Measure 2: Satisfaction of Employers and Stakeholder Involvement
R4.2 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 2022 survey was sent to the employers of program completers from 2021-2022 who were in their first year of teaching in Oklahoma; 28 administrator/mentors responded. Due to some programs having low numbers, data are aggregated across all programs.
Of the 28 employer administrators of program completers, 82.15% believe that, overall, CU’s first-year teachers’ preparation and route to certification effectively prepared them to have a positive impact on P12 student learning and development.
