Program Prioritization                                           College/School:                    College of Education
Program Data Template

Definitional Note: The name of the process being engaged in is program prioritization. However, it is acknowledged that most of the data requested here must be
reported at the unit level. In this sense, “units” typically will be academic departments (not necessarily code units). Please make sure that the numbers recorded
below represent the unit named above. If units wish to single out particular programs (degrees, minors, certificates, concentrations) for comment, that commentary
will occur in Part II of this template.

This data template consists of two parts. Part I is quantitatively oriented and organizes a wide range of indicator variables to
measure a unit’s program productivity, centrality, and quality. These three sections of Part I are preceded by a contextual program
demographic section. Please note that the breadth of measures is intentional and not tailored to the uniqueness of any individual
program. As a result, it is quite likely that some entries will not apply or be zero. For example, many programs do not have access to
licensure or certification examinations. Some of the data requested in Part I of the template are supplied centrally but some of the
indicators must be self-reported. If the value of any institutionally provided indicator seems to be at odds with local (unit, college)
knowledge, please correct that value and supply a note (in the comments section of the spreadsheet) to that effect indicating the
change and the source of the new data. Part II is more qualitative in nature and requests short narratives so that units can express
attributes of their program(s) that might escape quantitative expression. In addition, the second section permits synthesis and
analysis that yields knowledge of programs unattainable directly from Part I.

Program Data Template

Part II. Program Data Template, Short Narratives

Teaching: The Business and Information Technologies Education department offers undergraduate and
graduate courses in business, marketing and information technology education. The program is
considered an innovative and pioneer in the field as it has offered degrees entirely online through distance
education since 1996. Although the BITE department has a small number of faculty, we serve a large
non-traditional student population.

The BITE department currently offers a BSBE in business education and a BSBE in business and
marketing education degree. Based on the current enrollments of the licensure programs, the BITE
department proposes the elimination of the undergraduate business education program. The department
will continue to offer the business and marketing education undergraduate teacher licensure degree and
merge the business education majors into one unified program.

                      2009     2010      2011
  BSBE BEME            24       10        33
  BSBE BE              16       9         11

The BSBE in information technology education enrollment has remained competitive and will continue to
be a viable program as it provides access to non-traditional students who are unable to attend campus
based programs.
 Completion rate of 85%
 BSBE Information Technology degree is the only program offered within the UNC System.
 Offers a 2+2 Community College Partnership which focuses on creating career opportunities in the
    advances of office systems technology, globalization, and demographic shifts in workforce
    development needs.

MS in Vocational Education offers students, primarily non-traditional students currently in the workforce
an opportunity to advance their career.
 Strong focus on computer information technology.
 Focuses on the global marketplace and economic impact to North Carolina.
 MS Information Technology degree at ECU is the only degree programs of that type within the UNC
 The MS degree graduates primarily become Office Systems Technologies instructors in the
    community colleges.

MAT (Master of Arts in Teaching) and MAEd (Masters of Arts in Education) degree programs lead to
advanced licensure and prepares business and marketing education teachers.
 The MAEd provides for the 10% pay supplement within the discipline.
 The department discussed the consolidation of the MS and MAEd, but feel that delineation of
   advanced licensure is essential to teacher educators.
 The BITE program currently has 27 students seeking teacher education certification. These students
   are not reflected in our degree program numbers.
Within the past three years the BITE department has had a decrease of three tenure – tenure track faculty.
Despite the decrease the department has continued to produce a high number of SCH (Student Credit

Scholarship: Currently the BITE department has five tenure, tenure-track faculty that conduct a variety of
research projects. Though the faculty is small in number the production of refereed journals, book
chapters and presentations is competitive with larger departments.

     5 book chapters and one book published between 2009-2011.
     An average of 3.0 refereed articles and presentations per tenure and tenure track faculty FTE in 2011.
