Title II Report – 2004-2005

The federal government this year required we report our Title II results for the 2004-2005 year. The report was submitted in April 2005. The University of Missouri S&T has a 100% passing rate on the PRAXIS for our computers. The state percent was 98%. A completer is one who has fulfilled all institutions guidelines to be recommended to the state for his/her teaching certificate. We have 100% of the completers teaching with 70% teaching in Missouri.
