The 2016 NYC DOE trend report documents Adelphi’s graduates’ applications and hiring rates for the past three years into NYC teaching positions. The report also provides comparative data for teaching applicants from all colleges and universities for the same time period.
The percentage of Adelphi applicants hired by the NYC DOE has increased over the three year period 2013-2015, as has the percentage of our graduates hired in shortage fields such as TESOL, special education math and science. In 2015, 54% of Adelphi’s applicants were hired in shortage areas compared with 43% in 2013. Graduates from other area universities were hired at a lower rate of 48%. This demonstrates that we are preparing teacher candidates with the relevant qualifications and experience to teach in high need areas and in New York City.
For the first time, the New York City Department of Education (NYC DoE) has prepared a Teacher Preparation Program Report by documenting, first, our graduates’ contributions to the NYC public school system across six measures of teacher performance, retention, and supply from 2008-2012. On a second report, our graduates are compared with the average performance of NYC DoE new teachers prepared through 12 similar programs.
Below is a summary based on the three key metrics of interest to the NYC DoE regarding Adelphi University RSA SOE graduates:
Adelphi University graduates help meet NYC DoE’s diverse recruitment needs
Adelphi University graduates perform well based on 3 metrics of performance
Adelphi University graduates are retained after three years
Wall Street Journal, August 14, 2013 (Allison Fox)
