3 CAA Accreditation The Master of Science education program in speech-language pathology at the University of Central Oklahoma is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, or The CAA sets forth guidelines and requirements in the areas of administrative support, faculty and instructional staff, academic and clinical education, students, and program resources. The UCO Speech-Language Pathology program was most recently accredited in 2006 for an eight-year period. A report is submitted annually to the CAA. Disclaimer The information in this Handbook is subject to revision at any time. Subsequent versions of this Handbook will be posted to the Speech-Language Pathology program website and immediately supersede any previous versions. In any instance in which a policy in this Handbook conflicts with official policies of the College of Education & Professional Studies, Jackson College of Graduate Studies and Research, or the University, those policies would take precedence
4 Introduction Speech-Language Pathology is an exciting and challenging profession. Speech-Language Pathologists should possess strong intellect, energy, and enthusiasm for interacting with people. They must have the ability to work effectively with others as well as independently. Speech-Language Pathology is a profession that offers the flexibility to work with many different populations infants, children, and adults - in many different settings. Speech-Language Pathologists work in many different settings, including public schools, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and private practice. Speech- Language Pathology is a profession that continues to be in demand statewide and nationally. This Majors Handbook is intended to inform you of the requirements for your professional preparation as you pursue this major at the University of Central Oklahoma. Some principal requirements of this major include the following: The successful completion of a Masters degree and successful completion of the required certification examinations are necessary for employment as a fully credentialed Speech-Language Pathologist. The Masters degree program may follow a traditional undergraduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology or a degree in another area. However, the entire program must satisfy academic and practicum requirements of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. This in turn satisfies the requirements for licensure by the Oklahoma Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and teacher certification by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. This major will require meeting minimum criteria to be admitted to successive levels Entry level courses, Clinical Practicum/Senior Level Courses, Graduate Program, etc. However, admission to successive levels is typically competitive in nature as there are frequently fewer slots available than applicants. Your major academic program will ultimately require approximately 75 credit hours of coursework that is applicable to certification and licensure requirements. Many of these may be completed at the undergraduate level as part of your General Education requirements and the Speech-Language Pathology bachelor degree program or as "background prerequisite courses" for students converting with bachelor degrees from majors other than Speech-Language Pathology (Non-SLP background students). (See Individuals who have completed an undergraduate Speech-Language Pathology major at UCO should plan on six (6) semesters of graduate course work to complete their Masters degree requirements. Individuals converting from Non-SLP backgrounds should plan on eight (8) semesters, including two (2) semesters of "background prerequisite" courses and six (six) semesters in the graduate program to complete their Masters degree. Your practicum training will require the completion of a minimum of 400 supervised clock hours of experience with children and adults in a variety of settings. This will require a minimum of 5 semesters of enrollment in Clinical Practicum at the graduate level. Individuals with non-teaching bachelor degrees contemplating future employment as Speech-Language Pathologists in the public schools must complete PTE Foundations of American Education (with a field experience requiring 30 hours of observation) and SPED Teaching Individuals With Disabilities. Depending upon background coursework, such students may be advised to take PTE Developmental Psychology, Approval for teacher certification by UCO will require formal admission to Professional Teacher Education
5 Undergraduate Advisement As you pursue your undergraduate major at UCO, the Advisement Center is primarily responsible for advising you. However, you are encouraged to consult with the Speech-Language Pathology Program Director should you have any questions regarding the coursework in this major. The undergraduate degree is comprised of four major components: 1) General Education, 2) Professional Teacher Education, 3) Related Electives, and 4) Speech-Language Pathology Major Coursework. The coursework pertaining to the General Education component is listed in the undergraduate catalog. The courses and their recommended sequence for the remaining three components are provided in this Handbook. University Core Courses: Your University Core (or "lower division") component is designed to provide a broad foundation of information, knowledge, and skills relating to our social, scientific and cultural inheritance and to serve as a basis for the successful pursuit of advanced and professional studies. Professional Teacher Education: This component of the undergraduate