Wayne State College

Section 1: Contextual Information

1a. Description of the Institution

Wayne State College is a regional public institution, part of a state college system geographically positioned to serve northeast
Nebraska. The City of Wayne, population 5,583, is located approximately 100 miles northwest of Omaha and 50 miles southwest of
Sioux City, Iowa. Students are attracted to the College by its rural setting and small size, the personalized support by faculty, variety of
student activities, and opportunities to enhance leadership skills.

Wayne State College has a rich history as a teacher preparing institution. It was founded in 1891 as the Nebraska Normal College.
One of its most famous alumni, John G. Neihardt, attended the school in those early years and later wrote of the intellectual vistas the
place opened for him. “It was as though the college had been created for me. It lifted me to a higher, creative level of being. Often
there came upon me a thrilled sense of expectancy, as though something particularly glorious were getting ready to happen all at
once.” While Neihardt taught in the public schools for only a short time, he did go on to publish the tremendously popular book, Black
Elk Speaks. He was also named Nebraska’s poet laureate in 1921. A residence hall on campus bears his name.

The Nebraska legislature purchased the Normal College from J. M. Pile in 1910 and created Nebraska State Normal College. Its
history from that point follows a typical progression from normal college to state teacher’s college to state college. Contrary to the trend
John Goodlad and his colleagues have chronicled in Places Where Teachers Are Taught regarding the decline of both the status and
resources in teacher education programs, Wayne State College has consistently maintained an institutional dedication to the
preparation of teachers. In fact, a one-room schoolhouse sits on the campus as a reminder.

The mission statement for Wayne State College begins with three simple ideas: Learning Excellence, Student Success, and Regional
Engagement. Consistent with the mission of the College, the undergraduate teacher preparation unit provides leadership and service
to individuals, schools and communities in our service area. Our candidates and faculty work in partnership with area schools to
improve educational opportunities for all students.

The mission of the undergraduate teacher preparation unit is to facilitate the development of dynamic professional educators who know
how to collaborate for the benefit of self, others, school, community and the profession. This mission is accomplished through inquiry,
reflection, field-based learning experiences, and regional service. The professional education unit, in conjunction with the student,
                                                                                                                               Page 4: 10/1/2009



college community, and area partner schools, is responsible for bringing theory and practice together by encouraging inquiry and
reflection that facilitates learning and development. The faculty within the educational unit assumes the responsibility to assist teacher
candidates in developing attitudes, strategies, and knowledge to facilitate lifelong learning and growth not only within themselves, but in
each of the students they will have in their own classrooms some day.

The Wayne State College undergraduate professional education unit provides necessary resources and instruction to prepare
candidates for P-12 teacher certification. The unit has been nationally accredited since the 1960s, successfully completing its last
NCATE review in 2002. During the most recent academic year (2008-2009), there were 2,879 undergraduate students enrolled at
Wayne State College. Approximately 46% of the population was male, 54% female. Racial and ethnic minority students comprise 8%
of the population with additional diversity in the areas of socioeconomic status, language, religion, sexual orientation, geographical area
and exceptionality. Twenty-seven percent of initial declared enrollments were candidates in teacher education, 10% were business
majors, 48% were enrolled in the liberal arts and sciences and 15% were undeclared.

                             Middle Grades, Secondary, and K-12 candidates are included in their respective program Schools.

All undergraduate teacher education programs are under the auspices of the unit, led by a Teacher Preparation Assessment
Committee. The Business Education and Basic Business programs (endorsement courses are provided in Attachment A) are directed
by faculty within the Business and Economics Department. In addition, faculty within the Educational Foundations and Leadership
Department make substantive contributions to candidates’ professional education knowledge, pedagogical and dispositional bases. All
teacher education program outcomes at Wayne State College embrace the NCATE standards.
                                                                                                                             Page 5: 10/1/2009




1b. Standards for Admission, Retention and Exit from the Program

Program Entry and Advancement

Candidates preparing for professional education must meet benchmark criteria (see Gateways chart on next page) at multiple stages in
order to pass through established Gateways. These benchmarks include: course work completion, field experience recommendations,
passage of required standardized content tests, faculty recommendations, minimum grade point averages in content, professional
education and overall grade point average, and completion of a technology requirement.

