I Some Background:Education in the Spotlight • National call for higher standards and accountability • Top item on Indiana legislature’s and governor’s agendas right now • Focus on teacher and student performance • test scores: SAT, ACT, NAEP, ISTEP • driver’s licenses tied to staying in school • Block 4, Charter Schools, vouchers, portfolios • Shift away from assuming competence based on credits and knowledge alone

  5. I What’s NCATE? & “NCATE State”? • NCATE = National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education • Composed of representatives from many professional organizations • Main accrediting organization for teacher education programs nationwide • Indiana is one of many “NCATE States” • State accreditation standards are identical to NCATE accreditation standards • Teacher education programs in Indiana must meet these standards--not voluntary

  6. I NCATE Standards(Categories) • ConceptualFramework ~ model, mission, philosophical base • KnowledgeBase ~ liberal arts core, specific teaching subject areas, developmental & pedagogical knowledge • Students ~ admission, assessment, diversity • Faculty~ qualifications, loads, diversity • Governance ~ decision-making, autonomy, administrative support • Resources ~ finances, library, technology

  7. II NCATE and the IPSB are using the INTASC Principles and Standards in new accreditation evaluations!
