    *note, Second Ed consolidated in 2011, no data until the 2012 academic year

    Dr. Jeanne Burns, the Board of Regents Associate Commissioner for Teacher and Leadership Initiatives, has informed all EPPs that at the present time, a process does not exist in Louisiana to calculate Graduation Rates of candidates in graduate programs or candidates in non-degree advanced programs that result in licensure. Thus, data are not currently available. During the months of May-June (2018), the Board of Regents will work with EPPs to identify a set of consistent procedures for EPPs across the state to use to calculate Graduation Rates for advanced programs. During 2018-19, EPPs will use the procedures to calculate Graduation Rates for candidates in advanced programs and report them in the April 2019 CAEP Annual Report.

  2. Ability of Completers to Meet Licensing (Certification) and any Additional State Requirements; Title II (Initial & Advanced Levels)

    One hundred percent of our completers meet licensing requirements for the state of Louisiana. Completers in all programs performed at or above the state mean (except for Secondary Mathematics and Social Studies, which were slightly below) for the past three years. Program faculty discuss the sub-sections data for Praxis and confer with content faculty to improve coursework offered by the Math Department and the Department of Social Studies.

  3. Ability of Completers to be Hired in Education Positions for Which they have Prepared (Initial and Advanced Levels)

    Compass evaluations for both candidates and graduates, along with employer surveys indicate that LSUS prepares effective classroom teachers. Those results are supported by the focus groups held with graduates and principals.
