 Call for Third Party Comments - CAEP Site Visit

The Division of Education at Queens College, City University of New York (CUNY) is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) on November 4, 2018. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the site team. Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered and should specify the party's relationship to the provider (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates).

We invite you to submit written testimony to:
1140 19th Street NW, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036
Or by email to:

Such comments must be within the specified period and based on the core tenets of CAEP accreditation standards of excellence, which recognize that:
•    In CAEP's performance-based system, accreditation is based on evidence that demonstrates that teacher candidates know the subject matter and can teach it effectively so that students learn. In the CAEP system, EPPs must prove that candidates can connect theory to practice and be effective in an actual P-12 classroom.
•    A professional education provider that is accredited by CAEP is expected to be involved in ongoing planning and evaluation; engaged in continuous assessment and development; ensure that faculty and programs reflect new knowledge, practice, and technologies; and be involved in continuous development in response to the evolving world of education and educational reform.
•    Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the respondent's relationship, if any, to the institution (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to the university for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered.

 Chalk and Wire Information

chalk wire logo.png  
The Professional Education Unit at Queens College has adopted an e-portfolio, web-based assessment management system called Chalk & Wire, to ensure that our candidates have the knowledge and skills they need to become effective practitioners, and to advance assessment for learning. When candidates are admitted to one of the undergraduate or graduate programs in the Education Unit, they may be instructed to obtain a Chalk and Wire ePortfolio subscription to submit their assignments as directed until graduation. Faculty will assess all key program assignments submitted by candidates in Chalk and Wire. We ask candidates NOT to obtain a Chalk and Wire subscription until you are specifically asked to do so by your course instructor.