Program Completion

Candidates must successfully complete all course work with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5, and they must receive
favorable recommendations from the cooperating teacher and college supervisor(s) at the conclusion of student teaching.

School of Education & Counseling
  Continuous Criteria
  Wayne State College faculty and the Professional Progress Committee (PPC) of the School of Education and Counseling are charged with monitoring the progress of all students (referred to as teacher candidates
  after passage through Gateway One) in professional education programs. A faculty review of candidates eligible to pass through each Gateway will be conducted prior to approval. Candidates wishing to be retained
  in the teacher education program must continually demonstrate professional attitude development, curriculum development ability, and instructional skill development. The same high moral and personal
  standards as required of certified teachers by the laws of the State of Nebraska must be met. Violation of institutional and/or Board of Trustees policies or regulations can be sufficient cause for denial of retention
  in the teacher education program. Candidates must also be free from those physical, emotional, and mental impairments such as those that would cause revocation of a teaching certificate by the State Board of
  Education.

The unit’s Conceptual Framework (CF) has been in place since 1992 with periodic modifications being made through faculty dialogue
and collaboration. Most significant was the threading of the unit’s Key Assessments to the CF outcomes (illustrated by the chart on the
next page), complete with unit-wide Key Assessments, scoring guides for those assessments, collection of data stored electronically,
and software to access, analyze and report trends. This was accomplished while maintaining an optimum focus on the unit’s description
of an outstanding professional educator, yet validating more specific program requirements for various professional organizations.

Descriptions of Key Assessments for Candidate Proficiencies

1d1. Content Knowledge
Candidates’ mastery of content knowledge is supported by the data from Content Area Courses Grade Point Averages. Content
knowledge is measured also in other key assessments such as Teacher Work Samples and the Survey of Recent Graduates. As
required by the Nebraska Department of Education, all Early Childhood, Elementary, and Elementary Special Education candidates
take a Praxis II Series test called Elementary Education Curriculum and Instruction Assessment (EECIA) and must receive a passing
score to be considered highly qualified according to No Child Left Behind standards.


1d2. Content Knowledge
Mastery of content knowledge for all candidates is additionally supported by the data from the Mid-term and Final Student Teaching
Evaluations. Assessment of work candidates do in all courses yields significant data relevant to content knowledge. When candidates
do their work in pedagogical classes, it is necessary that they use subject knowledge. There is a correlation of candidates’
understanding of subject knowledge and the quality of their pedagogical decision making.


1d3. Pedagogical and Professional Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions
Mastery of effective planning and implementation of appropriate teaching and learning experiences is demonstrated by the completion
of a Teacher Work Sample during capstone field experiences. Data is drawn from scores on Teacher Work Samples as assessed by
faculty. Data represents a comprehensive assessment of candidates’ pedagogical and professional knowledge, skills and dispositions.
This assessment occurs during clinical and practicum experiences, and student teaching. Scores are derived for pedagogy including
inquiry, reflection, planning, instruction, evaluation and effect on P-12 learning.


1d4. Pedagogical and Professional Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions
Candidates’ demonstration of mastery of knowledge, skills and dispositions is assessed during student teaching by the cooperating
teacher and college supervisor using the WSC Student Teaching Evaluation Form B. This assessment is completed at the mid-point
and at the end of student teaching. Data is drawn from the evaluative scores from the Student Teaching Evaluation which represents
the candidates’ pedagogical and professional knowledge, skills and dispositions.


1d5. Effects on P-12 Student Learning
Candidate mastery on P-12 student learning is demonstrated by aggregated data included from Clinical and Practicum evaluations,
Teacher Work Samples, Student Teaching Evaluations and Follow-Up Surveys. These assessments provide triangulation and
longitudinal high-confidence in the data with respect to the effects on P-12 learning.
                                                                                                                                                                              Page 11; 10/1/2009



1d6. Gateways & Benchmarks
Candidates’ demonstrations of mastery of knowledge, skills and dispositions is assessed throughout their programs of study and
recorded using the established Benchmarks in the Gateway System. This system provides data at point of entry, intermediate points,
and at the conclusion of the program of study. Data for each candidate is collected at Gateways 1, 2, 3 and 4.

