CAEP Third Party Comments
The College of Education at the University of Alaska Anchorage is hosting an accreditation visit for its Initial Teacher Licensure programs by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) April 29-May 1, 2018. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the site team.
Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the party's relationship to the provider (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates).
We invite you to submit written testimony to:
1140 19th Street NW, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036
Or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline to submit third-party comments is March 17, 2018. All comments must be based on the core tenets of CAEP accreditation standards of excellence, which recognize that:
- In CAEP's performance-based system, accreditation is based on evidence that demonstrates that teacher candidates know the subject matter and can teach it effectively so that students learn. In the CAEP system, EPPs must prove that candidates can connect theory to practice and be effective in an actual P-12 classroom.
- A professional education provider that is accredited by CAEP is expected to be involved in ongoing planning and evaluation; engaged in continuous assessment and development; ensure that faculty and programs reflect new knowledge, practice, and technologies; and be involved in continuous development in response to the evolving world of education and educational reform.
Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to the university for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered.
