SECTION I - CONTEXT
1. Description of any state or institutional policies that may influence the application of NCTM standards. (Response limited to
4,000 characters INCLUDING SPACES)
Edinboro University of Pennsylvania is an NCATE accredited Master’s Level I Comprehensive institution with approximately 8,000
students, 2,200 of which are enrolled in graduate and undergraduate programs in the preparation of school personnel. There are no
institutional impediments to the acquisition of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) recognition. In fact, the pursuit of
accreditation at every level is a specific component of Edinboro University’s strategic plan. Resources allocated to the NCATE Unit are
more than adequate to support the accreditation process.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education completed a major five-year site visit in April 2004, which resulted in the re-accreditations of all
certification programs, including Secondary Education- Mathematics. Pennsylvania is an NCATE partner state with program standards that
are closely aligned with the standards of specialized professional associations, including the NCTM.
2. Description of the field and clinical experiences required for the program, including the number of hours for early field
experiences and the number of hours/weeks for student teaching or internships. (Response limited to 8,000 characters INCLUDING
SPACES)
EU initial math certification candidates complete four stages of field experiences. Reflecting PDE guidelines, the SOE established four
stages of field ranging from observations to full clinical practice. Initial certificate candidates participate in a variety of observations and
exploratory activities in Stage 1 and 2 field experiences, all requiring reflective practice. Classroom observations, tutoring, community
events, and school board meetings are just a few examples of the opportunities provided through partnerships with local schools and
agencies. Specifically, all candidates are required to complete SEDU 271 Multiculturalism in American Schools which includes virtual and
on-site observations particularly focused on best practices for ELL instruction. Additionally, SPED 210, a special education course on
adaptations and accommodations and a course required to obtain candidacy, candidates again are involved in observations of and activities
within classrooms focused on students with special needs.
In Stage 3 field experiences, the teacher candidates continue to apply and reflect on their content, professional and pedagogical knowledge,
skills, and professional dispositions. Teacher candidates and interns complete coursework focused on pedagogy in conjunction with extended
field experiences in schools. Stage 3 field for Math candidates occurs during the “professional education block.” The following courses listed
below are identified as “the Block.” Students may not register for these courseswithout formally obtaining candidacy.
SEDU 471 Instructional Techniques for Math
SEDU 306 Teaching Reading in the Subject Area
SEDU 381 Measurement and Evaluation in the Middle and Secondary School
SPED 370 Adaptive & Accommodations in the Inclusive Classroom.
SEDU 475 Secondary Education Field Experience
These courses are typically taken in this major during the second semester of the junior year or the first semester of the senior year,
following the completion of at least 18 semester hours in the student's field of specialization. The four classroom courses are taken
intensively during the first nine weeks of the semester followed by SEDU 475 Secondary Education Field Experience for the remainder of
the semester (six weeks). SEDU 475 Secondary Education Field Experience, the second field experience, provides secondary education
majors with a pre-student teaching field experience with cooperating teachers in the public schools. Students teach a minimum of eight fullperiod lessons, preferably from the unit plan prepared during Secondary Education Block, and complete various professional development
activities.
Prior to the capstone experience, all initial certification students must successfully complete state mandated licensure exams. Then, in the
Stage 4 experience, the candidate is fully integrated into the school program and into teaching practice. SEDU 495, Student Teaching, is
coordinated by the Office of Certification and Student Teaching and is supervised by content-specific University faculty in the Department of
Elementary, Middle and Secondary Education. This experience provides opportunities to display competency in middle and secondary
schools under the direct, daily supervision of a “highly qualified” cooperating teacher, as defined by PDE. The experience is a semester in
length. In order to be eligible for student teaching, students must:
• maintain a 2.8 QPA,
• have earned 96 semester hours
• have taken and passed the Praxis II exam
• completed with a grade of C or better all of the Secondary Education Block
Selection of the sites is made with the purpose of providing students with the opportunities to experience urban/rural/suburban and
middle/high school settings.
3. Please attach files to describe a program of study that outlines the courses and experiences required for candidates to complete
the program. The program of study must include course titles. (This information may be provided as an attachment from the college
catalog or as a student advisement sheet.)

4. This system will not permit you to include tables or graphics in text fields. Therefore any tables or charts must be attached as
files here. The title of the file should clearly indicate the content of the file. Word documents, pdf files, and other commonly used file
formats are acceptable.

See Attachments panel below.
5. Candidate Information
Directions: Provide three years of data on candidates enrolled in the program and completing the program, beginning with the most
recent academic year for which numbers have been tabulated. Report the data separately for the levels/tracks (e.g., baccalaureate,
post-baccalaureate, alternate routes, master's, doctorate) being addressed in this report. Data must also be reported separately for
programs offered at multiple sites. Update academic years (column 1) as appropriate for your data span. Create additional tables as
necessary.

