CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

The accrediting body of the Teacher Education Unit at Minot State University, CAEP (the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation), requires Education Preparation Providers to disseminate information annually to the public, prospective teacher candidates, policymakers, the media, and CAEP. This information falls into two broad categories: 1. Program Impact (the performance of completers once employed), 2. Program Outcome and Consumer Information (yardsticks that states and policymakers will find useful).

Minot State University offers two pathways to initial teacher licensure (a stand-alone license which permits a teacher candidate to gain employment in a P-12 school) with the state of North Dakota. First, we offer a myriad of B.S.Ed. undergraduate degrees in a variety of programs (mathematics, English, special education, and early childhood education, to name a few). We also offer a graduate degree, an M.S. in Special Education, which can lead to initial licensure. The categories below are labeled either "Undergraduate" or "Graduate" to indicate which degree level the presented data represents.

Measures of Program Impact:

Impact that candidates' teaching has on P-12 learning and development - Undergraduate

Impact that candidates' teaching has on P-12 learning and development - Graduate

  • Currently collecting relevant data.

Impact that completers' teaching has on P-12 learning and development - Undergraduate

  Impact that completers' teaching has on P-12 learning and development - Graduate

  • Currently collecting relevant data.

Indicators of teaching effectiveness - Undergraduate

The Special Education Master’s of Science program does not currently collect this information. All EPPs in the state of North Dakota has adopted three common metrics to assess satisfaction of employers and of completers; however, these metrics were designed for B.S.Ed. completers only. Research indicated it is not feasible to adapt this tool for advanced programs at Minot State University. The SPED MS program faculty are currently developing an in-house survey tool for validation and reliability testing prior to implementation in Fall 2020.

Minot State University's advanced programs do not currently collect this information. The state of North Dakota adopted three common metrics to assess satisfaction of completers. However, these metrics were designed for B.S.Ed. candidates (undergraduate) only. The other Education Preparation Providers (EPPs) in the state who offer advanced programs are currently creating procedures to adapt the undergraduate common metrics to capture data for advanced program candidates.
