Unit assessment forms

The unit assessment forms will be required for all teacher licensure programs.  These forms are the required  for the CAEP accreditation process, and the forms are aligned with the appropriate professional standards.  The unit assessments are completed during student teaching to assess the candidate’s performance in pedagogy and professional dispositions.  The candidate, clinical educator and university liaison complete the form and then consensus scores are agreed upon during a conference.  Candidates are assessed during the midterm and final weeks of the clinical experience through the usage of developmental rubrics in the VARI-EPP.
