Measure 2: Satisfaction of Employers and Stakeholder Involvement

4.3 Satisfaction of employers and employment milestones

The Oklahoma Educational Quality and Accountability (OEQA) office has developed a statewide survey of administrators who have hired initial program completers for all educator preparation programs across the state. Surveys are deployed in late spring of the completer’s first year of teaching. Items align directly to the InTASC standards with employers rating the extent to which they agree that each item is true about the specified first year teacher on a 4-point scale from Strongly Disagree (1) to Strongly Agree (4).

The 2021 survey was sent to the employers of 44 program completers from 2019-2020 who were in their first year of teaching in Oklahoma with 36% returning the survey. Due to some programs having low numbers, data are aggregated across all programs.

Each spring, the EPP assembles a group of advanced program employers to discuss their satisfaction with the educational leadership program completers hired by their districts. The Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies leads the group using a protocol devised to get at both satisfaction and areas of possible program improvement. Comments from employers indicated that Cameron completers are very strong candidates and “real rock stars.” Employers also mentioned that the program builds a network of good resources and support after graduation for completers as well as doing a good job of providing completers with necessary fundamentals.
