Measures for Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation CAEP/Spring 2020

Measure 1: CAEP Standard 4.1: Impact on P-12 Learning and Development

This information isn’t provided by the South Carolina State Department of Education.  There is proposed legislation requiring the SCDE to provide this data beginning in spring of 2023.  We are working in an innovative program through Learning Curve Achievement systems where we mentor our teacher candidates for up to 2 years after graduation.  The students are given access to our LCAS learning tools, and can test their students and gain feedback on their learning styles and how to teach to those styles.  We track our students in their new schools and have MOUs with all of our school district partners.  Meeting data and meeting recordings can be accessed through LCAS, or by request.
