CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

The creation of the 2016 Teacher Preparation Data Dashboards and Teacher Preparation Program Fact Book are two endeavors that are being voluntarily implemented to address the need to provide the public with access to outcome data about teacher preparation programs in Louisiana. The Teacher Preparation Data Dashboards provide a short summary of relevant data about individual teacher preparation programs in Louisiana. The Teacher Preparation Program Fact Book provides listings of data found in the individual data dashboards plus additional contextual data. The data below is sourced from the Louisiana Board of Regents.
