A Guide to Preparing Reports Responding to Standards and Criteria Used to Approve Illinois Teacher Education Institutions and Programs.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
The 12 standards used to approve Illinois teacher education institutions are discussed in this guide. These standards represent duly filed rules and regulations under which the state superintendent of education, in consultation with the state teacher certification board, meet the statutory responsibility to recognize teacher education institutions. It is noted that the standards fall into two broad categories; (1) Standards 1-4, 11, and 12 determine the adequacy of the institution's commitments to teach education and the general results of these commitments; and (2) standards 5-10 test the institution's capacity to conduct programs in a fashion that ensures equitable and fair treatment of applicants and candidates. Eleven criteria used to approve Illinois teacher education programs are also outlined, and descriptions of the rationales and intent of each criterion are provided. Suggestions are made on kinds of evidence institutions should present to demonstrate that a program complies with each criterion. A chart is included summarizing the meaning of the criteria and displaying their interrelationships. (JD)