1d7. Dispositions
To more fully emphasize dispositions, candidates complete the Dispositions Survey at specific points throughout their programs. Initial
completion is during their enrollment in EDU 201 Introduction to Professional Education and the final completion is at the end of the
student teaching semester.

1e. Description of Field Experiences
In accordance with the Nebraska Department of Education standards, all candidates complete a minimum of 100 clock hours of field
experiences prior to student teaching. A minimum of 80 percent of these experiences are integrated within courses (see table). The
field experiences for initial candidates are created in partnership with area schools. The first required field experience occurs in EDU
201 Introduction to Professional Education, a course required for all candidates regardless of endorsement. Candidates are assigned
to an accredited P-12 school setting and complete a minimum of 25 hours of field experience. The remaining field experiences are
dependent on the candidate’s chosen endorsement level.

All field experiences are designed to be developmental in nature, beginning with observation and reflection and progressing to
opportunities to develop pedagogical skills in a school setting using a reflective teaching model. Field experience culminates with 18
weeks (one college semester) of student teaching, as illustrated in the following chart:

Section 3: Key Assessments and Findings

Although it was not required for the folio reports, a comparison of education students against the general student population was
completed. The following table compares cumulative Grade Point Averages (GPA at time of graduation) for degree completers in
Education (those seeking endorsements to teach) and non-Education completers (those seeking non-teaching options) disaggregated
by year for three consecutive academic years. Interpretation of the data reported indicates that Education majors have statistically
significantly higher cumulative Grade Point Averages than non-Education majors.

PLEASE NOTE: Throughout the remainder of this folio, there will be references made to the rating scale used to rate
candidates on the assessments. The 0-4 scale is as follows:

                   0=Does Not Meet Standards       1=Not Acceptable        2=Acceptable       3=Target     4=Exceptional


The data reported in Section 3 of the folio has been organized to align with our seven Key Assessments. Each element begins with an
identifying number and phrase in bold (e.g. 1d1 Content Knowledge) which is our Key Assessment, followed by an Evaluation
Objective statement for that Key Assessment, followed by the data and an interpretation of the data.
                                                                                                                        Page 15; 10/1/2009



1d1. Content Knowledge as identified by Content Knowledge GPA (Results correlate with Conceptual Framework Outcome 3.1)

Evaluation Objective: Describe and evaluate the data and identify what information about mastery of content knowledge is
identified by analyzing the three years of cumulative data on Content GPA. The content knowledge GPA is determined using the
set of content knowledge courses in the program that are aligned to the Rule 24 Matrix. The alignment of these courses to Rule 24
standards demonstrates how each course represents the content knowledge required for the program. GPA is figured on a 4.0 scale.

For Middle and Secondary levels, mastery of content knowledge is supported by the data from Content Area Courses Grade Point
Average (three years of content area courses grade point averages for Middle Level and for each Secondary endorsement area).
Content knowledge is also measured in the other Key Assessments such as Teacher Work Sample, Student Teacher Evaluation, and
Survey of Recent Education Graduates.

                                               Key Assessment 1d1 Summary

                                  Report Run: May 2009

Comments: The endorsement GPA for the Business Education field endorsement majors was 3.13, representing a grade of “B” in
content knowledge. It appears that prospective Business Education teachers possess “Target” content/discipline-area knowledge in
their endorsed area.


1d2. Content Knowledge as identified by Student Teaching Evaluations (Results correlate with Conceptual Framework Outcome 3.1)

Evaluation Objective: What information about mastery of content knowledge is identified by analyzing the data from Student
Teaching Evaluation forms? Mastery of content knowledge is supported by the data from overall (cumulative) Grade Point Average.
Assessment of work that candidates do in all course work yields significant data relevant to content knowledge. When candidates
perform their work in pedagogical classes, it is necessary that they apply and demonstrate subject knowledge as well. There is a
correlation of candidates’ understanding of subject knowledge and the quality of their pedagogical decision making. Mastery of content
knowledge is further supported by data from the Student Teaching Evaluation form.

