GSE Celebrates NCATE Accreditation Renewal

The Graduate School of Education (GSE) has been reaccredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) after overhauling its system of evaluating students.
NCATE, which is responsible for evaluating 623 teacher-education organizations in the United States, announced on November 10 that it approved the school’s accreditation, which is subject to renewal every five years.

Unlike previous rounds, GSE had to develop a school-wide assessment system that helped form the University assessment system used during its Middle States evaluation process.

James D. Hennessy, Ph.D., dean of GSE, said the bar for accreditation has been rising. He noted that the school has greatly advanced how it assesses students and graduates, and aggregates data about the skills, attitudes and knowledge they have developed.
