CAEP Annual Reporting Measure 1 (Initial): Completer effectiveness. (R4.1) 

The following outcome data pertaining to teacher preparation programs in Louisiana is sourced from the Louisiana Board of Regents.

Teacher Preparation Data Dashboards provide a short summary of relevant data about Alternate and Traditional teacher preparation programs at ULM. 

Teacher Preparation Program Fact Books contain data from the Teacher Preparation Data Dashboards and other contextual information about state-approved teacher preparation programs in Louisiana. The title of the document was changed to Louisiana Teacher Preparation Report for 2022. 

Note: Due to discrepancies found in data used to calculate Growth in Student Learning Scores and Compass Teacher Evaluation Scores for new teachers completing individual teacher preparation programs, it was not possible to release 2019 Teacher Preparation Data Dashboards or create a 2019 Teacher Preparation Fact Book.  Please refer to the 2020 Title II Program Reports for information about teacher preparation programs pertaining to listing of programs, number of enrolled candidates, race and gender of enrolled candidates, number of completers, GPA of completers, Praxis passage rates, and other relevant information.
