SAMPLE of Major Field Assessment:

MEd Special Education, January 2008

 

Major Field Assessment

MED Special Education Mild/Moderate Disabilities and Elementary Education Report of Results and Use

January 2008

A review of the Major Field Assessment goals, outcomes and assessment procedures resulted in the following data collected from the LA Department of Education LATAAP results, PRAXIS scores, grade transcripts, advising notes, method’s evaluation forms, student teaching evaluation forms, exit surveys of graduates, student interviews, portfolios, field placement data, and professional development data.

Based on collected data, Goal 1, Outcome 1 was successfully met with over 80% of the students rating their programs as satisfactory and over 90% of students maintained “good standing” status in the Master’s degree program for special education. Likewise, the assessment criteria for Outcome 2, 3, 4, and 5 were met. Candidates rated their preparation programs as satisfactory or better, over 80% of graduates passed the comprehensive exam, over 80% of the graduate students indicated that they were satisfactorily prepared in specific competencies on the exit questionnaire.

Based on collected data, the assessment criteria for Goal 2 were met. Students felt the program fostered an understanding of the unique needs of individuals with disabilities and their families. Goal 3 was also met with 100% of the graduate students reporting that they participated in at least 2 professional organizations or activities during their degree program.

The faculty in the special education program meets at least once each month to discuss courses, prerequisites, and program effectiveness based on collected data. All course objectives have been aligned to state and national standards and are indicated on

course syllabi. Faculty also had the opportunity to use collected data in writing CEC spa reports for NCATE accreditation. The special education program used data collected from the major field assessment goals and outcomes in the redesign of the MED in Special Education that was mandated by the Louisiana Department of Education. The new program began admitting students in the Fall 2007.
