Basic Assessment Cycle within our EPP
Plan and Prepare
- Develop objectives, learning outcomes, alignment to standards (State, national, In TASC and CAEP)

- Do we have All CAEP data? How many cycles?
Assess – Multiple Measures
Collect, Analyze, Share
Collect and analyze direct evidence of candidate progress from Entrance to exit and monitor their progress through task stream.
- Program level assessments
- Unit wide assessments
- SPA/state reports
- Collect and analyze indirect evidence, such as job placement rates, surveys, title II reports, grades, enrollment, retention, completion, and case studies for program impact.
- Share assessment processes and results with stake holders.
Improve / Reflect
- Use what we have learned from assessment processes and efforts to revise programmatic changes/revisions and unit wide improvements.
- Program Review days each semester for EPP, with stakeholders on some days.
- Share data with COPEP, School Administrators, P-12 educators, Alumni, Advisory boards and conduct focus group as necessary with completers and principals.
- Consider the effect of revision/improvements in student learning that resulted from your assessment process.
