Stepping Out of the Shadows: Integrating a Candidate Assessment System With Campus Information Management for Data-Driven Decision Making
Unformatted Document Text:  C. ContributionOur School of Education (at a medium-sized, comprehensive public institution that has historically focused on teacher education), has worked to develop and refine an assessment system that: • Provides information about candidates’ achievement of state standards (modeled after the INTASC standards) and the domains of the School’s Conceptual Framework • Provides information about all data points including course completion and grades, grade point average, portfolios, disposition assessments, and test scores • Includes information collected at four gates (Admission, Retention, Preparing to Student Teach, and Exit) • Is built into PeopleSoft, the campus system for information management This assessment system allows faculty members to submit evaluations online and makes the link across data points, at each gate, for every student.

C. Contribution
Our School of Education (at a medium-sized, comprehensive public institution that has
historically focused on teacher education), has worked to develop and refine an
assessment system that:
Provides information about candidates’ achievement of state standards (modeled
after the INTASC standards) and the domains of the School’s Conceptual
Framework
Provides information about all data points including course completion and
grades, grade point average, portfolios, disposition assessments, and test scores
Includes information collected at four gates (Admission, Retention, Preparing to
Student Teach, and Exit)
Is built into PeopleSoft, the campus system for information management
This assessment system allows faculty members to submit evaluations online and makes
the link across data points, at each gate, for every student. Moreover, the system
aggregates and disaggregates data as needed to provide a means for demonstrating
program quality and building public trust in the value of our teacher education programs.
D. Relevance
We have a powerful model to share with other institutions who have or are considering
creating shadow systems that operate parallel to but not in conjunction with their campus
management information systems. This model was not created without institutional
resistance (which is common when change is suggested in higher education) or faculty
doubt. Yet, once faculty members discovered how easy it is to use one online system they
were convinced. The session will address the process of developing the system with
MIS staff and will demonstrate sample PeopleSoft outputs. Since PeopleSoft is a
common information management system the session should have direct relevance for
many institutions while also providing a model for integration with other campus
information management systems.
E. Implications for Action
Session participants can use the information provided to develop effective data
management system at their home institutions. The field will have a PeopleSoft-based
model for a comprehensive data system designed to meet NCATE and state (INTASC-
like) standards. The session will also suggest possible research areas related to the data
collected and analyzed through this system.
Section II: Outcomes and Methods
A. Learner/Participant Outcomes
Outcomes of this session will include:
Awareness of the value of integrating a unit assessment system with campus MIS
Understanding of a model for such integration
Ideas for working with MIS staff to develop a common system for unit
assessment
