COED Assessment – Faculty Calibration Activity

Faculty Calibration Activity – required of all faculty!
All faculty are required to calibrate on our COED Assessment of Professional Dispositions every three years. This tool is used by all programs and calibration is required of all faculty, for both assessment and accreditation purposes. The Calibration Activity is a separate Canvas module … faculty must be enrolled and invited to the Calibration module.

The Office of Assessment will do this for you automatically … please accept the email invitation when you receive it and complete the Calibration Activity by TBD. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Brad Smith at BradleySmith@charlotte.edu.

COED Data Dashboards – for Internal Use Only!

The COED maintains multiple data dashboards to report data for various programs. Faculty are welcome to peruse these dashboards for program improvement purposes or to consider future research projects. Any COED dashboard data used for research purposes must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

  • Data included on the dashboard are comprised of Student Learning Outcome (SLO) data sources and external data required review by external mandate or accreditation purposes. We have not included all available COED data.
  • There are two (2) COED Data Dashboard Sites and more information can be viewed on this page.
  • If there is a specific data set or comparison you wish to use that is not available on the dashboard, please contact Dr. Brad Smith at BradleySmith@charlotte.edu.

NOTE: Access to the Dashboards is restricted to current full-time faculty only. To request access, submit a request to the COED Office of Assessment at coedassessment@charlotte.edu.

COED Assessment – edTPA Resources

edTPA Resources
edTPA is used in the COED to assess student teaching candidates at the end of their programs. We embed edTPA “practice tasks” throughout the program of study. Faculty teaching in the initial licensure programs (REEL, MDSK, and SPCD departments) will need access to the edTPA Canvas sites.

  • COED edTPA Resources page for students and faculty – all edTPA materials, handbooks, templates, video permissions, and resource documents are available from this site. To access the site, faculty and students self-enroll using these directions.
  • COED Faculty Examples site – Examples of edTPA samples for faculty to use with students. Only faculty have access — videos may not be downloaded from this site. To access this site, send an email requesting access to coedassessment@charlotte.edu or contact Brandi Lewis in the Office of Assessment at bllewis@charlotte.edu.
