NCATE Standard II Meeting Minutes

Members in Attendance: Flo Winstead, John
Trowbridge, Camille Yates, Tom DeVaney, Jason Hancock, and Cheryl
The November minutes were accepted as written
by the committee.
The meeting agenda is attached to this
Agenda Item #3: Ms. Winstead related feedback
from Dr. Jacob (Department of Teaching and Learning) and Michelle
Hall (Office of Institutional Research) in response to the
question from the NCATE Standard II committee about the narrative
for the assessment system and unit evaluation. This is in regard
to: (1) how records of formal candidate complaints and resolutions
are maintained, (2) how data is used to improve the program, and
(3) the major field assessment plan (Attachment).
Agenda Item #4: Action Plan for the NCATE
Steering Committees (2005-2006) (Attachment)
We have to provide evidence that we have met
at least “acceptable” on each of the three items/columns
- Assessment System
The new Conceptual Framework should be
promoted among faculty and students. Professional standards are
identified as SPAs. The points at which the key
assessments/measures are identified are in portals. We need to
translate the chart to narratives.
- Data Collection, Analysis, and Evaluation
We need to pull out sections of the main
chart to include in various parts of this section.
- Use of Data for Program Improvement
Dr. Yates suggested that we use the questions
as a framework for writing narratives. We need to make sure these
align with “acceptable” status from NCATE. She also suggested
creating a flowchart or other graphic to clarify the process.
Committee members in attendance will create a
narrative on each of the three sections. The committee decided to
review documents against NCATE requirements and be ready to
write/revise narratives at the next meeting on January 10. These
will be given to Ms. Winstead for collection into one report.
The term “portal” rather than “gate” was
selected for use in all documents and reports.
The next meeting is Tuesday, January 10, 2006
from 2:00-4:00 PM in Room TEC 2013.
