NCDPI Report Card and Performance Report Data:

The impact on P-12 learning and development, indicators displaying the level of teaching effectiveness in applying professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions, and the satisfaction of employers and employment milestones from our graduates are reported each year in our EPP Report Card, developed and distributed by the North Carolina Department of Public Schools. Beginning in 2020, NCDPI transitioned from publishing EPP data in the Report Card, to now reporting EPP data in the NC Educator Preparation Program Dashboard.

Cato Teacher Education Committee (TEC)

School partners and internal and external stakeholders serve on the Cato Teacher Education Committee (TEC). The TEC consists of teachers from the local school district, alumni, current students, principals from our Professional Development Schools, the Associate Superintendent-Elementary Equity Director in the CMS district, as well as faculty from Cato and Content Areas represented in the Secondary Education program.

This advisory committee works together engaging all partners in an on-going collaborative process to ensure all stakeholders are involved in the development, maintenance, and modification of programs. At the first TEC meeting of the academic year collected focused data, ideas from Cato faculty, and ideas from CMS partners are shared with the committee as part of the continuous improvement process.

This information becomes the focus of the TEC for the year in addition to the routine business that is required at each meeting. In addition to the TEC, the collaboration between Cato and partners takes place on an individual, situational basis.

Satisfaction of Completers

Graduates from the Cato School of Education are sent a survey after their first year of teaching to rate their level of preparedness to enter the classroom.  They were asked, “Overall, how prepared were you for your first year of teaching after completing all coursework, clinical experiences, and student teaching in the Teacher Education Program at Queens University?”  100% of responses showed that program completers were satisfied with their education and selected either “adequately prepared” or “very prepared.” 

Graduates and program completers of all Cato education programs are required to complete a program evaluation at the time of completing the program. Evaluations ask graduates and completers to reflect on their program experiences and if programs met state standards as well as their feeling of preparedness and future career plans.

Please see below the 2020-2021 program evaluations linked.
