The SOE Assessment System
The SOE'S Assessment System collects data on candidate's proficiencies relative to the unit's conceptual framework, and institutional, state, and professional standards. This system is developed in accordance with the mission of the unit which is to develop highly qualified professionals who think critically and use best practices in diverse educational and clinical environments. The assessment system tracks initial and advanced education candidates from program entry through completion of their chosen program as well as their performance in the K-12 schools after program completion.

Faculty Professional Development
The focus is to engage faculty in scholarly activities and remain current in the area of assignment. Faculty members serve as professional development workshop facilitators and/or presenters in public schools. Faculty present at conferences in their disciplines and also make themselves and their knowledge of best practices available to students, teachers, and administrators. Faculty members are expected to list their goals for the upcoming year. These goals are based upon their analysis and reflections from the previous year or semester.
