Ms. Winstead asked if there were any changes
that need to be made. Devaney noted that some is unclear. We need
to add to the Dept. of Ed. Leadership & Technology and the Dept.
of Counseling. The committee decided to create two pages:
- advanced degrees (3 departments)
- initial degrees (undergrad and MAT)
Draft reports by Yates (UG & MAT narratives)
& Edwards (G & T/L narratives):
The committee members were asked to review
the documents and respond with any changes needed.
The topic of adding a Portal 10 was tabled to
revisit next academic year.
“Major Field” Assessment
ŕ This should not be
placed in the unit assessment, because it’s embedded in the unit
assessment. Each program in COEHD and all other colleges have a
major field assessment.
Hancock & Devaney will provide the EDL
narrative before the next meeting.
Ms. Winstead reported that the formal
complaint process was approved by DAC. The use of the Data
Flowchart was approved with one change. It would not be
disseminated to the public until after final DAC approvel with the
Dissemination of Executive Summary.
In the new graduate program, all candidates
will complete the M-PEC pre-survey in the first research course (EDF
