“Candidates learn to develop and teach lessons that incorporate diversity and develop a classroom and school climate that values diversity. Candidates become aware of different teaching and learning styles shaped by cultural influences and are able to adapt instruction and services appropriately for all students, including students with exceptionalities.
Assessments of candidate proficiencies provide data on the ability to help all students learn. Candidates’ assessment data are used to provide feedback to candidates for improving their knowledge, skills, and dispositions.”

They should be available on line or during the visit and you might want to consider coding them for ease of identification of diversity (and technology) integration.
“Candidates interact in classroom settings on campus
and in schools with professional education faculty,
faculty from other units, and school faculty from diverse
ethnic, racial, and gender groups.”
