Call for 3rd Party Comment
The College of Education - Professional Education Unit at the State University of New York at Fredonia is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) on September 20-22, 2015. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the visiting team. Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the party’s relationship to the EPP (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). No anonymous testimony will be considered.

• In CAEP’s performance-based system, accreditation is based on evidence that demonstrates that teacher candidates know the subject matter and can teach it effectively so that students learn. In the CAEP system, EPP’s must prove that candidates can connect theory to practice and be effective in an actual P-12 classroom.
• A professional education unit that is accredited by CAEP is expected to be involved in ongoing planning and evaluation; engaged in continuous assessment and development; ensure that faculty and programs reflect new knowledge, practice, and technologies; and be involved in continuous development in response to the evolving world of education and educational reform.

We invite you to submit written testimony to:
