1 Response ID:42; Data Instructional Program Criteria and Template Name of Person Completing this Report : Ann T Halvorsen and Linda Smetana Title of Person Completing this Report : Professors Special Education College or Unit : Dept of Ed Psych, CEAS Report No. : CEAS 6 Programs Included : Special Education Mild-Moderate and Moderate-Severe Disabilities credentials and Masters degrees Total number of service courses 4 2. Please use Tables 1-6 to prepare your write-ups for the questions in this background information section (up to 250 words in total). The Education Specialist CTC and NCATE-accredited post-baccalaureate Credentials/Masters have prepared teachers/teacher leaders for multiple educational contexts providing instructional services to students with mild-moderate-severe disabilities for >30 years. Most candidates enter through our unique dual-credential TED/SPED program, earning both Preliminary Multiple Subject and Education Specialist credentials: Mild-Moderate/Moderate-Severe Disabilities. TED-SPEDers may accept Specialist Intern teaching positions with district partners in second year. Candidates accepted as SPED-only must possess Multiple/Single Subject credentials; may teach in Intern positions completing same requirements as student-teachers across seven quarters. Since 2008, CTC-required program changes implemented: elimination of former Level II advanced credentials; infusing that content in new Preliminary; our revisions increased overlap across Specialist credentials; decreased separate specialization coursework. Advanced coursework overlaps significantly with Masters degrees. Programs are field-based with general/special education student teaching/internship quarterly and minimum one-quarter for Masters-only candidates. Resources have decreased from five to 2.5 tenure-track faculty in same period with unreplaced retirements. History of competitively-awarded, federal personnel preparation grants through 8/2012 with student stipends augmented programs with > $300,000/year since 2008, and state CTC Internship grant >32,000/year. Both ended 8/2013, no new funding available. Seventy-four students currently enrolled across credential/masters programs. Additional in Service Courses:12 Liberal Studies undergraduates take Minor coursework 4 courses/year; Communication-Disorder Masters candidates-one required SPED course. All SPED courses except one of these now offered only once/year. Two hybrid courses; more planned. On-site fieldwork/intern supervision with Master Teachers, most are program graduates. Program recognized by CTC with invited presentation Graduates obtaining significant recognition locally and beyond; details below. 4. Criterion 1 I.

Graduates of CSUEB will demonstrate expertise and integration of ideas, methods, theory and practice in a specialized discipline of study. other professionals in a range of elementary/secondary schools in diverse districts across Bay Area (SA 6860/6880 above); Group collaborative projects occur in multiple courses i.e. SA - EPSY 6129 for professional development; 6137;Assessment (6131/6142) require collaboration/communication skills. UAOs 1,2,3,6,7 and CTC standards as noted-all graduates complete PACT for California Teachers demonstrating CTC standards and CEAS/EPSY social justice mission with English Learners and across diverse populations including those with disabilities; must demonstrate ILO in context of >1000 hours student teaching/internships in special/general education See above re ILO 2 and 3: UAO 3/CTC Collaboration standards are assessed through, for example, SA 6129; comprehensive student teaching CSUEB supervisor evaluations for 6860/6862/6880 and in Internships 6770, Team assignments e.g. SA 6137 Behavior Analysis and Plan; all SA Student Assessments 6131/6142; 6206/07 Case Management /Professional Practice team assignments and in ongoing course groupwork in person and virtually. UAO 1-4,7, CTC standards correspond: Graduates complete Special Education Law-Program Design 5126 with analysis of individual student programs (IEP) and design IEPs to ensure alignment with law and equity as well as evidence-based practices use; work as change agents within schools, demonstrated by graduate data; fulfill hundreds of unpaid service hours as student teachers;complete e.g. Service Learning assignment UAOs 4,6 and all CTC standards correspond: Credential Graduates demonstrate through PACT and SPED Signature Assignments above, (majority of which Masters-only students complete along with their Thesis); all course assignments and exams, RICA statewide Reading Instruction assessment; Mastery score on final student teaching evaluations (6880); Masters-only candidates ( not completing credentials) successfully complete at least one quarter supervised student teaching. II. Shared Strategic Commitments: (30%) Special Education alignments with SSC: Program has brought nearly 1 million in external funds in this 5 year period, 65% supported student stipends, mentors, increased opportunities for broader diversity of students; increased sped teachers ( # 2,3,4). Current Internship partnerships with 28 districts/6 counties increasing collaboration, available trained sped teachers(2,3,7); innovative teaching (1,8) as seen in faculty and graduate evaluation data, hybrid course offerings, publications; ongoing feedback loop with Advisory Committee of graduates/master Teachers, students, school district personnel, parents of students with disabilities;( 2,3,4,5,7,8); Faculty contributions (SSC 2,7,5) as: members of statewide non-profit boards in field; volunteer reviewers for CTC accrediting panels, statewide and district/school task forces and committees; and faculty scholarship; successful grants writing over 2 decades (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8). 5.

