Impact on p-12 Learning

(CAEP Component R4.1)

The Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) provided information on the impact that Mississippi State University (MSU) College of Education (COE) completers have on the learning and development of P-12 students. Mississippi SLDS is an interoperable data system that securely and efficiently facilitates research and analysis and provides linkages between early childhood, K-12, and postsecondary education and the workforce. Mississippi SLDS is powered through the National Strategic Planning and Analysis Research Center (nSPARC), a unit of Mississippi State University. 

Completers of MSU COE undergraduate and alternate route teacher education programs who began working as a teacher in a Mississippi public school the year after graduation are matched to the Mississippi Department of Education’s 18 statewide assessments to document completers’ impact on P-12 student learning. The statewide assessments consist of Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP) for Grades 3-8 in English, Math and Science and High School End of Course Exams for Algebra I, US History, Biology and English II.

Additionally, 14 institutions of higher learning that comprise the Mississippi Education Preparation Providers (Statewide EPP) provided the SLDS data to produce comparison data. Through the Mississippi SLDS, statewide data from the Mississippi Public School System were also used.

The data are disaggregated by traditional versus alternate route teacher education programs and listed in the link below:
