Report to Governor and General Assembly on Teacher Education
Colorado Commission on Higher Education
This purpose of this report is to describe the condition of teacher education preparation at authorized colleges and universities in Colorado, including the total program enrollments, enrollments by licensure or endorsement area, and student demographic and institutional-level data. The report includes: (1) Overview of the enrollments in approved teacher education preparation programs; (2) Summaries of the findings from the follow-up site visits at two universities as part of the joint Colorado Department of Education and Colorado Commission on Higher Education program reauthorization process, pursuant to Colorado Revised Statutes; and (3) List of approved educator preparation programs, by institution. Data for the report was collected via the Student Unit Record Data System (SURDS) from those public and private institutions authorized to offer teacher education preparation programs in the state (a complete list of authorized institutions is found in Section IV of this report). Currently, all authorized teacher preparation programs require teacher candidates to pass the PLACE or Praxis assessments prior to student teaching. As a result, the pass rate on the PLACE and Praxis assessments of teacher preparation program graduates is 100 percent. Language requiring the reporting of results from a first- and third-year teacher survey was removed from statute in 2005. As a result, this report does not include information from such a survey that was present in previous reports. (Contains 7 footnotes and 13 tables.)
