Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness
Teacher candidates are supervised during their student teaching experiences by a University Supervisor and a Cooperating Teacher. The University Supervisor completes an assessment of the candidates performance in the classroom 4 times during his or her student teaching experience. The Cooperating Teacher also completes a mid-term and summative evaluation of each candidate. This assessment is based on the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) standards. Scores for candidates in the last two academic years are posted here (clinical experience).
In person interviews were conducted with completers from the last two cohorts. In general, program completers reviewed the program as highly effective in preparing them for the field. Program completers also suggested extending supports in lesson planning and classroom management. A majority of recent completers have accepted jobs in urban settings such as the New York City area.
