Pedagogy and assessment are critical aspects of classroom teaching at all educational levels. Although training in these areas is often a primary focus of university programs preparing pre-service teachers, it is not necessarily part of the training for university faculty. Using survey methodology, this descriptive study investigated the pedagogical and assessment strategies used by teacher education faculty in two universities in one state system, as well as their opinions related to the effectiveness of these strategies. Results indicated that teacher education faculty most frequently use the pedagogical strategies rated as "somewhat effective" to "highly effective", but routinely used assessment strategies that they rated lower on effectiveness.
