Field Observations

ASEP Indicator 4 is the frequency, duration, and quality of field observations. The State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) has separated this indicator into two measures: the frequency and duration of field observations (4a) and the quality of field observations (4b). The information below represents information from the 2017-2018 school year. Use the bars on the dashboard to sift through the data. To learn more about the field observations or EPPs, visit the Consumer Information page.

Indicator 4a
Indicator 4a is based on data reported by EPPs into ECOS for each individual observation. Individuals who completed an internship or clinical teaching appointment during the reporting period are included. In the cases where an internship or clinical teaching appointment overlaps two reporting years, the field experience is reported in the reporting year in which it ended. See the ASEP guide for more information about the identification, inclusion, and exclusion process.

Indicator 4b
Indicator 4b is based on an exit survey of teacher candidates which is administered at the time they apply for their standard certificate. For indicator 4b, all individuals who apply for an initial standard teaching license during the academic year are asked to submit data.
