Salem-Teikyo University Education Department Assessment Plan (Pilot) 1992-1993.
McAllister, Gary S.
The Education Department of Salem-Teikyo University (West Virginia) was chosen to develop a pilot assessment plan as part of the overall Institutional Student Outcomes Assessment Plan. The plan delineated in this paper includes the following criteria: (1) students majoring in education may enroll in the teacher education program to earn elementary or secondary certification after completing the stated requirements for their specialization; (2) prior to full admission to the program, students are required to achieve a passing score on a group of tests designed to ensure that they possess an acceptable level of basic skills in the areas of reading, writing and mathematics; and (3) each prospective student teacher must also achieve a passing score on a criterion-referenced examination developed by the West Virginia Board of Education in each proposed area of certification. Extensive addenda provide teacher education certification areas, preliminary and final screening forms, descriptions of teacher education program laboratory and field experiences, descriptions, the field experience handbook for the introductory education course, brochures, information on the West Virginia Educational Personnel Preparation Testing Program, a sample placement file, follow-up forms for graduates and employers, a hierarchy of teacher education program objectives and a student outcomes assessment model.
