The program continually reviews data and feedback about candidate experiences in the program as well as the quality and impact the teachers we produce. This information is compiled annually in an assessment report available upon request. A summary is available here:
- Over 90% of principals agree that PLU first year teachers meet or exceed their expectations
- Over 96% first time pass rate on the edTPA during the first consequential scoring cycle
- Over 90% employment rate for 2014 completers.
