Description The unit has a conceptual framework that defines how our programs prepare candidates to be well-rounded educators. Every course in the unit addresses particular belief statements in the conceptual framework. The conceptual framework was designed and developed by faculty inside and outside the unit.
Current resources Data collected each semester from candidates reflecting on each course (undergraduate and graduate) and it’s alignment with the conceptual framework Bibliography of references from course syllabi that support the conceptual framework’s vision statement and belief statements Spa reports Needs: All professors in all courses (undergraduate and graduate) require conceptual framework reflections from their students every semester. Once they are submitted, each professor uses the rubric to assess their reflections. If this is not done, we don’t get the data. Updated bibliographical references to support the vision statement and the belief statements from multiple professors across the unit Questions
Description Candidates preparing to work in schools as teachers or other school professionals know and demonstrate the content knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge and skills, pedagogical and professional knowledge and skills, and professional dispositions necessary to help all students learn. Assessments indicate that candidates meet professional, state, and institutional standards.
Exhibits -Key Assessments, scoring guides used for assessing learning against standards and proficiencies identified in the Conceptual Framework -Data and summaries of results on key assessments including proficiencies identified in the Conceptual Framework - Key Assessments, scoring guides used for assessing professional dispositions, including fairness and the belief that all students can learn
- Data and summaries of results on key assessments of candidates’ professional dispositions (disaggregated by program, off-campus, distance learning, etc.) -Examples of candidates’ assessment and analysis of P-12 student learning -Samples of candidates’ work (portfolios at different proficiency levels across the unit) -Follow-up studies of graduates and summaries of results -Employer feedback on graduates and summaries of results -Data collected by state and/or national agencies of educator preparation program and the effectiveness of their graduates in classrooms and schools, including student achievement data
Description ◦ The unit has an assessment system that collects an analyzes data on application qualifications, candidate and graduate performance, and unit operations to evaluate and improve the performance of candidates, the unit, and its programs
Current Resources ◦ LiveText data from program and unit assessments ◦ Program data analysis submitted to SPAs ◦ Any examples of program changes in response to data gathered from the assessment (completed today) Needs ◦ Graduate assessments for those programs who do not submit to a NCATE SPA ◦ Policies, procedures, and practices for managing candidate complaints ◦ File of candidate complaints and unit responses and resolutions ◦ Policies, procedures, practices ensuring that key assessments are valid, fair, accurate, consistent, free of bias ◦ Examples of significant changes made to courses, programs, and the unit in response to data gathered from the assessment system Questions
Description - The unit and its school partners design, and evaluate field experiences and clinical practice so that teacher candidates and other school professionals develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions necessary to help all students learn.
Current Resources SPA Principal Author Needs Program requirements for field experiences and clinical practice Requirement for degree/non-degree program s of each levels (bachelor’s, pest-baccalaureate, or master’s Indicate the number and nature of required field experience or clinical practice and the total number of required hours in each Questions
The unit designs, implements, and evaluates curriculum and provides experiences for candidates to acquire and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions necessary to help all students learn. Assessments indicate that candidates can demonstrate and apply proficiencies related to diversity. Experiences provided for candidates include working with diverse populations, including higher education and P–12 school faculty, candidates, and students in P–12 schools
Description of how each department and program includes curriculum components and experiences that address diversity proficiencies (September 16, 2011) Assessment instruments, scoring guides, and data related to candidates meeting diversity proficiencies, including impact on student learning (TCPP?)
