Standard 2: Assessment, System, & Unit Evaluation
In this section we present evidence that the Unit has an assessment system that collects and analyzes data on teacher candidate qualifications, candidate performance and unit operations to evaluate and improve the unit and its programs.
Millikin University’s Conceptual Framework reflects our expectations for the implementation of this assessment system. We have developed our assessment system collaboratively with our professional community. Our system includes a variety of evaluation measures. These comprehensive measures not only monitor candidates, but also assist us in managing and improving our programs. Our assessment system demonstrates a continual cycle of evaluation of candidate’s performance and unit operations so that we can assure fairness, accuracy and consistency. These assessment practices are understood and carried out by our learning community. (NCATE Professional Standards 2002 Edition)
