Annual Goals

This report lists the annual improvement goals reported to ESE in the educator preparation program provider’s state annual report. Providers may report up to three goals for the upcoming year and are asked to report on progress made toward the prior year’s goals. Annual goals are reported in May of the academic year listed.

Annual Goals - 2018
Goal #1 Launch and implement partnership at the graduate level in summer 2018. Develop other partnerships with school districts and community organizations in order to extend opportunities for students across the Education Dept.
Goal #2 Infuse more data-driven decisions based on information found in a variety of state sponsored and college data platforms.
Goal #3 Implement the use of on-line CAP platform in order to increase tracking and record-keeping for field placement across graduate and undergraduate teacher preparation programs. Full implementation for spring 2019.

Annual Goals - 2017
Goal #1 Provide additional calibration training for program supervisors and supervising practitioners working with candidates in pre-practicum and practicum experiences.
Goal #2 Develop stronger articulations with field partners to ensure candidates have the pedagogical experiences that align with current coursework.
Goal #3 Continue to assess the alignment of the double major, general education and education curriculums. Work towards finalizing credit structure and content alignment in order to best meet SMKs.

Progress Toward Goals - 2017
Goal #1 Twelve program supervisors, supervising practitioners and faculty members participated in DESE sponsored calibration training during fall 17 and spring 18. We are planning more training opportunities for supervisors and supervising practitioners both on-line and in person.
Goal #2 Working on developing documentation of pre-practicum expectations and guidelines for field partners to clearly describe expected benchmarks and outcomes related to coursework and pedagogical skills.
Goal #3 Undergraduate licensure programs in MOD, ECED and ELEM have been moving towards removing double major in order to more closely align education, arts and sciences and subject matter coursework to the PST's and SMK's. Revisions to these majors are underway at this time, and should be implemented for current freshman and sophomore students, as well as incoming freshman.
