MICHIGAN -- To comply with federal regulations that require states to evaluate the effectiveness of their teacher preparation programs, the Michigan Department of Education recently published the performance scores for the state's 31 programs. Almost all of the programs passed, and the two that did not will have two years to improve before facing state sanctions. Criteria for determining the rating--the maximum being 70 points--include the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification scores, new teacher surveys and program completion rates. Oakland University in Auburn Hills and Hope College in Holland each earned the top score among all the institutions, which was 68. Under Title II of the Higher Education Act, every October states must submit to the U.S. Department of Education information on certification and license requirements, pass rates on state assessments and teacher standards.