program introduces the foundations and principles of American education. It is strongly recommended that undergraduate students complete Foundations of American Education during the sophomore year. It would be desirable to take Developmental Psychology during the sophomore year as well; otherwise, it should be taken during the first semester of the junior year.) Students should take note that both Foundations of American Education and Educational Psychology will require 30-hour field experiences. While enrolled in SLP Language Disorders you will be required to also complete 30 hours of Pre-practicum Clinical Observations. This 30 hour requirement is satisfied on campus as 15 hours of live observation in the Speech & Hearing Clinic and 15 hours of scheduled classroom video observations. Combining either Foundations of American Education or Educational Psychology with Language Disorders would result in completing 60 hours of observation; students should bear this in mind and plan their enrollments accordingly. Undergraduate Speech-Language Pathology majors are NOT required to complete an eportfolio. The eportfolio is used by other Teacher Education majors to document completion of a number of assignments required in PTE courses. All artifacts/rubrics associated with PTE, SPED, and SLP courses must be completed and retained. The items that will ultimately be included in your SLP BCC/FAD/KASA binder as you progress through the undergraduate and graduate SLP programs. Additional instructions will be provided in courses where applicable assignments occur. (Non-traditional graduate applicants those with non-slp bachelors degrees completing prerequisite courses are also not required to purchase the eportfolio.) Related Electives: This component allows traditional undergraduate bachelor degree students in SLP to be exposed to a broader range of background information pertaining to the various concepts, such as acoustics, linguistics, early childhood, etc. Other related courses will broaden understanding of life span development in humans. Still other related courses will provide information regarding various special populations, such as mentally handicapped, emotionally disturbed, or culturally diverse. The list of Related Electives on the Bachelor degree plan included in this Handbook is a partial listing of all the courses that can be applied to Related Electives. A more complete listing is also included in this Handbook or is available from the undergraduate advisor in the Advisement Center or the SLP Program Director. Any courses not listed that the student judges may relate in some way to this major can be considered for acceptance as a Related Elective by submitting a course description to the Program Director. Additional information such as course syllabi or course notes may be needed to determine whether a course is applicable. SLP Major Coursework: Please, note that the SLP major coursework occurs in a "fixed" sequence as outlined on the undergraduate course sequence sheet included in this Handbook. Once a student has been given permission to enroll in the initial set of beginning/prerequisite courses, each course then serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent course. With the exception of Foundations of Speech-Language Pathology, SLP courses are scheduled only once per academic year. If there is a schedule conflict between a major course and another course, in most cases the student should give the major SLP course priority; the non-major course may be offered in multiple, semesters where the SLP course will be offered only annually. Students are, of course, encouraged to consult with the undergraduate program advisor in the Advisement Center or the SLP Program Director when they are uncertain about the course schedule. No permission is required for Foundations of SLP, however, a minimum GPA of 2.75 is required for permission to enroll in the first set of major/prerequisite courses (Normal Language Development, Acoustic Phonetics, Speech & Hearing Mechanism). The program will admit students based on their GPAs and maintain a waiting list for students whose GPAs do not meet this requirement and admit them on a space available basis as changes occur

9 9 Admission Requirements and Criteria in Speech-Language Pathology Permission to Enroll in Speech-Language Pathology Beginning/Prerequisite Coursework Students who plan to begin the Speech-Language Pathology course sequence as undergraduates or those who have previously earned a bachelor degree in another major must request permission to enroll in the beginning sequence of courses offered in the Fall semester. These courses are prerequisite to and lead to the Spring prerequisite courses. The Foundations of Speech-Language Pathology course is offered both Fall and Spring semesters and does not require permission to enroll. It should be taken prior to or concurrent with the remaining junior level/prerequisite courses as listed below. Any Full Semester SLP 4003 Foundations of SLP Fall Semester only SLP 4724 Speech and Hearing Mechanism SLP 4014 Normal Language Development SLP 4143 Acoustic Phonetics Spring Semester only SLP 4223 Audiology SLP 4054 Language Disorders SLP 4673 Articulation Disorders Required Form and Transcripts: Students must submit a Request for Permission to Enroll in SLP Beginning Sequence Courses form along with current transcripts showing all completed coursework. Forms with transcripts should be submitted to the Program Coordinator during the second half of the Spring semester. The form is available the link on this page, in the SLP program hallway, and from the SLP undergraduate enrollment advisor in the