Standard 1: Knowledge, Skills, & Dispositions
In this section we present evidence that candidates in our B.S./B.A./B.M. initial teacher preparation programs meet professional, state, and institutional standards for content knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge and skills, pedagogical and professional knowledge and skills, and professional dispositions necessary to help all students learn.
Millikin's conceptual framework reflects our expectations for the development of this knowledge and of these skills and dispositions, expectations which are assessed through candidate assessments and program assessments. The primary sources of evidence used to demonstrate candidate learning of these knowledge, skills, and dispositions include: state content area examinations; grade point average in the candidate's major; evaluations of student teaching; course syllabi in the content areas; and surveys of school faculty.
The evidence demonstrates that our candidates meet NCATE standard 1.
