Assessment and Accreditation

UNCP Teacher Education Program Reports and Surveys

Introduction

The UNCP Teacher Education Program (TEP) has developed an assessment system for our teacher education program. Assessment activities are conducted to provide the UNCP TEP with information needed so that we can improve our programs and prepare committed, collaborative and competent professional educators.

The UNCP TEP uses Taskstream (now known as Watermark) as an ePortfolio for candidates enrolled in our program. This ePortfolio system is designed as a place for students to display artifacts that are evaluated by faculty and demonstrate that the candidates have achieved the necessary knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become a successful teacher. Below is a table that outlines the basic structure for undergraduate ePortfolios. Advanced licensure, MAT, and School Administration licensure ePortfolios are arranged differently.

Standards

Below are a series of links to show teacher candidates the standards that are used to assess teacher candidates’ knowledge, skills, and dispositions.