Enrollment Center in the Nigh University Center. Required Minimum GPA: Permission to enroll is based on a minimum 2.75 GPA overall or in the last 30 hours to gain entrance to the major/prerequisite courses. Permissions are prioritized based on GPA; that is, those with higher GPAs are given permission earlier. The higher of the student s total GPA or last 30 hours GPA will be used. During April-May, those students with a 3.50 GPA will be given permission; other students will be maintained on a waiting list. The criterion is lowered to 3.25 in June and 3.15 in July until the classes are filled. Because the SLP beginning sequence courses frequently fill up, students should not wait for permission to enroll in the SLP courses to enroll in other courses that they need. It is wise to take a "worst case scenario" approach to be sure of getting enrolled in other courses that will help the student in making overall progress in his or her academic program. Required English Proficiency: Although the UCO Speech-Language Pathology program and the university welcome and value diversity, the program and its clinic operate in a predominately English speaking community. Applicants who are not native speakers of English must meet the minimum university and graduate college requirements as indicated in current university catalogs for proficiency in English. In addition, an oral interview with the program coordinator is required for initial permission. Students who exhibit cultural or linguistic differences in their use of English must eventually demonstrate the ability to use and model Standard English. With consultation, the program may require remedial courses or individual treatment to improve English proficiency prior to formal admission to the graduate program.
10 10 Admission to Teacher Education (TE): This is required for undergraduate majors and optional for non-slp background graduate students. This process places on file with the UCO Teacher Services office evidence that applicants meet the university s minimum requirements to obtain a teaching certificate upon completion of the Masters degree. Applications are available in ED207 at the beginning of each full semester. The requirements are: Completion of 40 credit hours. A minimum GPA of Documentation of 30 hours of experience with children. (Field experience associated with Found s of American Educ fulfills this requirement.) Passing score on the Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET) Undergraduate program students ONLY. Interview and advisement by a program faculty member. Teacher Educaton Notes: 1. Although Speech-Language Pathology is not considered a Teacher Education major, admission to Teacher Education is required of all undergraduate Speech-Language Pathology majors. 2. Undergraduate Speech-Language Pathology majors are NOT required to purchase the eportfolio for Professional Teacher Education. Speech-Language Pathology students must complete and retain ALL artifacts and rubrics resulting from assignments in each PTE, SPED, and SLP course. 3. Undergraduate Speech-Language Pathology majors are NOT required to take the Oklahoma Professional Teacher Examination (OPTE) or the Oklahoma Subject Area Test (OSAT). HOWEVER, changing to a teacher education major (Elementary Education, Early Childhood, Special Education, etc.) will require passing these examinations before Student Teaching is permitted in those areas. Admission to Senior Level Coursework and Clinical Practicum: Undergraduate students who expect to complete senior level coursework and wish to participate in Clinical Practicum in Speech-Language Pathology will be required to apply during the Spring semester of the junior year. Required application materials include: 1. Senior Coursework/Clinical Practicum Application (available from program secretary). 2. Official transcript (including grades for preceding Fall semester) and an Advisor s transcript if coursework has been completed at and transferred from other colleges or universities. 3. Interpersonal Skills and Scholastic Abilities Recommendation forms completed by three college-level instructors from whom coursework has been taken. At least two of the three MUST be Speech-Language Pathology/Audiology faculty, the third may be a college instructor in another subject area. Senior Admission Notes: Ranking and selection of candidates by Speech-Language Pathology faculty is guided by the following criteria: 1. Minimum grade point average of 3.0 in 24 credit hours of Speech-Language Pathology coursework with a minimum grade of "C" in all major coursework. A student continuing in the major must repeat any major course in which a grade lower than "C" was received. 2. Minimum grade point average of 2.75 in all completed coursework or 2.75 in the last 30 hours of coursework completed. 3. Satisfactory evidence of scholastic ability, interpersonal skills, and personal character based on faculty recommendations (i.e., a minimum average of 3.0 on the three recommendations forms). 4. Students will be notified of their status according to the following categories: a. Accepted Without Qualification. Students meeting all criteria will be encouraged to continue with senior level courses and given highest priority for inclusion in clinical practicum. b. Accepted With Qualification. Students who fail to meet one of the above criteria may be encouraged to continue senior level courses with the qualification that a deficiency may jeopardize future acceptance into the graduate program. These students will be encouraged to speak with faculty to determine what should be done to enhance their chances for admission to the graduate program.
