Snapshot of Teacher Preparation at UNM
CAEP Annual Reporting Measures
The New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) has been unable to collect student achievement data or teacher evaluation data due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that we have not been able to update Measures 1 and 2 since 2018-2019. We are currently working with the PED and expect to have all data updated by the end of 2022.
In support of our commitment to continuous improvement and transparency, the COEHS tracks our candidates as they complete their programs and enter the workforce. The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) has identified eight outcome and impact measures to aid in evaluating completers. Below is a snapshot of what we have learned, with full reports on each measure also posted.
