The Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice (FCE & SCJ) is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). This accreditation covers the following initial teacher preparation programs: Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education - ESOL/Reading Endorsements and Bachelor of Science in Exceptional Student Education - ESOL Endorsement. The accreditation also covers the following advanced-level programs: M.S. in Reading Education, Ed.S. in Educational Leadership, M.S. in Educational Leadership, M.S. in School Counseling, and Psy.S. in School Psychology. As a requirement of CAEP accreditation, Educator Preparation Providers (EPPs) are expected to publicly and prominently display data pertaining to four accountability measures established by CAEP. Nova Southeastern University’s Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice has reported on the four accountability measures for both Initial Licensure and Advanced-Level programs below.
Completer Impact and Effectiveness (Component R4.1) is assessed utilizing the state’s Annual Program Performance Report (APPR) scores, which comprise 6 accountability measures, including student performance on statewide assessments (Value-Added Model). Overall APPR scores by program are reported below, in addition to Value-Added Model (VAM) data.
Data and information pertaining to satisfaction of employers and stakeholder involvement (Components R4.2|R5.3| RA.4.1) are presented below.
