Message from the SIG Chair

Greetings! Welcome to the Accreditation, Assessment, and Program Evaluation in Education Preparation Special Interest Group.  Members of our SIG are interested in research in educator preparation, accreditation and state approval reviews/processes, and program evaluation. Research studies focus on program/unit quality and candidate performance, including the interpretation of research findings on the competence of the graduates of educator preparation programs. We support members’ efforts by encouraging movement from a culture of compliance to the development of a culture of inquiry.
