Third Party Solicitation for CAEP
The College of Education and Human Development at Radford University is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) on November 3, 2019. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the site team up to six weeks prior to the site visit. 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).
Such comments may be submitted 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, educator preparation programs (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.
• Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the respondent's relationship, if any, to the institution (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to the university for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered.
We invite you to submit written testimony to:
1140 19th Street NW, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036