11 11 c. Not Recommended for the Major. Students who fail to meet two or more of the above criteria or present other concerns will be advised of the following options: Students with deficient overall grade point averages may complete additional undergraduate coursework or retake courses in which a D or F was received to meet the required grade point average. Students with a deficient grade point average in Speech-Language Pathology coursework may retake those courses in which grades of "C" or lower were obtained. Although the C cannot be replaced on the university transcript, the program will use the later grade in courses that have been repeated in calculating the major GPA. Students may consider majors other than Speech-Language Pathology. 5. Selection for participation/enrollment in Clinical Practicum a. A limited number of senior students will be selected to participate/enroll in clinical practicum. The number will be based on the number of clients and amount of supervisory presence available after the projected practicum requirements of all graduate program students have been satisfied. b. To be eligible to participate in clinical practicum as a senior, the student must have completed the required pre-practicum clinical observations. Students should understand that while there is no required minimum for a given disorder or age group, students must observe a variety and range of clinical procedures related to each disorder area (regardless of age group) and each age group (regardless of disorders) as well as including evaluation and treatment procedures. For undergraduate students completing this requirement in the UCO bachelor degree program, this process is administered through the Language Disorders course taken in the Spring semester of the Junior year. c. Seniors not included in Clinical Practicum during one or both semesters of the Senior year will have the credit hours of Practicum waived from their Bachelor degree requirements. Sufficient credit hours from other coursework must be taken to complete the overall 124 credit hours required for graduation. Admission to the University and the Jackson College of Graduate Studies and Research Admission to the University and to the College of Graduate Studies and Research (JCGSR) will be required of all students to be admitted to the Speech-Language Pathology graduate program. Applicants should obtain all necessary materials and follow the procedures outlined in the current UCO Graduate Catalog obtained through the office or website of the JCGSR. Applicants must be aware that admission to the University and the JCGSR is separate from admission to a particular degree program. Admission to the University and JCGSR does NOT guarantee admission to a graduate program, including the Speech-Language Pathology graduate program. Students should note that separate sets of application materials (applications, transcripts, recommendations etc.) will be required for the JCGSR and the Speech-Language Pathology program. Students who hold a bachelor degree in another area will be required to complete or be in the final (Spring) semester of completing the prerequisite leveling courses to apply for admission to the UCO Speech-Language Pathology program. (See Permission to Enroll in Beginning/Prerequisite SLP Coursework. ) Once a student has been admitted to the Graduate College and has enrolled in the prerequisite courses, they do not need to re-apply to the Graduate College when applying to the Speech-Language Pathology graduate program. Admission to the Speech-Language Pathology Graduate Program In addition to the general requirements for admission to the University and JCGSR, prospective students entering the Speech-Language Pathology graduate program must have completed a minimum of 24 credit hours of Speech- Language Pathology prerequisite coursework (listing follows). These prerequisite courses may or may not be available for graduate credit, depending upon the student's standing with the JCGSR. Students will not be allowed to enroll in any Speech-Language Pathology course without proper prerequisites and/or program permission. Students may not enroll in or participate in Practicum until formally accepted into the program.
