Educator Preparation Program Evaluation
Each year CCSAR conducts an evaluation of the SCSU Educator Preparation Program. Our broad-based approach incorporates a variety of research and performance-based assessment instruments to assess and measure the overall quality and effectiveness of this program.
spa reports for ncate review
Specialized professional associations (SPA's) set professional standards and assessment measures to assess the quality of teacher preparation programs offered by an institution. Institutions are required to submit their programs for review by SPAs as part of the NCATE accreditation process. CCSAR staff assisted in the analysis, interpretation, and reporting of pertinent data for SCSU's School of Education SPA reports.
