Unit and Program Assessment


Unit assessment is a continuous process that underlies all excellent programs of teaching and learning. The Unit has designed the Teacher Education Assessment Management System (TEAMS) as a systematic process for determining the extent to which the initial and the advanced programs address the outcomes of the conceptual framework(s). Internal and external program assessment data are collected in order to help evaluate the work of the Unit. The goal is to direct improvement efforts in order to ensure program quality.
