Using NCATE 2000 Standards as State Accreditation Standards: A Beginner's and a Veteran's Approach to Accountability.
Bennett, J. Phillip; Gage, Martha S.; Craven, Lonnie; Morrison, Gail
This paper discusses how the 2000 standards of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) can be used in state accreditation standards to promote accountability. It describes standards 1 and 2: candidate knowledge, skills, and dispositions and assessment system and unit evaluation, then presents a few examples of non-test evidences of teacher competencies, which include performance of candidates in field experiences, candidate work, student learning, follow-up of studies of graduates, and relationship to the conceptual work. It also presents a more extensive list of expectations and requirements for South Carolina, Kansas, and NCATE. Finally, the paper focuses on how the use of NCATE standards take test scores into account for accreditation decisions; whether NCATE standards can be fairly applied to all types of institutions, public and private; and what protocol issues need to be considered to ensure the appropriate involvement of all stakeholders, focusing on Kansas and South Carolina.
