Accountability System for Educator Preparation

Approved educator preparation programs (EPPs) annually provide the Texas Education Agency and State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) information about their programs as mandated in Texas Education Code Section 21.045 and 21.0452. This data is used to calculate the indicators in the Accountability System for Educator Preparation (ASEP).

ASEP indicators are used to determine accreditation status of EPPs. ASEP is designed to determine EPP accreditation status annually based on program performance as reflected by the following accountability indicators:
Accountability Indicator 1a: Certification examination results for pedagogy and professional responsibilities (PPR) exams
Accountability Indicator 1b: Certification examination results for non-PPR exams
Accountability Indicator 2: Principal appraisal of the preparation of first-year teachers
Accountability Indicator 4a and 4b: Frequency and quality of field observations

For more information about ASEP and the performance indicators, visit the Consumer Information about Educator Preparation Programs Page.
