 Program Planning Prompts:

Satisfactory performance is defined as achieving competence as expected for entry-level administrators.

At the end of the program and in the final section of the Candidate Portfolio for Administrative Field Experience/Administrative Internship and Signature Assignments (Appendix 2), a summative analysis takes place by the candidate’s advisor, the fieldwork supervisor (which may also be the candidate’s advisor), and the district mentor. This evaluation is based on the numerous formative assessments that have taken place during the candidate’s progress through the preparation program and the accompanying embedded fieldwork activities. The rating of the candidate is based upon a benchmark of achieving competence expected for entry-level administrators.

The faculty of the Educational Leadership and Administration Program are fully cognizant of the benchmark of competence. As noted in General Precondition 8, all faculty members are closely involved with the day-to-day work of school leaders either as leadership coaches for school and district leaders and/or as consultants to school districts, providing professional development to school leaders and teachers on a regular basis.

The Educational Leadership and Administration Program utilizes the Descriptions of Practice (WestEd, 2003) as a guide in the development of criteria and rubrics for candidate expectations. The third category clearly states, “Practice that meets the standard”, which is the basic criteria for the beginning or entry-level administrator. The Descriptions of Practice may be found in Appendix 13.

The program is designed to provide opportunities for candidates to learn how to maximize academic achievement for students for all ethnic, race, socioeconomic, cultural, academic, linguistic or family backgrounds; gender, gender identity and sexual orientation; students with disabilities and advanced learners; and students with a combination of special instructional needs. (See Program Standard 4).

The great majority of the assessments in the program take diversity into account. Assessment details may be found in Program Standard 4 and in the following courses and fieldwork activities:
