Report Card on the Effectiveness of Teacher Training Programs
Tennessee State Board of Education
Tennessee Code Annotated 49-5-108 requires the state to develop a report card or assessment on the effectiveness of teacher training programs. This report includes data on the performance of each institution's graduates in the following areas required by state statute: placement and retention rates, Praxis results, and teacher effect data based on Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) scores. The analysis contained within this report is not based on a comprehensive set of measures upon which the quality of teacher training programs should be ranked. The information contained herein is to establish a baseline for teacher training programs and for the public to evaluate and review program effectiveness, based on specific measures of quality as defined by Tennessee Code Annotated 49-5-108. Currently, the main function of the report card is to provide information on the effectiveness of teacher preparation programs and is exclusively used as a reporting tool. This is the 3rd year that the report has been produced in this format. The report is currently being redesigned as part of the state's First to the Top initiatives. Appendices include: (1) Technical Report for the Effectiveness Study; (2) Traditionally Licensed Teachers Effect Data; (3) Alternatively Licensed Teachers Effect Data; (4) Combined Traditionally and Alternatively Licensed Teachers Effect Data; and (5) Praxis Results. Individual sections contain footnotes. [For the 2009 report, see ED514372.]
