Report to the Utah State Board of Education on the Teacher Education Programs at Utah State University.
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
The process of evaluation of all teacher education programs in Utah includes a visit to each state institution at least once every five years. During the approval visit, each teacher education program leading to certification is evaluated according to the Standards for State Approval of Teacher Education developed by the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC). On November 9-11, 1981, a group of professional personnel directed by and under the leadership of the Utah State Office of Education visited the campus of Utah State University (USU). The results of that evaluation are reported in this document. Commendations and recommendations are given for elements of the USU teacher education program: (1) organization and administration of teacher education; (2) curriculum principles and standards for basic programs; (3) early childhood education; (4) elementary education; (5) secondary education professional components; and (6) post baccalaureate and graduate programs.
