Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness

Data was gathered of first-year and third-year teachers in Nebraska through the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) survey sent to principals. In the 2020 Nebraska First and Third-Year Teacher Surveys, all Peru State College-prepared teachers were scored by their principals according to the knowledge skills and dispositions for teaching evidenced in the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) standards.  The data table indicates that in most standards Peru State College teachers are just below the state average but by their third year, overwhelmingly all Peru State College-prepared teachers are performing at the proficient level of performance.

*The InTASC standards were updated in 2020.  Additional years will be added to this data table as it becomes available.
