Measure One: Impact on P-12 learning and development

Interns' Impact on P-12 Student Learning and Development

As a Tier 1 research institution with nationally accredited teacher education programs, the College of Education & Human Development must document the impact our interns have on the students they teach. This documentation comes from two sources: the students’ voice about the intern’s effectiveness and the data derived from students’ grades for a lesson with pre- and post-assessments.

The Interns' Impact on P-12 Students Through the Students' Voices

The interns’ lead teachers administered a survey to P-12 students about the intern’s performance in four areas: planning, classroom environment, instruction, and professional responsibilities. The survey items were gleaned from the internship evaluation rubric. Survey statements and administration were modified for young students, non-readers, and emerging readers. The combined percentage of “always” or “often” is reported as follows:

Impact on P-12 Students

Lesson assessments typically include more than one objective so the intern was asked to hone in on one objective and the grading data that does or does not support student learning. For this part, interns chose one lesson and reported the students’ pre- and post-assessment results. These data were reported under the supervision of the lead teacher. The mean is reported as follows:

Student Impact (K-6)
Assessment K-6
Number of students. 867
Based on the pre- and post-assessment results, do you think you made a positive impact on students academic learning? (0%=no and 100%=yes) 92%
What was the overall grade point average of the pre-assessment? 54%
What was the overall grade point average of the post-assessment? 76%
Student Impact (7-12)
Assessment 7-12
Number of students. 1103
Based on the pre- and post-assessment results, do you think you made a positive impact on students academic learning? (0%=no and 100%=yes) 93%
What was the overall grade point average of the pre-assessment? 59%
What was the overall grade point average of the post-assessment? 74%