Candidates’ demonstration of mastery of content knowledge is assessed during student teaching by both the cooperating teacher and
college supervisor using the Student Teacher Evaluation form. This assessment is completed at both the mid-point and end of the
student teaching experience. Data is drawn from the evaluative scores from the Student Teaching Evaluation which represent the
candidates’ content knowledge. Column C.F. 3.1 in Table 1d2 reflects “Knowledge” in the WSC Conceptual Framework.
                                                                                                      Page 16; 10/1/2009

Comments: As noted in Column CF 3.1 in Key Assessment (Table 1d2 above), Business Education student teachers were assessed
by their college student teaching supervisors and cooperating teachers as 3.5, exceeding “Target” assessment in Content Knowledge.

As indicated by Key Assessment-Content GPA (Table 1d1) and Key Assessment-Content Knowledge-Student Teaching (Table 1d2,
Column 3.1), Business Education field endorsement majors at Wayne State College exceed “Target” content knowledge in their
endorsed program of study.

The content knowledge for Business Education candidates for the period 2006-1 through 2008-9 indicates that those candidates met
the target levels for overall content knowledge. The sources of this information are the mid-term and final student teaching evaluations
completed by cooperating teachers and the college supervisors.


1d3. Pedagogical and Professional Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions as identified by Teacher Work Sample (Results correlate with
Conceptual Framework Outcomes 1.1, 1.2, 2 and 3)

Evaluation Objective: What information about pedagogical and professional knowledge, skills and dispositions is identified
by analyzing the data from Teacher Work Samples? Mastery of effective planning and implementation of appropriate teaching and
learning experiences is demonstrated by data scores from the Teacher Work Sample and assessed by unit faculty. This data
represents a comprehensive assessment of candidates’ pedagogical and professional knowledge, skills and dispositions. This
assessment is completed by unit faculty using artifacts produced by candidates during their clinical and/or student teaching experience.
Scores are derived for pedagogy including inquiry, reflection, planning, instruction, evaluation and affect on P-12 learning. This data is
representative of 2008-1, the semester in which Teacher Work Samples were initially required during student teaching.

                                                Teacher Work Sample is based on one semester only

Comments: Beginning in the spring 2008 semester, student teachers were required to complete Teacher Work Samples as part of their
EDU 410 student teaching requirements. Therefore, data is limited for this area. Of the three Business Education student teachers
reported in Table 1d3, one student teacher averaged a 2.0 “Acceptable” score on several dispositions, compared to the 4.0
“Exceptional” scores of the other two student teachers. The 3.44 overall average, however, indicates that WSC Business Education
student teachers were evaluated at “Target” levels or above on their Teacher Work Samples.


1d4. Pedagogical and Professional Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions as identified through Student Teaching Mid-term and Final
Evaluations (Results correlate with Conceptual Framework Outcomes 1.1, 1.2, 2 and 3)

Evaluation Objective: What information about pedagogical and professional knowledge, skills and dispositions is identified
by analyzing the data from Student Teacher Evaluation Form B? Candidates’ demonstration of mastery of knowledge, skills and
dispositions is assessed during student teaching by both the cooperating teacher and college supervisor(s) using the Student Teacher
Evaluation form. This assessment is completed at the mid-point and at the end of student teaching. Data used are scores from
                                                                                                                                                                               Page 19; 10/1/2009

Comments: As noted in Table 1d4 on Page 19, aggregate results for the five Business Education student teachers enrolled in EDU 410
Directed Student Teaching from 2006 through 2008 indicate that Business Education student teachers received an overall evaluation
score of 3.30 from their cooperating and supervising teachers, indicating student teachers were above “Target” regarding pedagogical
knowledge, skills and dispositions. Overall growth was seen from the mid-term to final evaluations. Please note that Business
Education students’ averages for pedagogical knowledge, skills and dispositions improved during the past three years, from 3.11 to the
most recent term score of 3.42.

1d5. Effects on P-12 Student Learning as identified through Teacher Work Samples, Student Teaching Evaluations and Follow-Up
Surveys (Results correlate with Conceptual Framework Outcome 2.3)

Evaluation Objective: What information about the effect on P-12 student learning is identified by analyzing the data from
Clinical Evaluations, Teacher Work Samples, Student Teaching Evaluations and Follow-Up Surveys? Candidates’ mastery on
P-12 student learning is demonstrated by aggregated data included from Clinical Evaluations, Teacher Work Samples, Student
Teaching Evaluations and Follow-Up Surveys of graduates as well as employment supervisors/principals. These assessments provide
triangulation and longitudinal high-confidence in the data with respect to effects on P-+12 learning. Columns 2.3 in Table 1d5 below
specifically report data related to P-12 student learning as reflected in the Teacher Work Sample.

