    Data are maintained on this program in the Office of Accreditation and Quality Assurance. Data from courses are submitted by instructors or other appropriate personnel at the end of each semester for entry into the system to the program administrative assistant and/or the Office of Accreditation and Quality Assurance.

    A Data Summary Report which summarizes the data is provided to the program every fall semester by the Office of Accreditation and Quality Assurance. In addition, faculty receives annual reports on data from surveys of interns, coaching teachers, and supervisors and data from surveys of graduates. Data are analyzed with recommendations for program change annually as described here:

    A designated member of the Elementary Education faculty will serve as facilitator of the MAT program assessment data collection. This facilitator will be responsible for communications with candidates, faculty, and staff regarding the logistics of data collection. The facilitator will check data collection records at least once each semester and taken appropriate actions if any data are missing.

    A team of Elementary Education faculty will analyze data, using appropriate quantitative and qualitative data analysis methods that provide answers to the primary and secondary questions. In doing so, the team will look for patterns that emerge from candidate performance data at different points of program completion. Also, the team will employ analyses to determine the similarities and differences in candidates who are members of

    underrepresented minority groups and other candidates. The Elementary Education faculty will review and discuss the analyses as a group; as requested, they will have access to the original data. The minutes of the Elementary Education meeting will contain appropriate recommendations for program change.

Besides being used for ongoing program assessment, Program Assessment Plans, Data Summary Sheets, and Program Change Forms are

    ; Submitted to the USC Office of Institutional Assessment and Compliance (annually) via the COE Office of Accreditation and Quality Assurance

    ; Reviewed by the Professional Education Unit’s Quality Assurance Committee in the rotation review cycle (at least once every five years or more