12 12 Graduate applicants intending to pursue the Master degree in Speech-Language Pathology must meet the following criteria: 1. Receive a Bachelor's Degree from an accredited college or university prior to entering the graduate program. 2. Complete the 24 credit hours of prerequisite courses at UCO or their equivalents from another university with a minimum GPA of Meet one of the following minimum requirements: a. Attain a 3.00 or higher grade point average in all speech-language pathology coursework. b. Attain a 2.75 or higher grade point average in all hours attempted or, c. Attain a 2.75 or higher grade point average in the last 60 hours attempted, or d. Earn a minimum of 6 graduate hours at another accredited institution with a 3.00 or higher grade point average in all graduate hours attempted. Graduate Admission Notes: 1. Application packets containing all application items for the graduate program must be delivered or postmarked by January Application materials will be processed during February. 3. Optional admission interviews with program faculty will be offered during February usually in the second or third week. 4. Applicants will be notified of the results of the admission process and their status with the graduate program as early as possible in March. 5. The admissions process may place applicants in one of several categories: a. Full acceptance for admission into the graduate program. b. Designation as an alternate candidate for admission into the graduate program based on meeting all minimum requirements for admission. Should an applicant who has been invited to attend the program decline the invitation, the program may contact alternates to offer them acceptance into the graduate program. c. Acceptance into the graduate program as a probationary candidate for candidates who fail to meet one or several of the minimum requirements for admission to the program. This would occur with probationary conditions as set forth by the graduate program based on individual deficiencies. Full acceptance into the graduate program would only be granted by the faculty following satisfaction of the conditions set forth for probationary admission. This would occur only when an insufficient number of fully qualified applicants who meet all the requirements are available to fill all available slots. Required Graduate Program Application Packet includes the following: Application materials are available on the SLP Enrollment and Admissions webpage. A completed program application form, including the application checklist used as a coversheet for the application itself. Interpersonal Skills and Scholastic Abilities recommendation forms submitted by three college level instructors with whom the student has completed college level coursework; at least two of the three must include Speech-Language Pathology/Audiology faculty. Current official university transcripts from all colleges or universities attended showing all college level coursework completed by the applicant.
13 13 Graduate Advisement The SLP Program Director is primarily responsible for graduate advisement. The steps in advisement in the graduate program relate to the admissions requirements for the Jackson College of Graduate Studies and Research (JCGSR) and the Speech-Language Pathology graduate program. Although admission to Professional Teacher Education is optional for those applying to the graduate program with a non-teaching background, it is strongly recommended that individuals consider doing so as this opens up many additional opportunities for employment immediately following completion of the Masters degree. Admission to Teacher Education with Non-Teaching Backgrounds: Applicants with undergraduate degrees in non-teaching majors who may want to take employment in Oklahoma public schools upon graduation have several options. To obtain an Oklahoma Teaching Certificate immediately following graduation, SLP graduate students have to complete Foundations of American Education and be admitted to Teacher Education. In addition, Teaching Individuals With Disabilities must also be completed, either concurrent with prerequisite courses or fit in along with graduate program coursework. Depending upon the applicant s background, Developmental Psychology may also be recommended as a basic prerequisite to SLP coursework. Alternately, a graduate who decides to work in the public schools can apply to the SDE for teacher certification based on holding a current ASHA CCC. Please note: Foundations of American Education may be taken as part of the prerequisite coursework prior to admission to the graduate program OR as part of the graduate program. If taken with prerequisite courses, it works best to take it along with Language Disorders in the Spring semester; that way, the required field experience can be combined with the pre-practicum observations required as part of Language Disorders. The other (recommended) option is to take Foundations of American Education concurrent with the Public School Internship in the second year of the graduate program. In this case, the required field experience is completed as part of the internship assignment. The Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET) is NOT required for students who have been admitted to the Speech-Language Pathology graduate program. It is strongly recommended that graduate students with bachelor degrees in non-teaching areas apply for admission to TE after being admitted to the graduate Speech- Language Pathology program. If the student has not otherwise obtained 30 hours of public school