How can states be supported in educator preparation programs?

Reporting on educator preparation programs

States and educator preparation programs (EPPs)—both traditional and alternative—are required by law to collect extensive information from the new teacher pipeline, which graduates nearly 200,000 teacher candidates annually.

States and programs report on

  • State teacher certification requirements
  • Pass rates on teacher licensure examinations
  • How states identify and provide technical assistance to low-performing teacher preparation programs

Since 1998, Westat has partnered with the Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) within ED to collect the congressionally mandated accountability information. Westat supports EPPs in preparing their reports to states and collects the data from states that are reported to ED and annually to Congress. Westat has collected the data through an online survey since the project was initiated.
