An Integrated Map Of The Iste Standards For Educators, Danielson Framework For Teaching, And Interstate Teacher Assessment And Support Consortium (Intasc) Standards, Tonia A. Dousay

Tonia A. Dousay


Teacher education at the University of Idaho, like many other institutions, must balance the demands of competing and complementary standards. At the national level, preservice teacher education often follows the guidelines set forth by the InTASC Standards, ensuring quality preparation across states. Similarly, the need to develop digitally literate citizens and effectively prepare teachers for this task calls to mind the ISTE Standards for Educators. However, state-level demands, like those in Idaho, introduce additional considerations. The purpose of this working paper is to highlight the similarities and differences among these groups of standards and introduce a crosswalk framework that maps ...

Responding To The College Completion Crisis In New Mexico: A Case Study Of The University Of New Mexico, Kalith Smith

A majority of students who enter college in New Mexico do not complete their degrees, a situation which deprives the state of the highly skilled workforce that is necessary to attract and retain business and industry. While low-cost or free college has increased attendance rates, the low college completion rate has incited an economic crisis for the state. The state’s flagship institution ...

Reports

A gathering of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) higher education stakeholders met in November 2018 to consider the relationship between innovation in education and assessment. When we talk about assessment in higher education, it is inextricably linked to both evaluation and accreditation, so all three were considered. The first question we asked was can we build a nation of learners? This starts with considering the student, first and foremost. As educators, this is a foundation of our exploration and makes our values transparent. As educators, how do we know we are having an impact? As members and implementers of ...
