Invitation to Comment on Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)
The Educator Preparation Program (EPP) at Muskingum University is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) on October 1 – 3, 2017. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the visiting team. Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the party's relationship to the EPP (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates).
Testimony is to be sent to:
1140 19th Street NW, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036
Or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Comments must be related to the past three years and are to be based on the core tenets of CAEP accreditation standards of excellence, that recognize:
• In CAEP's performance-based system, accreditation is based on evidence that demonstrates that teacher candidates know the subject matter and can teach it effectively so that students learn. In the CAEP system, units must prove that candidates can connect theory to practice and be effective in an actual P-12 classroom.
• A professional education unit that is accredited by CAEP is expected to be involved in ongoing planning and evaluation; engaged in continuous assessment and development; ensure that faculty and programs reflect new knowledge, practice, and technologies; and be involved in continuous development in response to the evolving world of education and educational reform.
Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to Muskingum University for comment prior to the site visit. No anonymous testimony will be considered.
Letters of comment need to be received at CAEP no later than July 1, 2017.
