Current Accreditation Status

Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) accreditation of the Program

The Program in Teacher Preparation at Princeton University which is designed to produce students who demonstrate subject matter knowledge, understanding of learning and teaching, and instructional proficiency as identified by relevant standards is accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council - TEAC (now the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation - CAEP) for a period of seven years, from June 12, 2012 to June 12, 2020. This accreditation certifies that the Program in Teacher Preparation at Princeton University has provided evidence that it adheres to TEAC’s quality principles. As part of the accreditation process, the Program is required to provide information on the performance of its students. The Program regularly collects such student performance data as PRAXIS II test scores (see Title 2 reporting above), course grades, clinical evaluations, pupil surveys, employer evaluations, and other relevant measures. These data are collected, analyzed, and tested for reliability and validity as measures of achievement in support the Program’s claims made to TEAC as part of the accreditation process. The program is proud of the accomplishments of its students and alumni, and these data support our claims that program students know their subject area, possess the necessary pedagogical knowledge to meet the instructional needs of their students, and demonstrate teaching skill that is both caring and professional.
