Teacher Education Summary Data 2019-2020

2019-2020 Annual Reporting Measures

This data represents the 2018-2019 academic year. This data represents responses from all undergraduate programs at MSUM.

Survey data is collected from three NExT Common Metrics Surveys: Exit Survey, Transition to Teaching Survey, and Supervisor Survey.

MSUM 2018-2019 Response Rates:

  • Transition to Teaching Survey = 21%
  • Supervisor Survey = 49%
  • Exit Survey = 43%

Each survey is designed to collect information related to four constructs: Professionalism, Learning Environment, Diverse Learners, and Instructional Practice. The below summaries provide information related to each construct. Data indicates consistency across annual reporting years.

Means are based on a four-point scale.

Professionalism: 94% (M = 3.71) of 2018-2019 graduates, 98% (M = 3.67) of first-year teachers, and 96% (M = 3.77) of supervisors agree/tend to agree MSUM graduates are prepared to continue developing as a teacher through using colleague feedback. This represents a noteworthy trend as previous years data indicated 95%, 97%, and 93%, respectively. Similarly, 98% (M= 3.71) of 2018-2019 graduates, 100% (M = 3.86) of first-year teachers, and 98% (M = 3.75) supervisors agree/tend to agree MSUM graduate are prepared to act as advocates for students.

Learning Environment: Trend data also indicates that MSUM candidates are adept at creating positive learning environments. Particularly 96% (M = 3.71) of 2018-2019 graduates, 95% (M= 3.63) of first-year teachers, and 92% (M = 3.64) of supervisors agree/tend to agree that MSUM graduates promote student engagement.

Diverse Learners: 2017-2018 data indicated: 94% of first year teachers and 93% of supervisors agree/tend to agree MSUM graduates can differentiate instruction for different learners or for different developmental needs, respectively. 2018-2019 data also indicates candidates can differentiate instruction with 92% (M= 3.52) of 2018-2019 graduates, 93% (M =3.47) of first-year teachers, and 97% (M=3.63) of supervisors agree/tend to agree that MSUM graduates differentiate instruction for diverse learners.

Instructional Practice: 97% (M = 3.70) of 2018-2019 graduates, 93% (M = 3.64) of first year teachers, and 99% (M = 3.88) of supervisors agree/tend to agree graduates are prepared to and can effectively teach their subject matter. This is a consistent finding across annual reporting years!

Additionally, 100% of supervisors agree/tend to agree first year teachers from MSUM can plan lessons using learning goals and objectives and 95% of first-year teachers agree/tend to agree MSUM prepared them for this same skill!