Comments: Beginning in the spring 2008 semester, student teachers were required to complete Teacher Work Samples as part of their
EDU 410 directed student teaching requirements. Thus, there is no data to report for 2006 and 2007. The overall rating by
cooperating teachers and college supervisors was 3.10 “Target,” whereas the disposition average self reported by student teachers well
exceeded “Target” with a 3.63 average. The overall average of the Teacher Work Sample was 3.33, also “Target.” Results indicate
that candidates have a positive impact on student learning during their student teaching experiences as assessed by cooperating
teachers, college supervisors, completion a dispositions survey (self-assessment) and through the completion of the Teacher Work
Sample.

Of the three Business Education student teachers reported in Table 1d5, one student teacher averaged a 2.0 “Acceptable” score,
compared to the 4.0 “Exceptional” scores of the other two student teachers. It is interesting to note that the student teacher with the 2.0
Teacher Work Sample rating correlated closely with his/her student teaching performance. The Teacher Work Sample submitted by
this student teacher contained deficiencies, lack of attention to detail, and minor errors that would typically not be expected of a future
business teacher. Similar traits were also exhibited during student teaching. Although the Teacher Work Sample was evaluated as
“Acceptable,” the student teacher failed to put forth the extra effort, content, and proofreading skills that would have resulted in a higher
score. During the student teaching experience, this student teacher consistently had difficulty accepting constructive criticism from
his/her cooperating teachers and college supervisor(s) and failed to demonstrate extensive “growth” in learning and teaching skills
throughout the semester.

In addition to the Teacher Work Sample and Student Teaching Evaluation results, information about the effect beginning teachers (unit
graduates) have on P-12 Student Learning is identified by analyzing the data collected from recent graduates using the Survey of
Recent Teacher Education Graduates. This survey requested information from these first year teachers’ regarding their perception of
their preparation to teach. Analysis of the data indicates for all Conceptual Framework Outcomes aggregate mean scores meet or
exceed the criteria of Target for all candidates. Candidates self-reported their readiness for the responsibilities of first year teaching
and the efficacy of their preparation to teach. Comments from survey respondents indicated the following commendations: supportive
professors, good variety of experiences, small class sizes, practical and useful content, NENTA experiences with APL training, positive
significance of field experiences, consistency of commitment to excellence among professors, the importance of classroom
management, and faculty interests in students’ lives beyond the classroom. (Suggestions from respondents will be listed in Section 4
Programmatic Recommendations 1d5.)

Additional data was sought from the immediate supervisors of these beginning teachers using the Survey for Principals and
Supervisors. Analysis of the results of the data from this Survey (Table 1d5E) indicates that in the opinions of these supervisors,
Wayne State College graduates are meeting or exceeding the criteria of Target for all Conceptual Framework Outcomes. Additional
comments from principals and supervisors who responded to this survey indicated the following commendations: WSC first-year
teacher graduates are well prepared, eager and ready to contribute, and are immediate assets to their respective school districts.
Supervisors also indicated that first-year teachers who knew APL strategies were especially effective. (Suggestions from respondents
will be listed in Section 4: 1d5.) The table immediately below features a summary of all principal/supervisor respondents.

Evaluation Objective: What information about candidate knowledge, skills and dispositions is identified by analyzing the data
from the Gateways & Benchmarks? Candidates’ demonstrations of mastery of knowledge, skills and dispositions are assessed
throughout their programs of study and recorded using Wayne State College’s “Benchmarks in the Gateway” system. These Gateways
and Benchmarks are identified through Pre-Professional Skills Tests; minimum cumulative Grade Point Average in all content
coursework, endorsement coursework and in professional education coursework; positive recommendations from endorsement area,
school of education faculty and one additional faculty member outside the endorsement and education. This system provides data at
the candidate’s point of entry, intermediate points and conclusion of their program of study in the School of Education.

