Commitment to Increase in Excellence
Our EPP’s Annual Reporting Measures for CAEP continue to show that Emory & Henry College provides a quality teacher preparation program and that our alumni are making lasting impacts in their classrooms.
As shown in our Biennial and Title II reports, candidates in the teacher preparation program have a 100% pass rate on state-required assessments for teacher licensure and a 100% graduation rate for all teaching candidates who are admitted into our program.
All admitted candidates complete clinical experiences in the classroom, demonstrate their ability to teach effectively, and earn an endorsement to teach in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
As indicated in our Annual Report, 100% of our 2020-2021 graduates obtained employment in the field of education following their completion of our program.
Feedback from our alumni and their employers is essential in molding our program to respond to the changing needs of today’s classrooms. Our EPP works with the Virginia Education Assessment Collaborative (VEAC) to survey our alumni and their employers. Our alumni and their employers continue to report that our program completers are well prepared for careers in education.
