Regent’ Report Section III-3

What policy modifications, procedural changes, or other improvements occurred or are planned in the department due to assessments?  Highlight department change and achievements based on assessments. (A brief paragraph.)

The English department recommends that candidates review informational material about the examination process at the CEOE website and attend test-taking study sessions from our education department. Being prepared in this way can alleviate student test-taking anxiety. The English department stays in close contact with our candidates through advising and conferences with students.  In addition, the English department examines standards and program alignment based on accreditation in coordination with our education department in order to continue to prepare students for the licensing exam. This process entails a close look at implementation of the NCTE/CAEP standards for the purpose of student success.

Regent’ Report Section III-2

What were the analysis and findings from last year’s department assessments?  Include results of the assessments, analysis, or meaning.  (A brief paragraph.)

 The English Education candidates are passing the OSAT at 100% pass rate. One candidate had to take the test twice before passing it, but the candidate took his/her a majoritey of the coursework from another community college/university. The other assessments used, which include coursework, student teaching, and portfolio's, indicate all candidates are passing at a Competent or above level. The results of the assessments indicate the English Education candidates have a competent background in the English curriculum and are prepared to teach English in the classroom.

There are no current changes in the English Department because the candidates  are preforming at the Competent and above level on all the assessments. However, starting with the new catalogue, 2013-2014 as a part of the required curriculum the candidates will be required to take a Young Adult Literature course.
