A Survey of AASCU Institutions: Compliance with Selected NCATE Standards at the Advanced Level.
Sparapani, Ervin; Nelson, David
This report presents the results of a survey of advanced programs in teacher education at member institutions of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU). It is the opinion of researchers that several of the NCATE criteria apply more appropriately to basic programs than to advanced, especially in the categories related to the world of practice, students, and faculty. The purpose of the research, therefore, is to assess AASCU institutions' compliance with selected NCATE criteria in categories II, III, and IV (World of Practice, Students, and Faculty) which relate to: (1) relationships with graduates, (2) admission, (3) monitoring progress, (4) completion of the program, (5) faculty qualifications and assignments, and (6) faculty load. Results show, primarily, that few institutions (10 percent) have first-year assistance programs in place at the master's level, many institutions (22 percent) do nothing at the master's level to attract minority candidates, and institutions with student populations of less than 10,000 appear to have a serious faculty load problem.
