Creating Meaningful Accountability through Web-Based Electronic NCATE Exhibits.
Salzman, Stephanie; Zimmerly, Chuck
This paper presents the proactive steps taken by Idaho State University to address accountability in teacher education. The university addressed accountability mandates and new accreditation standards through a Web site ( that includes electronic documents providing evidence of meeting National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) 2000 and state standards. Through this Web site, the college makes visible the quality of its candidates, the richness of its educator preparation program, and its methods for assessing and documenting candidate performance relative to national, state, and institutional standards. Major aspects of the college's use of technology to support accreditation include: creating an infrastructure to ensure adequate expertise and resources; developing electronic exhibits; organizing accreditation events; aligning standards, program components, and assessments; collecting, analyzing, and storing data; and reporting assessment results for program improvement and accountability. Attached are a guide to the electronic exhibits and an index of electronic evidence. (SM)
