Employers and Completers Survey

Source:  Nebraska Department of Education administered the Nebraska First Year Teacher Survey and Third Year Teacher Survery to both principals and first year teachers, Spring 2019.  Evaluation indicators are based on the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) Intersate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) Model Core Teaching Standards, 2011.

Statewide response rates:  First year teacher survey by teachers: 71%; First year teacher survey by principals: 76%; Third year teacher survey by teachers: 74%; and Third year teacher survey by principals: 81%.

Respondents were asked to rate the extent to which the first year and third year teacher was effectively prepared for their school assignment on various indicators. These indicators were based on the degree to which the teacher meets the expectations:  Consistent, Frequent, Occasional, or Rare.  Both principals and teachers were asked to rate the teacher's impact on student learning, and to provide comments for informing the institution's continuing improvement efforts toward preparing classroom-ready teachers.

(Note: First year teacher reponses are from May 2018 graduates at the undergraduate level and completers of 2017-2018 cohort in the Initial Certification at the Advanced Level of Principals and Teachers during the 2018-2019 school year.)