Gateway 1

Table 1d6 on Pages 24-25 reports scores on the 5 principle outcomes at Gateway 1 entry-level to the teacher education program.
These scores are determined using ENG 102 English Composition and CNA 100 Principles of Human Communication course grades
along with elements of rubrics from the educational philosophy paper, the field experience evaluation, field experience reflections, and

 Comments Gateway 4: At the completion of the EDU 410 student teaching experience, candidates are again evaluated, using the
 same 0-4 benchmarks for assessment of candidate achievement on the five outcomes identified above. As noted in Table 1d6 on Page
 28, Business Education candidates scored well above “Target,” often at “Exceptional” levels, with scores for the five outcomes.
                                                                                                                                               Page 29; 10/1/2009




1d7. Dispositions as identified through Disposition Surveys completed at EDU 201 Introduction to Professional Education and at the
completion of EDU 410 Student Teaching (Correlates with Conceptual Framework Outcomes 3.3 and 5)

Evaluation Objective: What information about candidates’ dispositions is identified by analyzing data from the Dispositions
Survey? Examination of the data reported on dispositions for secondary initial candidates at the two pre-determined junctures in their
programs (EDU 201 first course in Education program and EDU 410 last course in Education program) shows a consistent tendency.
Data from the initial data collection point for all five Conceptual Framework categories shows that candidates’ aggregate mean scores
were above the Target level (3.0) indicating positive dispositions toward the profession of teaching. Data from the final collection point
shows that candidates’ dispositions to teach have risen during their programs of study inferring that initial candidates’ knowledge bases
and confidence in their abilities to teach in all five of these areas was positively affected by their programs of study.

1f. Unique Program Assessments

The field endorsement in Business Education at Wayne State College utilizes multiple unique program assessments beyond the Key
Assessments and the Gateways and Benchmarks. Sample unique assessments include, but are not limited to, the following:

   •   Knowledge and Skills Proficiency tests, administered in BUS 216 Office Information Processing, as follows:

       Timed Writing Proficiency Assessment. Timed writing proficiency speed/accuracy timings are administered in BUS 216
       Office Information Processing, using national standardized keyboarding grading scale based on employability standards, ranging
       from a minimum of 30 WAM (D) to 65 WAM (A+) speeds. The WSC School of Business & Technology utilizes the following
       performance criteria: 90% of the students will key at minimum employability speed of 35 WAM within a 3 error limit.

       10-Key Data Entry Proficiency Assessment. 10-Key data entry proficiency tests are administered in BUS 216 Office
       Information Processing, using national standardized 10-key grading scale accompanying the text/software which utilizes
       business-industry employability standards as follows. The WSC School of Business & Technology utilizes the following
       performance criteria: 90% of the students will key at minimum 10-key data entry employability speed of 8,000 keystrokes
       per hour or faster with 98% accuracy.

                      A = 12,000 keystrokes/hr        B = 10,000 keystrokes/hr        C = 8,000 keystrokes/hr        D = 6,000 keystrokes/hr

•   Test of Understanding of College Economics (TUCE) economics content literacy tests administered in ECO 202 and 203
    Micro/Macro Economics courses. The TUCE economics content literacy test is administered when Business Administration and
    Business Education/Marketing Education field endorsement majors complete 6 hours of college economics courses (ECO 202
    Principles of National Economics-Macroeconomics and ECO 203 Principles of Market Economic System-Microeconomics).

    During the 2007-08 academic year, the TUCE national economics literacy exam was administered as a 30-question pre- and
    post-test to WSC students after they had completed six hours of economics courses. Data from the 2008-09 academic year is
    still being compiled and analyzed and not available for this report. The data bank source was the Test of Understanding of
    College Economics, 4th edition, Walstad, Watts and Rebeck, authors.

    The pre-test was administered at the beginning of both the Fall and Spring semesters, and the same exam was administered
    again as a post-test at the completion of those semesters. For sample reporting purposes, only the results of the Spring 2008
    pilot pre- and post-test using WebCT online testing are reported here, as the results of the pencil-paper Scantron tests are not
    yet compiled. TUCE pre- and post-test results for Spring 2008 (one section only) are as follows:
        • 24 students took the 30-question TUCE pre- and post-test during the Spring 2008 semester in ECO 203
        • The test was administered by Economics professor and department chair, Dr. Charles Parker, who is responsible for
            compiling the results.
        • Pre-Test results: The mean score was 10.25 correct/30, reflecting the 67th percentile nationally.
        • Post-Test results: The mean score was 12.79 correct/30, reflecting the 60th percentile nationally.