field experience, the initial hours obtained as part of the PS Internship during the second year of the masters program can be used to satisfy this requirement. These must be logged and submitted with the application for admission to Teacher Education. Admission to Jackson College of Graduate Studies and Research and the Graduate Program: Applicants should be aware that acceptance into the Jackson College of Graduate Studies and Research (JCGSR) DOES NOT guarantee acceptance into the Speech-Language Pathology program. These are two separate processes requiring separate admissions materials. Students with Speech-Language Pathology undergraduate degrees (or their equivalents) will be generally considered for admission into the Graduate SLP Program based on two conditions: 1) The undergraduate degree includes courses that are equivalent to the program s prerequisite coursework; and 2) that the student qualifies for acceptance into the JCGSR. Students converting from undergraduate degrees in areas other than Speech-Language Pathology ( Non- SLP backgrounds ) may be admitted to the JCGSR prior to or during the period in which they are completing Speech-Language Pathology prerequisite coursework. These students should consult with the Program Director to map out at least a tentative sequence courses that will satisfy their Basic Sciences requirements and their SLP prerequisite courses. Admission to the graduate SLP program will be considered during the Spring semester if the student has completed or is enrolled in any remaining prerequisite courses. However, they will not be formally admitted to the graduate SLP Program to begin graduate level coursework until they have successfully completed the minimum 24 credit hours of Speech-Language Pathology background prerequisite coursework.
14 14 SLP Class Plans, Degree Plans and the Graduate College: After being accepted into the Graduate SLP Program, the Program Director will work in conjunction with each student to develop the student s Class Plan. This maps out for each student the exact sequence of courses to be taken during the six semesters of the graduate program. Class Plans are maintained in a database that allows generating lists of students who are projected to enroll in each class each semester, which allows tracking students compliance with their planned enrollments and their progress within the program. During the first Fall semester, the Program Director will develop a Degree Plan for each student in consultation with the student. The Degree Plan incorporates the student s past coursework, indicating completed undergraduate SLP courses and courses that satisfy Basic Science requirements (Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Behavioral/Social Sciences, and Statistics). The student s projected graduate course and practicum enrollments are indicated for the Graduate College to evaluate for completion of the masters degree. Degree Plans are maintained on a calculated database that classifies course credits according to basic sciences, basic processes, professional, and practicum requirements to determine that all minimum requirements will be satisfied. The original Degree in Plan will be maintained by the Program Director and copies will be provided to the student and the JCGSR. Please, note that once the student s Degree Plan has been developed and submitted to the JCGSR, the student must follow the plan exactly as written. If it is necessary to alter the plan, the student MUST consult with the Program Director to determine whether the changes would affect his or her ability to meet certification and licensure requirements. It may also be necessary to forward a revised Degree Plan to the JCGSR, as any discrepancies between the plan and the courses on your transcript at the time the student applies for graduation may cause approval to graduate to be delayed or denied. Clinical Practicum Requirements for the Graduate Degree: Completion of the masters degree program will require a minimum of five semesters of graduate level practicum enrollment that must result in meeting the minimum clock hour requirements for ASHA certification and state licensure. These requirements include a minimum of 30 hours of pre-practicum clinical observation hours obtained during the Language Disorders course during the junior year for traditional undergraduate students or the second semester of prerequisite courses for non-slp background students. In total, 400 clock hours that include experience with evaluating and treating adults and children with speech, language, and hearing disorders in a variety of settings. A minimum of five semesters of graduate level practicum will be required regardless of any undergraduate practicum enrollments and will require a minimum of 12 graduate credit hours of practicum enrollment associated with identifiable clinical assignments. These semesters will occur as scheduled on the Degree Plan developed and signed by the student in collaboration with the Clinical Coordinator and the Program Director. Any disruption in the planned sequence will result in the requirement of additional semesters beyond those required on the original Degree Plan. For example, to compensate for withdrawal from a full semester of practicum an additional an additional full semester of practicum enrollment may be required, as determined by the Clinic Coordinator and Program Director. Clinical practicum experiences must include assignments in at least three different settings that result in a minimum of 50 clock hours in each. At a minimum, the graduate