Measure 1 (Initial): Completer Effectiveness. (R4.1)

The EPP gathered data from four local elementary and middles schools where we could identify USA program completers listed for all classrooms for a grade level. We then used publicly available test data to review proficiency levels for K-12 students taught by our completers.

Measure 2 (Initial and Advanced): Satisfaction of employers and stakeholder involvement. (R4.2|R5.3|RA4.1)

The ALACTE New Teacher Employer Survey asks principals and other school administrators to evaluate our completers who are in their first year of employment. Our most recent data shows that our students are performing at or above their state of Alabama counterparts in all InTASC categories which were measured.
