Field Observation Quality

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 Indicator 4B regarding the quality of field observations from the 2018-2019 school year.

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. This survey does not capture demographic information of the respondent. See the ASEP manual for more information about the survey process.
