Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate knowledge of principles of content-specific and developmentally appropriate pedagogy.
  • Demonstrate your ability to learn important details about a classroom of students, an English learner, and a student who presents a different instructional challenge; and plan instruction that is shaped by and addresses those student characteristics, and you will demonstrate your ability to connect learning about students to instructional planning.
  • Demonstrate your ability to select a unit of study, identify related learning goals, and plan standards-based, developmentally-appropriate student assessment activities for a group of students; and assess student learning and diagnose student needs based on student responses to the assessment activity, and show how you would apply this information to your future planning for these students.
  • Demonstrate your ability to design a standards-based lesson for a class of students, implement that lesson while making appropriate use of class time and instructional resources, meeting the differing needs of individuals within the class, and managing instruction and student interaction. Also demonstrate your ability to assess student learning related to the lesson, and analyze the overall strengths and weaknesses of the lesson.

Program Review

Program review represents Chapman's commitment to excellence in academic programs through periodic review of educational effectiveness. Every 5 to 7 years, program faculty members prepare a self-study report, which is reviewed by external, expert reviewers, numerous Chapman faculty governance councils and committees, and the Office of the Provost. Program review provides an opportunity for each program to reflect on its educational effectiveness as well as its contribution to the university's mission and strategic plan. The results of program review guide institutional planning, budgeting and decision-making.
