Creating Rubrics for NCATE Reports
In its effort to simplify the accreditation process, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education has limited the amount of documentation that a program can use to support its efforts for accreditation. With this “no frills” approach, the rubrics or scoring guides that accompany assessments provide critical information about the rigor and quality of a program to those reviewing the report. After programs select assessments that they feel best document their teacher candidates’ performance based on the beginning teacher standards, they also must identify the criteria they used to judge their teacher candidate performance on those assessments. This article discusses how to create rubrics that will best represent the program overall and enable it to receive a passing score.
