The NExT Supervisor and Transition to Teaching Survey Summary

The Network for Excellence in Teaching (NExT) is a consortium of teacher preparation programs at fourteen colleges and universities in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota with funding from the Bush Foundation.

4. Satisfaction of Completers

In fall of 2018, the EPP created a completer survey. This survey was validated by faculty and sent to 143 completers as part of the pilot implementation. There were 28 participants in the survey (20%). In addition to better understand our completers, the goal was two pronged. First, we wanted to ascertain if our completers used the concepts taught to them in their programs. And secondly, what was their perception of the AKCOE program effectiveness? In the spring of 2020, this data will be compared to the NExT Transition to Teaching Survey.

96% of alumni agree that their program prepared them to create a positive, engaging, and equitable learning environment.
