Indiana was helpful in providing NCTQ with facts that enhanced this analysis.

Indiana stated that they are transitioning to new standards for program approval. These new policies are being phased in, with the transition being fully complete by September 2019. The new standards can be accessed at http://www.doe.in.gov/licensing/repa.

Indiana added that they are in the process of initiating a correlation study using the Core Academic Skills Assessments or CASA basic skills assessment in order to support a request to CAEP to use CASA as an acceptable measure for meeting the admissions requirements of Standard 3 of CAEP.

Indiana also noted that beginning November 1, 2016, an Indiana educator preparation program data matrix will be posted to their website and will include additional testing data, admissions criteria, retention/attrition/completion rates, and principal and teacher survey results. All admissions criteria are based on CAEP admissions requirements. Please visit http://www.doe.in.gov/licensing/educator-preparation-programs-epps to access this matrix.