    Comments: Although students demonstrated post-test growth in “correct” answers, their national percentile ranking was lower.
    The WSC School of Business and Technology has as its goal for the 2008-09 academic year to implement curriculum content
    changes in Economics courses which will hopefully result in improved scores in the coming year.

•   EDU 409 Business Methods projects and required lesson plan format adhering to state and national Business Ed standards
    (Appendix E, Pages 56-61).

    All Business Education students are required to utilize a standardized lesson plan which includes lesson overview, goals,
    objectives, and procedures, as well as assessment criteria. In addition, lesson and unit plans must reflect state and national
    standards appropriate for Business Education.

•   EDU 409 Project rubrics (Student-Submitted “Checkbook” Lesson Plan, Appendix F.) Business Methods faculty evaluated a
    student-submitted “Checkbook” lesson plan for the Money & Banking unit using the e-rubric on Page 62.
                                                                                                                      Page 32; 10/1/2009



Section 4: Program Improvement

Based on the data from Key Assessments and departmental discussions, it is concluded that candidates seeking Business Education
field endorsements are performing on “Target” or better.

Comments: The Key Assessment Data indicates that Business Education field endorsement majors are performing at “Acceptable,”
“Target” or “Commendable” levels in terms of GPA, dispositions, performance during student teaching, etc.


1d1. Content Knowledge from Endorsement GPA
Programmatic Recommendations: In order to provide content-area mastery in the discipline, it is imperative that the WSC Business
Education program of study maintain rigor and relevance as reflected by course offerings. Overall, the endorsement GPAs of Business
Education field endorsement majors indicate that these candidates possess subject matter content knowledge. However, data
collected and reported in the “Unique Assessments” section indicate that Business Education field endorsement majors are weak in
Economics knowledge, according to the TUCE economics literacy data. It is recommended that existing or proposed changes maintain
the requirement of 6 hours of Economics.


1d2. Content Knowledge from Student Teaching Evaluations
Programmatic Recommendations: Mastery of content knowledge is supported by the data from overall GPA. Assessment of work that
candidates do in all course work yields significant data relevant to content knowledge. When candidates do their work in pedagogical
classes, it is necessary that they use subject matter knowledge. There is a correlation of candidates’ understanding of subject
knowledge and the quality of their pedagogical decision making exhibited during student teaching. Data indicates that Wayne State
College Business Education student teachers demonstrated “Target” content knowledge as reported by their cooperating teacher(s)
and college supervisor(s).

1d3. Pedagogical and Professional Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions
Programmatic Recommendations: Mastery of effective planning and implementation of appropriate teaching and learning experiences
was evidenced by Data scores from the Teacher Work Sample. The Work Samples, which were assessed by unit faculty, represents a
comprehensive assessment of candidates’ pedagogical and professional knowledge, skills and dispositions. This assessment is
completed by unit faculty using a(n) artifact(s) produced by candidates during their clinical and/or student teaching experience.
                                                                                                                         Page 33; 10/1/2009



Although Business Education field endorsement majors demonstrated/exhibited desired professional knowledge, skills and dispositions
for teaching, it is recommended that the Business Education Methods instructor also address the Teacher Work Sample requirement,
emphasizing particularly the need to proofread and provide an adequate, quality reflection within the Work Sample.


1d4. Pedagogical and Professional Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions
Programmatic Recommendations: Candidates’ demonstration of mastery of knowledge, skills and dispositions is assessed during
student teaching by the cooperating teacher and college supervisor(s) using the Student Teacher Evaluation Form. This assessment is
collected at the mid-point and at the end of the student teaching experience. Data is drawn from scores from Student Teaching
Evaluations assessed by unit faculty and represent a comprehensive assessment of candidates’ pedagogical and professional
knowledge, skills and dispositions. This assessment is completed by unit faculty using a(n) artifact(s) produced by candidates during
the student teaching experience.

Data in Table 1d4 on Page 19 indicates that Business Education field endorsement majors demonstrated “Target” knowledge, skills and
dispositions, although they scored weakest (3.05 respectively) in 2.1 “Planning” and 2.2 “Facilitating Learning” dispositions during
student teaching. It is recommended that Business Methods course provide additional opportunities for candidates to acquire greater
skill in planning for instruction and evaluating student work.


