Education Success Stories
One hundred percent of recent department alumni are employed or pursuing advanced studies within one year of graduation.
The pass rate for Gallaudet education program completers on state licensure tests for initial teacher certification is better than 90 percent.
2021 – 2022
Measure 1 (Initial): Completer effectiveness. (R4.1)
Data for Measure 1 is currently under development/not yet available due to the limited availability of state and school-level data available during this period. The EPP is currently working with recent completers and partner schools to determine ways to demonstrate completer effectiveness in schools that have effectiveness data available. We anticipate completer effectiveness data will be available for the next reporting cycle.
Measure 2 (Initial and Advanced): Satisfaction of employers and stakeholder involvement. (R4.2|R5.3| RA4.1)
Due to the low number of respondents to our 2021-2022 alumni and employer surveys, as of the due date of the report, we are not able to assure confidentiality or respondents. As we receive additional responses, we will update this site.
Measure 3 (Initial and Advanced): Candidate competency at completion. (R3.3)
Teacher Work Sample

2020 – 2021
Measure 1 – Completer effectiveness
Data for Measure 1 is currently under development/not yet available due to the limited
availability of state and school-level data available during this period. The EPP is currently
working with recent completers to determine more effective ways to demonstrate completer
effectiveness in schools that do have effectiveness data available. We anticipate that
completer effectiveness data will be available for the next reporting cycle.
Measure 2 – Satisfaction of Employers and stakeholder involvement
Due to the low number of respondents to our 2020-2021 alumni and employer surveys, as of
the due date of the report, we are not able to assure confidentiality or respondents. As we
receive additional responses, we will update this site.

* Due to the impact of the pandemic, the EPP was not able to carry out the data collection for Standards 4.1: Impact on P – 12 Learning and Development and 4.2: Teacher Effectiveness. We are currently working on obtaining data for the 2020-2021 academic year and anticipate that we will have completer data available by the end of the next reporting period. Because of this, we have included candidate data for 2019-2020 standards 4.1 and 4.2
