Evidence of Teacher Candidate Quality
An Effective Teaching Program
The College of Education (COE) at North Greenville University believes that an effective teaching program is one that prepares teacher candidates to be educators who seek to inspire future generations to love learning; to invest in learning themselves so they can remain effective in the classroom; and, most importantly, to impact communities. Our teacher candidates become effective practitioners, caring leaders, and lifelong learners. The education programs at North Greenville University agree that effective teaching will ultimately place the student first. We seek to understand what exceptional teaching looks like and then to align our course work and clinical experiences around that understanding. Ultimately, the COE at North Greenville University has high expectations for our teacher candidate preparation. In order to maintain this quality and to ensure program improvement, the COE continually monitors candidate performance, collects and analyzes data, and makes unit and department changes based on the data results.
Praxis II Licensure Data
The Praxis II Content Area and Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) tests are administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). These tests must be passed for teacher candidates to be licensed South Carolina. Pass rates are reported by ETS. The College of Education at North Greenville University requires all candidates to pass both tests before qualifying to student teach. Therefore, the pass rate for program completers is 100%.