program will require clinical assignments in the UCO Speech and Hearing Clinic, a medical setting, and a public school setting (unless prior employment as a speech-language pathologist in the public schools can be documented). Assignment at off-campus facilities will require a minimum of 100 clock hours accumulated in on-campus assignments and a minimum grade of B in the preceding semester. In addition, the program will strive throughout each student s program to arrange varied experiences through assignments to other facilities including preschools for the hearing impaired, skilled nursing facilities, and facilities for adult developmentally delayed, among others. In all these assignments the program will monitor the accumulation of experiences with diverse populations and make assignments based on expanding the student s exposure to the greatest degree of diversity possible. The development of clinical skills and proficiencies as defined by the ASHA Standards for the CCC will be verified through completion of the Basic Competencies Checklist throughout the student s practicum assignments.
15 15 Capstone Experiences: During the second year of the graduate program you will be required to complete two capstone experiences an Evaluating Clinical Effectiveness research project and the graduate program Comprehensive Examination. The Evaluating Clinical Effectiveness clinical research project is integrated with a clinical practicum assignment, typically during the same semester as the Public School Internship. (This is primarily because designing, executing such projects requires a number of weeks, and as clients, public school students are not as transitory as patients in medical facilities. These clinical research projects are normally developed based single-subject treatment designs (discussed in SLP4713 Clinical Methods in SLP) and intended to document the efficacy of a specific treatment approach or procedure. Students work in collaboration with the Cooperating SLP in their internship assignments and his or her assigned faculty advisor to develop and execute the project. Projects are formally described in a APA-style paper and presented during a poster session at the end of each full semester. The graduate program Comprehensive Exam is taken during the final semester of the graduate program. The Comprehensive Examination will be scheduled approximately three weeks before the ETS Praxis examination (the ASHA national examination ). The Praxis exam is required to obtain the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence, the Oklahoma Board of Examiners License, and is accepted for the Oklahoma Teaching Certificate. (The Oklahoma Subject Area Test is also optional for obtaining the Oklahoma Teaching Certificate.) Following the Comprehensive Exam students will be given the overall result and an item analysis of their performance which indicates how many questions were answered correctly and incorrectly for each course/subject area. Three objectives are addressed through implementing this process. First, the program hopes to identify any gaps in student preparation so that these can be remedied prior to graduation. Second, we hope to prepare students for the Praxis Examination (or alternately the OSAT examination). In this way, the Comprehensive Examination is considered both diagnostic and remedial. Third, the Comprehensive Examination is intended to be a program "self-assessment" tool for evaluating our program and the preparation we provide to our students. Dates for administering the Comprehensive Examinations will be set at the start of the academic year. A program review will be scheduled about three weeks prior to the Comprehensive Examination, which will precede the Praxis Examination by about three weeks. Application for Graduation: At the end of the Fall semester before your final semester, you should apply to the JCGSR to graduate. As mentioned above, it is important that you be certain at that time that you have followed the degree plan as submitted. Any variance will cause your application for graduation to be delayed until the discrepancy can be clarified. The Jackson College for Graduate Studies and Research will contact the graduate program to determine if all academic and practicum requirements will be completed prior to the end of that semester before approving each student s graduation. The graduate program retains the right to place a hold on any student s degree should any circumstance prevent the student from completing all program academic and practicum requirements. ASHA Certification, Oklahoma Licensure, Teacher Certification: The Masters degree, once received, is a document that represents many long months of dedication and tireless effort. However, although it may be disturbing to express it this way, it is only suitable for framing unless it leads to credentials that actually qualify someone for employment in the profession. It will be necessary to obtain an Oklahoma Teaching Certificate to accept employment in a public school. Employment in any facility that can be considered private sector, whether a hospital or a private practice group, will require obtaining the Oklahoma Board of Examiners license. Although it is a professional credential (not a legal credential like the teaching certificate and Oklahoma license), holding the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) is desired, if not required, by most employers. As graduate students approach the end of the Masters degree program, the forms and instructions for obtaining these credentials will be distributed.
