    1.7 Employer feedback on graduates and summaries of the results

In our efforts toward continuous improvement, our future goal for employer feedback on initial and advanced program candidates in the Department of Educational Studies is to survey a random sample of principals at schools within the four major school districts in Allen County in regard to our graduates’ effectiveness in their respective classrooms. Using the Indiana Department of Education Website, we can earmark our graduates at specific school sites within the county, and then provide school principals with a list of our graduates that are working in their buildings. By designing a Likert-type questionnaire and gathering responses from building principals on a 1-5 scale with 5 representing “very effective” we can begin to systematically collect this information. We are currently developing this questionnaire along with feedback from several local school principals. We should be able to gather pilot data in the fall of 2011.
