Title II Report:

The Title II of the Higher Education Act of 1965 requires states to report annually on key elements of their teacher preparation programs and requirements for initial teacher certification. Colleges and universities with state approved teacher preparation programs must annually collect and submit information to the U.S. Department of Education through their state departments of education. The purpose of the data is to provide Congress, aspiring teachers, the education community, researchers and policymakers, and the public with information that Congress has identified as important to a basic understanding of teacher preparation in the United States.

The report provides information on admission requirements, number of prospective teachers enrolled, demographic composition of enrollees, number of enrollees who successfully completed the program, certification assessment passing rates, enrollment trends, and narrative on program elements.
