Content and Pedagogical Knowledge

Assessments are used for the College's continuous improvement efforts and as data for its reaccreditation plan for Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Collected data are analyzed on an ongoing basis to improve course experiences and programs. Key assessments have been designed so that the related processes and products serve as evidence of candidates' effective professional growth in knowledge, performance, and dispositions across programs. Candidate progress and achievement on these key assessments provide opportunities for instructors to confirm candidate progress and intervene for additional support as needed. Some courses serve as data collection points in the initial certification program area, and in those courses, the assessment description and rubric are available to students at the start of the semester in either the syllabus or the course's Canvas shell.
