Students seeking a Master of Education degree will demonstrate their mastery of program content in the following ways. Students seeking licensure in the M.A.T. or M.A.T. in Special Education programs will earn a passing score on edTPA as evident with a passing grade in EDU550A-C. The exception to this is students seeking licensure in speech communication, which does not currently require an edTPA portfolio. Students seeking a license in speech communication will earn a passing score on the Principles of Learning and Teaching Praxis test required for their licensure area. Students seeking to add an endorsement through the M.Ed. in Literacy with Emphases in English as a Second Language program will be required to earn a passing score on the Praxis required for adding their chosen endorsement. Students seeking licensure in the M.Ed. in School Counseling program will earn a passing score on the School Counseling Praxis, and students seeking licensure in the M.Ed. Administration and Supervision program will complete the Instructional Leadership Praxis. Advisors for each program will notify students of the specified edTPA or Praxis assessment needed for their specific program of study. In order for a passing score to be counted as a graduation requirement students must earn a passing score within the first three (3) attempts of the assessment. Confirmation of passing scores must be received by the University by mid-term of the semester the student wishes to graduate and the student must graduate within six (6) years of starting his/her program.
