Annual Reporting Measures for CAEP Standards

HUSOE is a CAEP-accredited provider that prepares dynamic teachers, educational leaders and human service professionals committed to improve teaching, learning and research in urban and other diverse settings. Significant features of our academic programs include opportunity to travel abroad for global education experiences, engagement with our Urban Superintendents Academy and the new Ph.D program in Higher Education Leadership and Policy Studies. As demonstrated by our rise in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report ranking, we continuously move forward to become a premier leader in educator preparation.


The student teaching internship is a full-time intensive preparation experience scheduled near the end of the candidate’s academic program of study. The 10-week internship in elementary education provides a placement for teacher candidates to demonstrate many competencies, including knowledge of content across the disciplines, effective instruction, and collaboration with families and colleagues. Candidates are formally assessed twice during the internship, once by the University Supervisor and once by the Cooperating Teacher. Evaluation ratings are 5-Excellent, 4-Good, 3-Fair, 2-Needs Improvement and 1-Unacceptable. All of the elementary education candidates (N=5; 100%) received at least a rating of "Good (4.0)" over the past year, exceeding the benchmark of 80%. Mean scores ranged from 4.60 to 5.00.
