These guidelines for physical education accreditation were field tested and modified to meet new National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards. The purpose of the first section of this guidebook is to provide specific process and content information regarding the history of the project, an overview of the guidelines, the curriculum portfolio, the NCATE reader, the adjudication committee, and a synopsis of the evaluation process from submittal to approval. The guidelines for the undergraduate preparation of teachers of physical education are included in chapter one. In-depth coverage is provided to the curriculum portfolio in chapter two. Chapter three presents recommended guidelines for faculty, students, resources and facilities, and evaluation. Chapter four defines and describes the role of the Physical Education Reader in the NCATE accreditation process. Chapter five outlines procedures to be followed for adjudicating and scoring the portfolio by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education adjudication Committee. In the second section, standards are outlined for master's and doctoral degree programs. The final section presents matrices that are used to describe the requirements of the programs that comply with the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance guidelines.
