Using Benchmarks To Meet NCATE Challenges: An Action Plan for Success on NCATE.
Garber, Darrell H.
This paper explains that the old NCATE standards had five themes which survive in various forms in NCATE 2000. The conceptual framework and themes of diversity and technology continue to be heavily emphasized. Elements of the conceptual framework include shared vision, coherence, professional commitments/dispositions, commitments to diversity technology, and alignment with professional and state standards. New themes include continuous assessment of candidate proficiency, collaboration with PK-12 and arts and science faculty, and candidate expectations aligned with professional, state, and institutional expectations. The six new standards are: candidate knowledge, skills, and dispositions; assessment system and unit evaluation; field experiences and clinical practice; diversity; faculty qualifications, performance, and development; and unit governance and resources. This paper presents benchmarks for NCATE 2000 which can be used to assess one's position in relation to the goal. It also includes a schedule template for the NCATE Board of Examiners. (SM)
