About Louisiana’s Teacher Education Programs Do all of Louisiana’s teacher candidates come from tradi/onal teacher prepara/on programs? No. According to the Board of Regents, in 2010-11, a total of 1,183 teacher candidates completed undergraduate teacher prepara*on programs; 1,109 teacher candidates completed alternate programs oered by public and private universi*es; and 528 teacher candidates completed alternate programs oered by private providers. A descrip*on of each type of candidate can be found at the following URL: h%p://regents.la.gov/academic -aairs/teacher-educa*on-ini*a*ves/value-added-teacher-prepara*on-program-assessmen-model/

What does it mean for a teacher educa/on program to be “na/onally accredited?� The Na*onal Council for Accredita*on of Teacher Educa*on (NCATE) is a na*onal accredi*ng body for schools, colleges, and departments of educa*on that is authorized by the U.S. Department of Educa*on. All UL System instuons are accredited by NCATE. NCATE determines which schools, colleges, and departments of educa*on meet rigorous na*onal standards in preparing teachers and other school specialists for the classroom. It indicates that the school underwent rigorous external review by professionals, that the performance of a teacher candidate in the program has been thoroughly assessed before he or she is recommended for licensure, and that programs meet standards set by the teaching profession at large.

How have Louisiana teacher candidates performed on licensure examina/ons? In 2010-11, 98-100 percent of all undergraduate teacher candidates passed all teacher licensure examina*ons (e.g., Praxis) prior to comple*on of their programs, and 100 percent of all alternate teacher candidates passed all teacher licensure examina*ons prior to comple*on of their programs. What is the Praxis? Test publisher ETS describes the Praxis tests on its website: The Praxis Series™ tests measure teacher candidates’ knowledge and skills and its passage is required of all teacher graduates at UL System ins*tu*ons. According to test publisher, ETS, the tests are used for licensing and cer*ďŹ ca*on processes and include: Praxis I ÂŽ Pre-Professional Skills Tests (PPSTÂŽ) These tests measure basic skills in reading, wri*ng and mathema*cs. In addi*on to licensure, these tests are oKen used to qualify candidates for entry into a teacher educa*on program. See Praxis I informa*on. Praxis II ÂŽ Subject Assessments These tests measure subject-speciďŹ c content knowledge, as well as general and subject-speciďŹ c teaching skills, that you need for beginning teaching. See Praxis II informa*on.

About Louisiana’s Teacher Education Programs What is a Value-Added Assessment of Teacher Prepara/on Programs? It is a model that uses student achievement in core subjects (language arts, mathema*cs, reading, science and social studies) to assess the eec*veness of teacher prepara*on programs. The Louisiana Department of Educa*on assigns all teachers (who teach in tested grade levels in public schools in Louisiana) value-added scores, based upon the extent to which their students met predicted growth in achievement. The scores are expressed as a label that corresponds with percen*le ranges of value-added scores for all individual teachers: Ineec*ve (at or below 10th percen*le), Eec*ve Emerging (11th to 49th percen*le), Eec*ve ProďŹ cient (50th to 79th percen*le) and Highly Eec*ve (80th percen*le and above). The 50th percen*le represents the average performance of all teachers with students in the tested grades in public schools in Louisiana. All teacher prepara*on programs with value-added scores have a minimum of one content area where 50 percent or more of their ďŹ rst and second year teachers’ value-added scores are within the Eec*ve ProďŹ cient or Highly Eec*ve ranges, based upon the 2010-11 scores of all individual teachers in Louisiana. According to the Board of Regents, it had been an*cipated that the majority of new teachers would be in the Eec*ve Emerging range since they were beginning teachers; however, a greater percentage than ancipated of ďŹ rst- and second-year teachers had value-added scores in the Eecve ProďŹ cient and Highly Eecve ranges. The Execu*ve Summary can be found at the following URL: h%p://regents.la.gov/academic-aairs/teachereduca*on-ini*a*ves/value-added-teacher-prepara*on-program-assessmen-model/ While each university’s proďŹ le sheet shows the average value-added score, the following are ranges of value-added ra/ngs of graduates in Eec/ve Emerging through Highly Eec/ve for the mul/ple test content areas. Please note, Grambling State University was one of seven Louisiana colleges without the minimum number of 25 par*cipants to calculate a value-added score. Louisiana Tech University: 84-94%

Southeastern Louisiana University: 86-97%

McNeese State University: 83-97%

University of Louisiana at LafayeLe: 82-92%

Nicholls State University: 80-100%

University of Louisiana at Monroe: 80-100%
