College of Education Scorecard

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
