Standard 1 Aspect D

Standard 2d - Evidence shows that program alumni, support students’ growth in international and global perspectives.


The Bilingual Authorization Program (BAP) selected three different measures to examine how program alumni create productive learning environments. The first measure comes from the BAP completer survey, the second measure comes from the BAP employer survey (Google form), and the third comes from the BAP alumni (1+ years) survey (Google form). Data collection for the latter two will begin during the 2021-2022 academic year, hence, there is no data to display for this report.  

Data Sources & Analysis

Data Source 1

BAP Completer Survey

Description of Data Source:
The first measure for Standard 2D comes from the BAP completer survey completed by 21 graduates for the spring 2021 term. The purpose for this survey is to understand graduates' experiences in the BAP and Multiple Subject credential program as well as employment outcomes. Moving forward, data from this survey will be analyzed and discussed in the program advisory committee meetings with the purpose of making the necessary changes to improve the program and to better serve our students and the interests of stakeholders, such as district partners. 

Only one (1) year of completer data is available because this is the first time a completer survey was created and disseminated among program graduates. Prior to the new coordinator’s leadership, the BAP was a very small program and no completer data was collected.

Perspective Captured from Data Source: Program Completer

Rationale for using Data Source:
The survey provides information about the program from the perspective of program completers who are now in the teaching profession.

Specific Elements of Data Source:
Survey Item 21: The BAP courses helped support my growth in international and global perspectives.

Definition of Success for Each Element:
Completers are asked to rate the extent to which they agree with each statement on a 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree) point Likert scale, with the programmatic goal being a score of 4.

Displays of Analyzed Data:Figure 1 #23

Link to Full Dataset:  BAP completer raw data

Interpretation of Data:
Responses indicate that 85.8% agreed or strongly agreed, 9.5% were neutral, and 4.8% disagreed with this statement. The respondents who agreed with this statement indicate that the program’s coursework and clinical practice placements are providing candidates with a worldview perspective of the teaching and learning of children. In particular, given the emphasis on preparing bilingual/dual immersion teachers, the BAP provides candidates with scholarship and practical examples for dual immersion programs with diverse cultures and languages. Relatedly, the rich diversity of Central Valley schools allow candidates to experience first-hand working with children and families from other countries which allows them to expand their worldview. 

The 9.5% of candidates that were neutral and 4.8% who disagreed on this statement indicate that the program may need to increase exposure and discussion of global perspectives via coursework readings, assignments, and discussions so that this goal can be explicit to candidates. Recommendations and input will be requested by program stakeholders during advisory committee meetings. 

Data Source 2

Planned BAP Employer Survey

Description of Data Source:
The BAP Employer Survey (Google form) was created by the program coordinator in Spring 2021 to align with CCTC and AAQEP standards. Prior to this point, the BAP program did not have an employer survey. Although the survey was not administered to employers of program completers, data collection will begin during the 2021-2022 academic year, hence, there is no data to display for this report. 

The survey includes both demographic information about the school and item that invite responders to rate the extent to which they on a scale of 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree).

Perspective Captured from Data Source: Employer

Rationale for using Data Source:
As a program, we understand the need to learn the perspectives of employers of our completers about how well our program prepared them to be bilingual educators. 

Specific Elements of Data Source:
Survey Item 11:

  • ​​Our district bilingual/dual immersion teachers support students’ growth in international and global perspectives

Definition of Success for Each Element:
The programmatic goal for survey responses will be 80% agreement with each statement. 

Plans for Collection & Analysis of Data:
Because this is a planned data source, there is no data to display. The survey will be reviewed and revised by the BAP advisory committee during the 2021-2022 academic year. Once completed, the survey will be disseminated among BAP district partners in the spring semester. Data will be used for continuous program improvement. 

Data Source 3

Planned  BAP Completer (1+ years) Survey

Description of Data Source:
The BAP Completer (1+ years) Survey (Google form) was created by the program coordinator in Spring 2021 to align with CCTC and AAQEP standards. Prior to this point, the BAP program did not have a method of gathering information from our completers once they are in the field about how well the program prepared them. Although the survey was not administered to employers of program completers, data collection will begin during the 2021-2022 academic year, hence, there is no data to display for this report. 

The survey will include both demographic information about the school and item that invite responders to rate the extent to which they on a scale of 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree).

Perspective Captured from Data Source: Completers

Rationale for using Data Source:
As a program, we understand the need to learn the perspectives of our completers about how well the program prepared them to be bilingual educators. 

Specific Elements of Data Source:
Survey Item 12: 

  • As a classroom teacher, I support students’ growth in international and global perspectives

Definition of Success for Each Element:
The programmatic goal for survey responses will be 80% agreement with each statement. 

Plans for Collection & Analysis of Data:
Because this is a planned data source, there is no data to display. The survey will be reviewed and revised by the BAP advisory committee during the 2021-2022 academic year. Once completed, the survey will be disseminated among BAP district partners in the spring semester. Data will be used for continuous program improvement.
