The Continuous Improvement of Candidate and Student Learning (CICSL) is the assessment system of the Professional Education Unit depicted in the figure. The preparation of the Education Professional Candidate to be a competent and effective education professional is central to the system and the Professional Education Unit-Conceptual Framework (PEU-CF) provides the foundation for the CICSL system.
Key assessments for both Candidate Performance and Unit Operations enables the PEU to collect and analyze data to evaluate and improve the performance of candidates, the unit, and its programs.
Five Candidate Performance matrices outline key candidate performance assessments by certification preparation program at four CICSL Data Checkpoints in each candidateâ€™s program.
