Minutes - Ms. Winstead reviewed the minutes of the 1-10-06
meeting (formal complaint process, Action Plan and change of Gate
to Portal) and asked for any corrections or additions. No
adjustments were noted and the minutes were approved.
Update from Steering Committee Questions raised: How are
we using the data? There is a procedure in place but appears to
be a lack of follow-up. NCATE is not a choice it is required by
the State to accredit a program. The next development activity
will be a workshop in March or April on Reflection. We as faculty
need to understand and decide how we want the students to do
Action Plan Review The action plan was reviewed for time
frames and completion dates.
Individual Task Assignments
Student Complaints and Graphics Winstead A draft
Student Formal Complaint was discussed and decided that Flo will
bring it before the DAC. The committee decided that data should
be gathered yearly and looked at for issues. The term Gate was
changed to Portal and the Management Plan was moved to Portal 3.
Discussion followed about encouraging Secondary majors to take
EPSY 315 earlier in their programs. Field Experience and
Professional Development hours (5-10-10) were added to the portals
2, 3, and 4. In Portal 3 the capstone methods course is different
for each program and should be noted in the handbook. In the
capstone course candidates will do a lesson plan, assessment plan
and 1 LCET evaluations.
Use of Data - Trowbridge A chart was presented,
discussed and suggestions made. The chart was adapted from McNeese
chart. It is a working living document that can be used to
aggragate data. There is a lot of data being gathered but not
used as efficiently as could be. Need to work more closely with
other standards. Example: Diversity to ensure data is collected
or a candidate can be referred to the SARTE committee. Flo will
work on this. This chart will need to include and be approved by
Council for Teacher Education, Dean, Department heads, University
Curriculum Committee before catalog changes can occur.
Initial (MAT) Yates It has been started but is
T/L Advanced Edwards Absent due to illness no
EDL Advanced Devaney/Hancock
noted that he had called ACEI to obtain an example SPA report but
has not received it yet.
Task Assignments Deadlines Each academic year we must
prepare a report of what has been done during that year. The
committee agreed that Tasks 2, 3, 4, and 5 are on-going and will
need to be updated and/or revised each year.
Next Steps A draft of program narratives should be
completed by March 14. This will be a working draft and will be
put together as one document for the April meeting. The capstone
methods experience courses in the new curriculum need to be
identified (Elem Methods = 415 and Health Studies = 4??). MAT 670
is the capstone course for the MAT program
Adjourned at 3:33 pm.