Service Courses- We offer four: one EPSY 5021 for all Communication Disorders candidates; four -5021,5125,5136,5126- that Liberal Studies SPED Option/Minor undergraduates complete. Please note coding issues for Special Ed post-graduate candidates distorting our IR Appendix numbers. The combined Year 1-2 SPED programs have 74 candidates enrolled Fall 2013 in Masters and credential programs. Over 30 of these don't appear in CSUEB SPED numbers because system lacks double-coding. These students are in TED-SPED concurrent, collaborative dual credential program, and are listed as TED-only not as EPSY-SPED and TED students, taking coursework in both.faculty and Deans have sought correction of this since EXTERNAL NEED: Need for SPED teachers is high in CA. EDD data in Appendix 3 inaccurate. Dr. Sandy,Executive Director CTC stated that California prepares half the number of SPED teachers needed(july,2013).while need decreased in general education , SPED teacher needs continue steady/rising. CTC Data reported to CA legislature (April, 2013) show that 6% of all teachers are retiring/year,up from 2% average.this equals 3000 special ed teachers/year. K-12 Enrollment data project increase of 90,000 K-12 students by 2021.(CFTL,2011),10,000 needing Special Education teachers % of our graduates annually are fully employed for at least past 5 years. All second year candidates could accept Specialist Internship positions; 35% do.internship grants to IHEs/LEAS were discontinued Fall, 2013 which may result in higher numbers of untrained sped teachers on permits. In , CA had 2500 special education teachers with 'interim documents" i.e. short term permits; additional 2000 'mis-assigned.'(7/2013). Full citations for sources available. II. California State Jobs Projections for Each Program (35%) Programs TOTAL Jobs for each program from worksheet in Appendix 3 1 Special Education Teachers

5 B. Please discuss the selections you made for the total jobs in your worksheet in Appendix 3 See D. above.data-appendix 3 inaccurate. California Commission-Teacher Credentialing 4/2013 report to legislature and published comments by CTC Director, Dr. Sandy (7/2013) indicated 3668 Education Specialist teachers newly credentialed annually is inadequate; Sandy reported 2500 special educators held only 'interim documents' with another 2000 "mis-assigned' in 12-13,equalling need for 4500 qualified teachers, beyond 3668 prepared annually positions listed is a conservative annual need estimate. Examples-current need: Third week October: faculty received requests from three districts: West Contra Costa, San Francisco and Oakland for multiple unfilled positions. OUSD and WCCUSD each hired 40 special educators for 13-14, just two districts of 100 in 9-counties. Note also: Education Specialist credentials are designated for teaching ages Jobs titles vary by school district; credential titles used here. 6. Criterion 3 1a. List average teaching evaluation scores (average for questions 1-8 of the teaching evaluation questionnaire) for all program faculty in Fall, Winter and Spring Quarters of the academic year.

Easily moveable furniture important for group./collaborative activities. Welcome addition would be Smart Boards large enough for classwide viewing;teacher candidates need to learn evidence-based instructional uses. These are increasingly common K-12. Assessment tools and instructional applications critical to preparation. Classrooms with green blackboards need upgrade to whiteboards.ceas consulting librarian and online library resources are tremendous asset,critically important; need for broader selection of educational video-streaming. Note: students comment that restroom facilities poor; e.g. never updated on AE 3rd floor in at least 25 years; sends negative message. 3.

Masters degree elective course in School Climate and Service Learning.SPED has 28 school district Internship partners across six counties; can hire CSUEB candidates. 4. Assessment of learning outcomes; list/describe evidence for the following (up to 150 words): In addition to SPED Unit Improvement Plans based on UAOs (see ILOs), each credential program submits CTC-required Biennial data- based Reports with improvement plans based on analysis of candidates' performance on Signature Assignments, and using graduate, exit survey data, Advisory Committee input and our own Curricular Retreats. For example,9/2013 reports included these goals: 1- Moderate-Severe Disabilities: Increased focus on management and logistical/organizational/resource competencies through Professional Practices (6207) coursework, corollary case-management assignments paired with full time student teaching, and 2-Enhance introduction to Transition practices and functional skill curriculum in first course (5136) through Community Environments inventory; in advanced 6129 through Transition Plan development (MM/MS Disabilities).3. Mild-Moderate Disabilities:3-Improve Assessment Case Study Data through increased depth-breadth of formal and informal assessments employed;activities identifying culturally sensitive test items and analysis of norming. Each of these examples is tied to the relevant CTC standards for the credential(s)-15 in common and several additional for each specialization. 5. Student success; list/describe the following (up to 100 words): Ten-30 hired as Specialist interns/year, part/full-time during program, 28 district(lea) Intern partners, >90% Interns hired by same LEA upon graduation.graduate achievements:minimum one graduate/year is Teacher of Year by LEAs.Multiple graduates have teacher leadership/mentor roles.ted-sped recent graduate role highlights: Assistant Principal; Director of Special Services; Specialist - NoCA Diagnostic Center; Instructional Coordinator; District Program Specialists.

Five TED- SPED graduates since 2008 teach at Willard MS- Berkeley USD, one of six schools nationwide just selected as a Knowledge Site for study by SWIFT, $25 million 5-year federal grant on inclusive education.

