|Unit Assessment Systems Executive Summary|
|Summative Decision Point Assessments|
Recognizing the importance of an organized and ongoing assessment of candidate achievement and program improvement, the School of Education has developed a unit assessment system. Knowledge, skills, and dispositions expected of candidates have been identified and are assessed at certain decision points in each program. Assessment allows the School of Education to make improvements in program structures, course content, and pedagogy. This assessment system also provides candidates with periodic indications of their performance relative to standards and allows the School of Education to evaluate their competencies.