SECTION IV - EVIDENCE FOR MEETING STANDARDS
DIRECTIONS: For assessments that are listed in Section II as Not Substantially Changed since the previous submission:
1. Upload a current copy of the assessment and scoring guide (to ensure that reviewers are using the correct versions) and
2. Provide current data on all assessments.
For assessments that are listed in Section II as New or Substantially Changed since the previous submission:
The 6 – 8 key assessments listed in Section II as New or Substantially Changed must be documented and discussed in Section IV. Taken
as a whole, the assessments must demonstrate candidate mastery of the SPA standards. The key assessments should be required of all
candidates. Assessments and scoring guides and data charts should be aligned with the SPA standards. This means that the concepts in the
SPA standards should be apparent in the assessments and in the scoring guides to the same depth, breadth, and specificity as in the SPA
standards. Data tables should also be aligned with the SPA standards. The data should be presented, in general, at the same level it is
collected. For example, if a rubric collects data on 10 elements [each relating to specific SPA standard(s)], then the data chart should
report the data on each of the elements rather that reporting a cumulative score..
In the description of each assessment listed in Section II as New or Substatially Changed below, the SPA has identified potential
assessments that would be appropriate. Assessments have been organized into the following three areas to be aligned with the elements in
NCATE’s unit standard 1:
• Content knowledge (Assessments 1 and 2)
• Pedagogical and professional knowledge, skills and dispositions (Assessments 3 and 4)
• Focus on student learning (Assessment 5)
Note that in some disciplines, content knowledge may include or be inextricable from professional knowledge. If this is the case,
assessments that combine content and professional knowledge may be considered "content knowledge" assessments for the purpose of this
report.
For each assessment listed in Section II as New or Substatially Changed, the compiler should prepare one document that includes the
following items:
(1) A two-page narrative that includes the following:
a. A brief description of the assessment and its use in the program (one sentence may be sufficient);
b. A description of how this assessment specifically aligns with the standards it is cited for in Section III. Cite SPA standards by number,
title, and/or standard wording.
c. A brief analysis of the data findings;
d. An interpretation of how that data provides evidence for meeting standards, indicating the specific SPA standards by number, title,
and/or standard wording;
and
(2) Assessment Documentation
e. The assessment tool itself or a rich description of the assessment (often the directions given to candidates);
f. The scoring guide for the assessment; and
g. Charts that provide candidate data derived from the assessment.
The responses for e, f, and g (above) should be limited to the equivalent of five text pages each , however in some cases assessment
instruments or scoring guides may go beyond five pages.
Note: As much as possible, combine all of the files for one assessment into a single file. That is, create one file for Assessment #4 that
includes the two-page narrative (items a – d above), the assessment itself (item e above), the scoring guide (item f above, and the data
chart (item g above). Each attachment should be no larger than 2 mb. Do not include candidate work or syllabi. There is a limit of 20
attachments for the entire report so it is crucial that you combine files as much as possible.
1. State licensure tests or professional examinations of content knowledge. NCTM standards addressed in this entry could include
all of the standards 1-7 and 9-15. If your state does not require licensure tests or professional examinations in the content area, data
from another assessment must be presented to document candidate attainment of content knowledge. (Assessment Required)
Provide assessment information (items 1-5) as outlined in the directions for Section IV
Praxis II Math Content Knowledge
See Attachments panel below.
2. Assessment of content knowledge in mathematics. NCTM standards addressed in this entry could include but are not limited to
Standards 1-7 and 9-15. Examples of assessments include comprehensive examinations, GPAs or grades, and portfolio tasks(13). For
post-baccalaureate teacher preparation, include an assessment used to determine that candidates have adequate content backgroud in
the subject to be taught.(Assessment Required)
Provide assessment information (items 1-5) as outlined in the directions for Section IV
Math Course Grades Spring 2012 Fall 2012
See Attachments panel below.
(14) For program review purposes, there are two ways to list a portfolio as an assessment. In some programs a portfolio is considered a single assessment and
scoring criteria (usually rubrics) have been developed for the contents of the portfolio as a whole. In this instance, the portfolio would be considered a single assessment.
