Educator Preparation Program Annual Reports

In 2011, The Wisconsin State Legislature passed Act 166, which requires the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) to produce an annual report of the State’s educator preparation programs (EPP). The report must include information on program completers and first time passage rates on the state required performance assessments.
The first report, the 2013 Educator Preparation Program (EPP) Annual Report, provides information on candidates who completed a Wisconsin EPP between September 1, 2011 and August 31, 2012 and were endorsed for Wisconsin licensure. It also provides valuable information on completers who applied for Wisconsin licensure and their employment in Wisconsin Public Schools the subsequent year. The annual report includes aggregated statewide data on all Wisconsin test takers during the report year. 
Statewide and individual institution reports can be found at http://tepdl.dpi.wi.gov/epp/annual-reports.
