Educator Preparation Programs
IV. Gates (Transition Points), Assessments, and Other Requirements, with Corresponding Procedures for Data Collection, Analysis, and Use
The professional education unit has identified eleven (11) gates or transition points that are common to all programs beginning with initial programs and continuing through advanced programs. The initial certification programs (B.S.Ed., Post-Baccalaureate, and M.A.T.) have four gates or transition points (Gates 1-4), the advanced programs (M.M., M.Ed., and Ed.S.) have three gates (Gates 5-7), and the doctoral program (Ed.D.) has four gates (Gates 8-11). The table below outlines each gate with the corresponding procedures for data collection, analysis, and use.
