2020 Ohio Educator Performance Reports

2020 Reports




High-quality teachers and principals are developed through high-quality educator preparation programs. To continuously improve the quality of educator preparation programs in Ohio, Ohio Revised Code 3333.048 requires the Chancellor of Higher Education and the Superintendent of Public Instruction to establish and publish metrics for institutions of higher education that prepare educators and other school personnel.

The identification of metrics and the report format were developed in collaboration with representatives from the public and private educator preparation institutions in Ohio, state agencies, and organizations. The Ohio Department of Higher Education works with the Ohio Department of Education and higher education institutions to collect data on the following identified metrics for the annual reports:

  • Licensure Test Pass Rates
  • Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) Results of Program Graduates
  • Ohio Principal Evaluation System (OPES) Results of Program Graduates
  • Value-added Data (EVAAS)
  • Candidate Academic Measures Considered for Program Admission
  • Field/Clinical Experiences
  • Pre-Service Teacher Candidate Survey Results
  • Resident Educator Survey Results
  • Principal Intern Survey Results
  • Principal Mentor Survey Results
  • Resident Educator Persistence Data
  • Excellence and Innovation Initiatives
  • National Accreditation


Limitations of the Report

  • Due to Ohio's ordered school-building closure and subsequent emergency legislation addressing the coronavirus pandemic-related issues (House Bill 197 of the 133rd General Assembly), OTES/OPES and Value-Added data will be limited or not available.  Additionally, during this challenging time, the distribution of some surveys were delayed, contributing to lower response rates.
  • Licensure pass rate data are from the Title II Report for 2018-2019 and reflect information for initial licenses only.  
  • Principal licensure pass rate data are reported by each institution and have not undergone the rigorous verification and matching process required by Title II.


Uses of the Report

The Educator Preparation Performance Report permits the public to view the aggregate data for all graduates statewide and by institution and program area. School districts and charter schools can use the report to make informed decisions about hiring; students interested in pursuing educator preparation programs can use the report to make decisions regarding which program to attend; and institutions of higher education can use the report to inform continuous improvement efforts, program planning, and research. These data will also assist state and institutional leaders in identifying trends to guide the development of targeted improvements in educator preparation programs throughout Ohio. The Ohio Department of Higher Education will continue its current practice of regularly convening representatives from schools, colleges, and departments of education to review the report data and format and to continuously address improvement opportunities related to emerging research and information learned from key state and national efforts.
