Standard 3 Addendum

Standard 3: Field Experiences and Clinical Practice

The unit and its school partners design, implement, and evaluate field experiences and clinical practice so that teacher candidates and other school professionals develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions necessary to help all students learn.

3.3  Evidence for the BOE Team to validate during the onsite visit

1) Can the unit clarify criteria for the selection of clinical faculty for both initial and advanced programs?

The criteria for the selection of clinical faculty include a minimum of five years of teaching experience, a masters degree or equivalent in the field of education, and appropriate licensure for the position. To be considered for an interview, clinical faculty must meet minimum requirements and have a complete application on file that includes transcripts, a resume, and letters of recommendation. Exhibit A.3.1 Clinical Supervisor Qualifications lists the qualifications and responsibilities of clinical supervisors.

2. What documentation can the unit provide on the collaborative process between unit and P-12 schools?   

One specific example that highlights the process of collaboration was the development of a Classroom Environment Survey for initial program candidates to provide feedback about the quality of their field experience placements. The instrument was developed with school partners including School of Education advisory board members and local teacher union representatives. Exhibit A.3.2 Collaboration Process Example shows evidence of this process, including one advisory board agenda, feedback gathered from advisory board members, and the revised survey.

 3. Can the unit provide scoring guides used for and data collected from field experiences?

Yes, scoring guides and data for field experiences can be provided during the visit. The field experiences chart (below) will assist with finding field data for each program.
