Wisconsin DPI Report Card for UW-Madison 

Find below questions and answers about the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) report card and the UW-Madison School of Education’s data table.

  • What years are available?  Currently, only the report card for 2011-12 graduates is available. The report card for 2012-13 graduates is coming soon, with 2013-14 to follow later in 2015. From then on, the report cards will be issued annually in the spring or summer.

  • What is in the DPI report card?
    • The number of people the School of Education endorsed for initial educator licenses in Wisconsin (including teacher, pupil services, and administrative licenses)
    • The number and percent of those endorsed who apply for one or more Wisconsin licenses.
    • The number and percent of those endorsed who were employed in Wisconsin public schools.
    • First time and subsequent pass rates for all students on teacher licensing assessments required in the reporting year.
    • In the future, the report card will include job performance information by licensing category for graduates who work in Wisconsin public schools.

  • Why does the report card not include data about educators who are licensed or employed outside of Wisconsin, or who are employed in private schools inside or outside Wisconsin? The Department of Public Instruction does not have access to licensing or employment records in other states or any private school.
