About Us

The core values of the OAA team are:
Accuracy, and

The OAA team strives to uphold these core values while working with college stakeholders to develop and implement strategic plans related to institutional accreditation, state program approval, and continuous program improvement. OAA also supports CEDHP engagement with schools, organizations, and the community, to put research into action. Simply stated, through data collection and analysis, the OAA team facilitates college leadership’s data-driven decision-making to enhance the quality of CEDHP educational programs and program graduates.

The organizational structure of the Office of Accreditation and Analytics (OAA) provides a team approach to facilitating ongoing accreditation, program approval, assessment, analytics, and practical application of research:

National Accreditations

In addition to UCF’s accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), the College of Education and Human Performance (CEDHP) is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Within the college, the Counselor Education program has maintained its accreditation through the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP) since 1997. Similarly, the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) has been recognizing the quality of CEDHP’s School Psychology program since 1989.

SACSCOC, NCATE, CACREP, and NASP accreditations are all significant endorsements of the outstanding education provided to our students.

State Program Approval

CEDHP educator preparation programs (EPP), at the undergraduate and graduate levels, undergo a rigorous state-approval process through the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE). The state approval process requires EPPs to provide exhaustive evidence of program continuous improvement and alignment with Florida state statute and State Board of Education rules designed to ensure EPP excellence. The most recent FLDOE 2017 site visit and review resulted in continued state-approval of all educator preparation programs through December 31, 2022.

Assessment Data

The College of Education and Human Performance (CEDHP) at the University of Central Florida is committed to the use of data to continually improve our programs. On an annual basis, the CEDHP uses various types of assessment data to evaluate program effectiveness and impact, candidate performance, employer satisfaction, and P-12 student learning gains. The unit applies an integrated approach to continuous quality improvement (CQI) at all levels and employs the university's institutional effectiveness (IE) assessment system to promote, manage, and document CQI initiatives and achievements. Every degree-granting academic program has an individualized IE assessment plan. For example, all programs that require candidates to pass the applicable Florida Teacher Certification Examination (FTCE) as a graduation requirement include a measure to collect, analyze, and apply FTCE sub-score data for program improvement. This ensures that all affected programs employ this powerful data source that offers strong potential to help identify opportunities to improve program quality and, in turn, candidate performance. Programs also typically use selected, key formative and/or summative course-based assessments, candidate exit surveys, and other sources of information to provide a balance of internal and external direct measures and indirect measures to help guide CQI decisions. Data are reviewed in an ongoing annual basis to identify strengths and possible areas for programmatic continuous quality improvement (CQI).

Program Candidate & Completer Performance Data
