When States Provide Limited Data: Guidance on Using Standard 4 to Drive Program Improvement
Standard 4 requires evidence of impact on P-12 learning but does not require statewide data for EPPs to meet the accreditation standard. While some states have determined that student impact data cannot be shared, other states provide aggregated data to EPPs specific to student impact. This guidance helps to clarify what to do if your educator preparation provider exists in a state that provides limited or no data relevant to Standard 4.
Evidence Option: The Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET)
The Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET) is an example of a state assessment that can be used as evidence for component 3.2. A recent Office of Educational Quality and Accountability (OEQA) study showed a strong and positive relationship between ACT (nationally normed) and OGET (state normed) tests. CAEP accepts the use of the state assessment as evidence for compliance with component 3.2.
