CAEP Annual Accreditation Report Measures

Best Practices for EPP's Annual Accreditation Reporting Measures Data Display

Measure 1: Impact on P-12 Learning and Development

The Kremen School of Education and Human Development (Kremen) analyzes data gathered annually by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) on all first-year teachers in the state of California. The Employer Survey asks administrators who employ recent program graduates to provide information about their perception on how well new teachers were prepared by their preparation programs and includes questions relating to the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP). Results provide data for California State University (CSU), the University of California (UC), and Private Institutions about employers’ perceptions of program effectiveness and candidate preparation. 

The following document displays data pertaining to first-year teachers who completed an Education program at Kremen.

Measure 2: Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness

The CTC has established a statewide Standards-Based Performance Assessment process, aligned with the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP), that is used to demonstrate candidate performance in content, coursework, and field experiences during the candidates’ internship(s). This performance assessment is used to evaluate teacher candidates during student teaching. The Performance Assessment is used as an indicator on CTC’s Annual Performance Report (APR) which determines initial certification and accreditation of Education programs in the state. While most of the California State University campuses use the CalTPA (administered by Pearson) to assess student teacher’s proficiency in California’s Teacher Performance Expectations (TPEs), Fresno State developed its own in-house system, FAST II, which is now in its second iteration. This CTC approved two-part system is used to collect, report, and analyze the data associated with this assessment. 

In addition, the CTC surveys master teachers, asking them to provide information about their perception on how well the student teachers were prepared by their preparation programs. The annual Master Teacher Survey collects responses for all student teachers from the same institution in one survey.

Measure 3: Satisfaction of Employers and Employment Milestones

The CTC gathers data annually on all first-year teachers in California. The survey is completed by principals of first-year teachers. The survey contains a question asking principals to rate their perspective of the overall quality of the teacher preparation program in which their first-year teacher was prepared, as well as questions about the first year teacher’s level of preparation in specific areas. The following documents display data pertaining to first-year teachers who completed an Education program at Kremen.

Measure 4: Satisfaction of Completers

The CTC gathers data annually on all first-year teachers in California, disaggregated by program. The survey contains multiple questions related to the completers’ self-reported feelings of preparation in specific areas, as well as overall satisfaction with their teacher preparation program. The CSU Educator Quality Center administers surveys annually to completers of the Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Education Specialist Programs to gather data about graduates’ perceptions of the program. Results can be disaggregated by various measures including campus, year of completion, respondent race/ethnicity, and type of credential.  *

Measure 5: Graduation Rates

The EPP reports the number of teacher candidates admitted into Teacher Education initial certification programs and the program completers. Kremen’s programs are designed to ensure that 100% of our completers meet all state requirements for certification.

Measure 6: Ability of Completers to Meet Licensing and State Requirements for Certification

The EPP reports the number of teacher candidates admitted into Teacher Education initial certification programs and the program completers. Kremen’s program is designed to ensure that 100% of our completers meet all state requirements for certification. Thus, Measures 5 and 6 are the same. The programs follow state requirements for licensing, and the credential analyst checks off all testing and academic requirements when they apply for their credential. The analyst then checks off all requirements on their credential application.

Measure 7: Ability of Completers to be Hired in Education Positions for Which They Have Been Prepared

Self-reported data to determine the rate at which certified Initial program completers are employed in teaching or other positions after program completion.

Measure 8: Student Loan Default Rates and Other Consumer Information.

  • Cohort Default Rate and Other Consumer Information

The Average Loan Amount for All Undergrads at California State University, Fresno was $6,035 Per Year. After three years, 5.0% of these students defaulted on their loans.

A student is considered to be in default on a student loan if they have not made a payment in more than 270 days. The official student loan default rate for a school is calculated by measuring how many students are in default three years after graduation.

Loan default rates may indicate how well a university is helping students afford to attend college without undue reliance on loans, particularly unsubsidized loans When compared to the average three-year default rate of 9.3%, the default rate at California State University, Fresno is very good. This could be an indication that the college is working to meet the financial needs of students in such a way that reliance on student loans, particularly unsubsidized loans, is minimized for the majority of students.
