(PEDS Report): Reporting is a member
requirement.


In the Educator Preparation Programs Fact
Book, we aggregate data for the unit and
each program.


The data are compiled annually by the
Assessment Coordinator and presented in
the College’s Educator Preparation Programs
Fact Book.
Information in the Fact Book is reviewed and
discussed by faculty during the annual Fall
Retreat. The data presented are considered in
planning and decision making, at both the
program and unit levels.

The Professional Education Data System Report (PEDS) is an important source
for the Online Fact Book. We are especially pleased that this year the data will
be more current with the two-year catch-up reporting.
