Annual Accountability Measures for Academic Year (2020/2021): [September 1, 2020 – August 31, 2021)

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) requires that the Sultan Qaboos University, College of Education report on and show four CAEP Accountability Measures. These measures provide students and stakeholders with information and data on Sultan Qaboos University’s Education Preparation Providers (EPP) teacher candidate and graduate outcomes and impact on P-12 students.

The Sultan Qaboos University, College of Education reports can be found in the following list of CAEP measures with links to the supporting evidence and documentation.

Measure 1 :  Teaching Practice Effectiveness in Fall of 2020 & Spring of 2021 on supervisors & cooperating teachers.

The COE, Quality Assurance & Academic Accreditation (QA&AA) and Field Experience and Student Teaching (FIST) has administered a survey for program completers.
