Field Observation Frequency and Duration

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). For more information on standards around the quality of teacher candidate's field experience, visit the Indicator 4B dashboard.

Version 1.3: The information below represents information for Indicator 4A from the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years. The two panels represent the Statewide averages and the results of the selected Educator Prep Program. Use the "Sort by EPP" filter to make a selection.

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. For the 2018-19 AY, only individuals completing clinical teaching or an internship for a teacher certificate are included in the data set. See the ASEP manual for more information about the identification, inclusion, and exclusion process. To learn more about the field observations or EPPs, visit the Consumer Information page.