16 16 ASHA Knowledge and Skills Assessment (KASA) and UCO Formative Assessment Document (FAD): Beginning January 1, 2005, all masters graduates applying for the ASHA CCC are required to submit the verification form signed by the Program Director that indicates they have demonstrated the knowledge and skills required for the ASHA CCC. ASHA developed the ASHA Knowledge and Skills Assessment (KASA) instrument, which outlines the knowledge (concepts, principles, and terminology) and skills (procedures, applications, tasks, etc.) that are central to the conduct of our profession. Each student's development in professional knowledge areas and clinical skills is to be documented and maintained by the program. To serve this purpose, the UCO Speech-Language Pathology program has developed the Formative Assessment Document (FAD) to track each student's development in the knowledge proficiencies. This instrument is based on classroom performance, course artifacts, experiences with culturally diverse populations, and participation in professional meetings, among other requirements. The Basic Competencies Checklist has been used in the program and has evolved since the 1980s to verify clinicians' proficiency in a variety of specific skills and procedures. This instrument will be distributed and developed beginning with each student s entrance into Clinical Practicum, either as a senior or first year graduate student.following each full semester, students will submit their FAD/BCC binder for tracking and verification by the Program Director. Completion of requirements contained in the FAD/BCC binder represents the knowledge and skill proficiencies required for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence. The completed KASA verification form, signed by the Program Director is required when applying for the ASHA CCC. Completion of the knowledge and skill proficiencies based on ASHA standards for the Certificate of Clinical Competence is required to obtain verification from the Program Director to obtain the ASHA CCC. SLP Program Formative and Summative Assessments (see Summative-Formative Chart, p. 18) The Speech-Language Pathology program relies on two types of assessments Formative and Summative - to evaluate the development and learning of its students. Formative assessment of knowledge areas is tracked through student development and learning as indicated though course examinations and assignment artifacts and rubrics. The cumulative formation of knowledge outcomes over individual courses is tracked through verification in Formative Assessment Document following each full semester until their completion is verified by the Program Director. Progression of clinical skills is tracked throughout practicum and internships assignments through demonstration of individual competencies outlined on the Basic Competencies Checklist. Clinical supervisors and Cooperating SLPs verify individual competencies as they are demonstrated and their ultimate completion is verified by the Clinic Coordinator. Two types of summative assessment occur as students approach the culmination of their graduate program. These are also described elsewhere in this Handbook as the program s capstone experiences. The Evaluating Clinical Effectiveness clinical research project, which occurs during the second year, demonstrates the student s ability to integrate understanding of information related to normal aspects, clinical disorders, clinical treatments, research principles, and professional writing. The Comprehensive Examination, of course, represents a summary evaluation of students understanding and application of knowledge accumulated though courses and practicum experiences. Matrix: SLP Program and ASHA CCC Standards (see Matrix table, p. 22) The matrix table on a following page illustrates the manner in which the 2014 ASHA Standards for the Certificate of Clinical are addressed thought the learner outcomes associated with the courses and practicum experiences in the UCO Speech-Language Pathology program.
