A vital component of CAEP accreditation is the need for reliable and valid data to demonstrate continuous program improvement. Part of the requirements, specifically those in standard four of the CAEP accreditation standards, call on teacher education programs to demonstrate not only satisfaction of program completers and employers, but also the preparedness of completers to positively impact student learning. In this webinar, one campus that recently earned CAEP accreditation will highlight how they use a variety of data sources—including national benchmarking assessments of graduating seniors, alumni, and employers—to support CAEP accreditation efforts, benchmark against peer institutions, and drive continuous improvements to their teacher education program.

Director of Educator Preparation Program and Accreditation at University of Tennessee at MartinDonna Neblett began her career as a classroom teacher. From there, she served the Tennessee State Department of Education as a technology and data specialist before returning to her home school district to become the Director of Schools. As technology and the management of data converged, Mrs. Neblett joined a startup company, ThinkLink Learning, at Vanderbilt University and worked with them to guide the development of predictive student data for teachers to use in the classroom, following the idea that teachers should See What Students Know and Teach What They Need. She developed training modules and delivered them to thousands of classroom teachers across the Southeast. After ThinkLink Learning merged with Discovery Education, a subsidiary of The Discovery Channel, Mrs. Neblett established and managed a team of top educators from across the country to deliver professional development focused on using real time data to guide course content. She then served Dyersburg State Community College as Director of Admissions before moving to the University of Tennessee Martin as Director of a 1.3-million-dollar federal grant, Teacher Quality Partnership. Mrs. Neblett is currently serving at UT Martin as the Director of the Educator Preparation Program and Accreditation. Under her leadership, the UT Martin EPP became CAEP Accredited in 2018 with no stipulations or AFIs.
