Title II Certification Pass Rate Data
ONU's Teacher Education Unit seeks to prepare candidates who will be "Professionals Influencing Lives:" through a strong knowledge foundation; proficiency in curriculum, instruction, and evaluation; a high level of professionalism; and a Christ centered character. The Unit seeks to prepare candidates who view teaching as a noble profession, a lifelong pursuit, and a continual search for excellence.
The U.S. Congress has asked the U.S. Department of Education to require all colleges and universities with teacher education programs to release certification test pass rates of program completers. In most recent Title II data, every Elementary Education major at Olivet who took an academic content area Illinois certification test passed, surpassing the state average in those particular academic areas. Overall, 100 percent of Olivet Teacher Education students passed the academic content and basic skills tests and 98 percent passed the Assessment of Professional Teaching test for State of Illinois certification. Complete Title II information may be obtained through Olivet's Director of Teacher Education.
