Teacher Preparation Report Card
In 2007, the Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation requiring the publication of a report on the effectiveness of teacher preparation programs throughout the state. Tennessee Code requires reporting on three indicators: placement and retention rates, Praxis II scores, and teacher effect data based on Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) scores.
The report card also includes a demographic and academic profile of each educator preparation provider as well as data on the effectiveness of program completers over time. The report allows programs access to data to help make targeted improvements and provides the public information on the effectiveness of teacher preparation program completers.