However, in many programs a portfolio is a collection of candidate work—and the artifacts included
3. Assessment that demonstrates candidates can effectively plan classroom-based instruction. NCTM standards that could be
addressed in this assessment include but are not limited to Standard 8. Examples of assessments inculde the evaluation of candidates'
abilities to develop leasson or unit plans, individualized educational plans, needs assessments, or intervention plans. (Assessment
Required)
Provide assessment information (items 1-5) as outlined in the directions for Section IV
4. Assessment that demonstrates candidates' knowledge, skills, and dispositions are applied effectively in practice. NCTM
standards that could be addressed in this assessment include but are not limited to standard 8. An assessment instrument used in
student teaching or an internship should be submitted. (Assessment Required)
Provide assessment information (items 1-5) as outlined in the directions for Section IV
5. Assessment that demonstrates candidate effects on student learning. NCTM standards that could be addressed in this
assessment include but are not limited to Standard 8. Examples of assessments include those based on student work samples, portfolio
tasks, case studies, follow-up studies, and employer surveys. (Assessment Required)
Provide assessment information (items 1-5) as outlined in the directions for Section IV
6. Additional assessment that addresses NCTM standards. Examples of assessments include evaluations of field experiences, case
studies, portfolio tasks, licensure tests not reported in #1, and follow-up studies. (Assessment Required)
Provide assessment information (items 1-5) as outlined in the directions for Section IV
7. Additional assessment that addresses NCTM standards. Examples of assessments include evaluations of field experiences, case
studies, portfolio tasks, licensure tests not reported in #1, and follow-up studies. (Optional)

SECTION V - USE OF ASSESSMENT RESULTS TO IMPROVE PROGRAM
1. Evidence must be presented in this section that assessment results have been analyzed and have been or will be used to improve
candidate performance and strengthen the program. This description should not link improvements to individual assessments but,
rather, it should summarize principal findings from the evidence, the faculty's interpretation of those findings, and changes made in
(or planned for) the program as a result. Describe the steps program faculty has taken to use information from assessments for
improvement of both candidate performance and the program. This information should be organized around (1) content knowledge,
(2) professional and pedagogical knowledge, skill, and dispositions, and (3) student learning. In addition, for each assessment listed in
Section II, describe why or why not the assessment has been changed since the program was submitted previously.
(Response limited to 24,000 characters INCLUDING SPACES)
Results from the assessments suggest that the students in the Edinboro University of Pennsylvania Middle and Secondary Education
programs are attaining required content knowledge, professional and pedagogical knowledge, skills, and dispositions and that they are
having a positive effect on student learning and on creating environments that support student learning. However, improvements continue to
be made to ensure that a quality program is offered.
First, faculty from the mathematics department and education department continue to collaborate on course content. After the most recent
review, particular attention was paid to the course descriptions as they compare to the course content, activities, and assessments. It was
noted by faculty in both departments that the course descriptions were not entirely reflective of the course, particularly in the areas of
technological tools and historical perspectives. As a result, the course descriptions were revised so that they more accurately reflect the
course content.
Second, the faculty in the education department have collaborated on and sought out ways to increase the field experiences for our
candidates, so that all candidates have rich experiences in both middle and secondary schools. Candidates now participate in virtual
observations of 7-12 classrooms as part of Stage 1 field and in four separate middle school based classroom experiences as part of Stage 2
field. Stage 3 Field Experience and Stage 4 Student Teaching continue to be a vital part of the program. Specific, detailed information
regarding the candidates’ experiences in the four stages of field can be found in the attached document.
SECTION VI - FOR REVISED REPORTS OR RESPONSE TO CONDITIONS REPORTS ONLY
1. For Revised Reports: Describe what changes or additions have been made to address the standards that were not met in the
original submission. Provide new responses to questions and/or new documents to verify the changes described in this section. Specific
instructions for preparing a Revised Report are available on the NCATE web site at
http://www.ncate.org/Accreditation/ProgramReview/ProgramReportSubmission/RevisedProgramReports/tabid/453/Default.aspx
For Response to Conditions Reports: Describe what changes or additions have been made to address the conditions cited in the
original recognition report. Provide new responses to questions and/or new documents to verify the changes described in this section.
Specific instructions for preparing a Response to Conditions Report are available on the NCATE web site at
http://www.ncate.org/Accreditation/ProgramReview/ProgramReportSubmission/ResponsetoConditionsReport/tabid/454/Default.aspx
(Response limited to 24,000 characters. INCLUDING SPACES)
•Three cycles of data of the state licensure exam have been submitted. This information was inadvertently left out of the previous
submission. Results show that our candidates have a 100% pass rate on the state licensure exam.
•Many of the indicators that we did not meet deal with the use of technological tools and the historical perspectives of the content. Faculty
from the mathematics department and education department carefully reviewed the course descriptions and course content. It was
determined that the course descriptions were not completely representative of the course content. Course descriptions have been revised so
that they more accurately reflect the content of the courses, specifically with respect to the use of technological tools and historical
perspectives. Revised course descriptions and course grades have been submitted for review.
•We have attached a document that shows how our program meets indicator 16.1. Throughout the four stages of field, all of our candidates
participate in virtual observations in Stage 1 field, and in four separate middle school based opportunities as part of Stage 2 field. During
stage 3 field, the candidates conduct a series of observations and an 8-week placement in grades 7-12. These opportunities allow them to
observe and participate in both middle and secondary classrooms under the supervision of experienced and highly qualified teachers prior to
student teaching.