1d5. Effects on P-12 Student Learning
Programmatic Recommendations: Candidate mastery on P-12 student learning is demonstrated by aggregated data included from
clinical evaluations, Teacher Work Samples, Student Teaching Evaluations, and Follow-Up Surveys. These assessments provide
triangulation and longitudinal high-confidence in the data with respect to the effects on P-12 learning.

Changes that have been made include the addition of the Teacher Work Sample during student teaching. When addressing the
Teacher Work Sample project in EDU 409 Business Education Methods and Materials course, it is recommended that the instructor
provide greater emphasis on the importance for candidates to not only meet the requirements of the project in terms of content, but to
carefully proofread technical writing skills and provide adequate reflection.

At Wayne State College, secondary Business Education field endorsement student teachers are observed five times throughout their
student teaching semester – three observations by Wayne State College education faculty and two observations by endorsement-area
faculty. It is imperative that the two-observation requirement by content-area faculty be maintained.
                                                                                                                         Page 34; 10/1/2009




Some of the data for this Key Assessment are the results of the Survey of Recent Teacher Education Graduates. Responses to this
survey were not segregated by endorsement area, but results provide good general information about graduates of the unit. Two
variables were examined in this self-assessment. The first was Responsibility, i.e. how well in their opinion were they as beginning
teachers able to assume the responsibilities for teaching. The second was Preparation, i.e. how well in their opinion did Wayne State
College prepare them for their role as a teacher. A result of the data analysis affirms that the scope and direction of the teacher
education program is preparing quality first-year teachers. The qualitative data from recent graduates suggested a continued
commitment to smaller class sizes, significant interactions between faculty and students, embedding of practical “hands-on” methods
experiences, classroom management courses that develop philosophy along with applicable preventions and interventions, offering
APL Level I as an elective course, and maintaining faculty interest in students’ lives beyond the classroom. Continued examination of
the data on new candidates will occur at the end of each Spring Semester.

Comments from the Principals and Supervisors include a general satisfaction regarding the overall preparation of Wayne State College
first-year teacher graduates. The consensus from principals and supervisors is that WSC graduates are most eager and willing to
make thoughtful professional contributions to their districts immediately and substantively thereby indicating that the initial teacher
preparation programs are achieving the level of target.

In order to continue our high level of quality, it was suggested (from all respondents - not just Business Education respondents) to
include additional background for all candidates in curriculum and assessment, instructional design and delivery methods, classroom
management, communicating with parents, and instruction on using technology.


1d6. Gateways & Benchmarks
Programmatic Recommendations: Candidates’ demonstration of mastery of knowledge, skills and dispositions is assessed throughout
their program of study and recorded using the Wayne State College “Benchmarks in the Gateway” system. This system provides data
at point of entry, intermediate points, and at the conclusion of their program of study. The Benchmark and Gateway system at Wayne
State College works well to screen, admit, monitor, and supervise candidates throughout their educational “journey” to become
teachers. No program changes are recommended.

1d7. Dispositions
Programmatic Recommendations: To more fully emphasize dispositions, candidates complete the Dispositions Survey at specific
points throughout their program of study. Initial completion is during EDU 201 Introduction to Professional Education, whereas terminal
completion occurs at the conclusion of their student teaching experience (EDU 410).
                                                                                                                      Page 35; 10/1/2009



1f. Unique Program Assessments
Programmatic Recommendations: The field endorsement in Business Education at Wayne State College utilizes multiple unique
program assessments beyond the Key Assessments and the Gateways and Benchmarks. In addition to content-specific GPA, Business
Education candidates are assessed using national skills standards related specifically to touch keyboarding speed/accuracy and 10-key
data entry. In addition, the NCEE national economics content literacy exam is administered to Business Administration and Business
Education candidates at the completion of their six (6) hours of required economic courses (Macro- and Micro-Economics).

Comments: Although WSC Business Education majors meet or exceed GPA and/or skills competency standards, the results of the
first-year TUCE national economics content literacy exam were disappointing. Although candidates demonstrated post-test growth in
“correct” answers, their national percentile ranking was lower. The WSC School of Business and Technology has as its goal to
implement Economics curriculum content changes which will hopefully result in improved scores in the coming year.
