Assessment

The School of Education at St. John’s University is currently a member in good standing with the Association for Advancing Quality in Educator Preparation (AAQEP). Our next AAQEP full accreditation review is scheduled for Spring 2023. In addition, the College was nationally accredited from 2011 to 2021 by TEAC, the Teacher Education Accreditation Council.

Assessment is the process of gathering data. More specifically, assessment is the way instructors gather data about their teaching and their students’ learning (Hanna & Dettmer, 2004). The data provides a picture using different forms of assessment such as pretests, observations, and examinations. Once this data is gathered, you can then evaluate the student’s performance. Evaluation, therefore, draws on one’s judgment to determine the overall value of an outcome based on the assessment data. It is in the decision-making process where we design ways to improve the recognized weaknesses, gaps, or deficiencies.

Here you can find our assessment activities, including reports that demonstrate our compliance with the AAQEP’s standards on learning outcomes and assessment.
