In 2021-22, the following percentages of test takers passed all three edTPA tasks: Business Education: 0% (n = 2), Elementary Literacy: 61% (n = 46), Elementary Mathematics: 57% (n = 44), English as an Additional Language: 100% (n = 2), Family and Consumer Science: 75% (n = 8), K-12 Performing Arts: 60% (n = 10), K-12 Physical Education: 25% (n = 12), Secondary English Language Arts: 100% (n = 2), Secondary History and Social Studies: 78% (n = 18), Secondary Mathematics: 29% (n = 7), Secondary Science: 20% (n = 5), Special Education: 73% (n = 60), Visual Arts: 57% (n = 7), World Languages: 0% (n = 4).

Minnesota Teacher Licensure Exams

The Professional Education Licensing and Standards Board recently approved changes to reporting requirements for the Miinnesota Teacher Licensure Exams. As a result of these changes, the College of Education is not required to report MTLE pass rates to the Professional Education Licensing and Standards Board during program review. The Title II annual institutional report still includes pass rates by test area. 

Advanced Programs

Advanced programs demonstrate candidate competency through key assessments aligned to the content and pedagogical standards outlined in the Minnesota Administrative Rules for Teacher and Other School Professional Licensing.

Key assessment data is collected in Anthology Portfolio, a web-based assessment software. Students create portfolios for their licensure program and submit materials for assessment as they complete program coursework. Program faculty review and discuss the assessment results semi-annually and use the information gathered for program review and improvement.


Measure 4: Ability of Completers to Be Hired in Education Positions for Which They Have Been Prepared

The university administers a Graduate Survey annually to program completers. From this survey, we gather information on the employment status of graduates. The graphs linked below show graduates' status one year after graduation in the following categories: Available Unemployed, Continuing Education, Employed Related, Employed Unrelated Not Seeking Related, Employed Unrelated Seeking Related, Not Available for Employment, and Status Unknown.
