In summer of 2012, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa College of Education submitted 14 program reports to the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Specialty Professional Associations. As of February 1, 2013, all 14 programs achieved a new seven-year period of national recognition.
“These national recognitions are essential to our ongoing accreditation review,” said College of Education Associate Dean Beth Pateman. “I want to recognize our faculty’s commitment to the continuous assessment and improvement of our teacher education programs. I also want to thank Jessica Miranda, our assessment coordinator; Wenwei Han, our data analyst; and Genta Togashi, who created the online Student Information System we use to manage our assessment data. Our college has a great team!”
The college will submit four reports to the Hawaiʻi Teachers Standards Board and four additional reports to NCATE for ongoing approval this spring and one in the fall. Five advanced program reports will be submitted in the summer. In spring 2014, NCATE will conduct an onsite visit following a review of the college’s comprehensive online Institutional Report, which will include all of the individual program achievements.
