Quality Indicators for Nontraditional Teacher Preparation Programs
Call for Pilot Sites: The National Quality Indicators for Nontraditional Teacher Preparation Programs (QIs) are a tool for program self-assessment and continuous improvement, currently being pilot tested in programs across the country. The Quality Indicators are being developed by NAAC in conjunction with Project KNOTtT and The Ohio State University (OSU), through a federally funded Transition to Teaching (TtT) partnership led by OSU. NAAC is seeking additional nontraditional teacher preparation programs to participate in pilot testing of the QIs in 2012. Interested programs should complete the survey at the link below. The information collected through this survey will be used by the National Association for Alternative Certification (NAAC) and The Ohio State University (OSU) Project KNOTtT team to determine which programs will be selected for participation and ensure that the programs selected as pilot sites meet the needs of the researchers for validating the instrument. Completing this survey does not guarantee that your program will be selected to participate in the pilot test.
