2012 Report Card on the Effectiveness of Teacher Training Programs
Tennessee Higher Education Commission
The Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation in 2007 requiring that the State Board of Education produce an assessment on the effectiveness of teacher training programs. The law requires that the report include data on the performance of each program's graduates in the following areas: placement and retention rates, Praxis II results, and teacher effect data based on the Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) scores. The 2012 report card includes additional indicators for each program; more information on the changes and additions can be found in the following section. The "2012 Report Card on the Effectiveness of Teacher Training Programs" contains information designed to inform the public of the effectiveness of teacher training programs and to provide preparation programs with the opportunity to improve the quality of programs through the use of data as set forth in the Tennessee Code Annotated 48-5-108. The following changes have been put into effect for the 2012 report: (1) The report will include data collected through individual teacher performance assessments as collected through the Tennessee Educator Acceleration Model (TEAM) as well as the alternative teacher evaluation models; and (2) Teacher training programs will have the ability to develop additional individual reports tailored to the intricacies of their program in order to facilitate continuous improvement. A glossary of terms is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. [For the 2011 report, "Report Card on the Effectiveness of Teacher Training Programs," see ED530920.]
