All approved educator preparation programs (EPPs) in the state of Texas provide the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) information about their programs as mandated in Texas Education Code §21.045 and §21.0452. This data is used to calculate the indicators in the Accountability System for Educator Preparation (ASEP).

Through the guided application of content knowledge, effective pedagogical models, varied field experiences, hands on learning opportunities, and reflective practice, pre-service teacher candidates develop their instructional expertise and acquire professional skills. The acquisition of expertise and skills is reflected in candidate exams, supervisor observations, principal reports, and candidate surveys.