9 7. Criterion 4 A. You are given "% Difference" value over a 5 year period, comparing your program SFR data with systemwide averages for your program. If your program SFR is higher than the systemwide for a given year, notice that the value is presented as a positive ("+") percentage. If it is presented as a negative percentage ("-"), your program SFR for that year is lower than the systemwide average. The resulting four values are then averaged for you. Transfer the appropriate values to the template as specified. Transfer the average change SFR for lower division, upper division, and graduate SFR to the table below. Transfer Data from Table 16. Change SFR Lower Division 0 Upper Division 0 Graduate 25% B. In this section you will be provided with data in Table 16 that indicate any trend of your program SFR relative to the systemwide average for your program. This is presented as the number of times in 5 years that your program SFR has exceeded the systemwide SFR for your program. Transfer the trend for lower division, upper division, and graduate SFR to the table below. Transfer Data from Table 16. Trend - Number of Years Program SFR exceeded Systemwide SFR Lower Division Upper Division Graduate 4 II. Instructional Costs per FTES (Department Total Annual Instructional Costs/FTES College Year) (25%) Department Name Instructional cost per FTES Increase in instructional cost per FTES Department EPSY $ % III. Narrative (up to 250 Words) (50%) The data reflect Department costs, not specific programs. This is critical to note when examining Table 16 SFR trends. In addition to SPED, multi-disciplinary EPSY-perhaps the only such CSUEB Department- houses School Psychology,School and Clinical Counseling, Marriage-FamilyTherapy disciplines with their licenses/credentials/masters; it's impossible to report on one EPSY program from these data.that said, there are several areas associated with Special Education cost-lowering: 1-Two tenure-track faculty retired ,not yet replaced; 2. Of three TT remaining, one is.5 FERP; 3. Supervision support ratios for candidates in Internships/student teaching/fieldwork were reduced by CEAS during time period; 4.CTC-required new standards in 2010 and revisions deleted previous SPED Level II advanced credentials and

10 changed Level I; this led to new Preliminary Education Specialist Credentials in Mild-Moderate and Moderate-Severe Disabilities, which we reframed to have increased overlap and decreased number of separate specialization courses. In addition, this cost-lowering occurred despite the fact that the FTE may be further affected by the system's inability to double-code our students who are completing the dual credential Teacher Education-Special Education program, enrolled in SPED courses throughout the 7 quarters, but coded as Teacher Education (TED) candidates throughout the two years, unless they decide to apply for the Masters in SPED. Thus dozens are uncounted in EPSY totals annually. We have 74 currently-enrolled students across our SPED programs; 34 are not in totals. In addition, during the reporting period, SPED had a series of annual state Internship support grants and federal personnel preparation grants funding/lowering part of supervision costs. 8. Criterion 5 I. Use of Existing Resources (Up to 125 words) Since 2008 tenured faculty has declined from 5 to 2.5. Tenured faculty teach core and credential authorization-specific courses; adjunct faculty serve as field supervisors; teach introductory coursework. With exception of EPSY 5021(also a service course), one section of each course is offered annually. Revised program structure increased core courses for all candidates; decreased credential-specific courses. Master s program overlaps significantly with advanced level credential courses. Professional collaboration with district partners and graduates results in recruitment of candidates and on-site mentor/master teachers. Program coordinators responsibilities include: review candidates performance; recruitment, fieldwork placements, review Master Teachers, supervisors, lecturers performance, supervisor assignment, communication/agreements with school districts, maintain advisory committee,curricular review processes, cultivation of internships, accreditation program documentation, and contracted teaching responsibilities. Growth possible, if larger core class sections/lengthen program. II. Impact of Declining Resources (Up to 125 words) Programs operate now with fewer tenure-track faculty than have had since 1984,which strains faculty resources for recruitment, grant-writing, research, ongoing community partnerships and critical collaborative efforts. Additional decline would reduce the number of candidates prepared and thus the number of qualified teachers for school districts across Bay Area counties. Resource reduction would decrease numbers and time for candidate observations and consultations in fieldwork/intern placements. Thus, quality and quantity of support for candidates competency development would be diminished. New CTC-required increased Intern supervision mandates (2014) couldn t be met and Internship options and partnerships with districts would likely be curtailed or eliminated. Might need to lengthen program beyond current seven quarters (offering even fewer courses/year) and/or raise class sizes above current in many credential/masters courses. III. Impact of Augmentation (Up to 125 words) -Enable faculty to pursue and obtain additional grant sources to match decades of external program support through of > $300,000/year for student stipends, mentoring, increasing Intern supervision requirements, innovative course development. -Develop e.g. resident student teaching model including co-teaching placements with local school districts; mentors to strengthen candidate preparation. -Develop increased hybrid and weekend credential/ Master s level offerings to attract new students. -Acquisition of instructional materials and technology for candidate use in field placements and for instructors use. -Additional resources would enable improved recruitment -expansion of current services to population growth areas including the Tri-Valley/eastern Contra Costa County and/or for Early Childhood-Special Education Credential/Masters program offering. -Increased enrollment may allow for additional course sections at Concord Campus, bringing more new candidates to the programs. IV. Additional Information (Up to 250 words)

11 IV. Additional Information (Up to 250 words) The Special Education Credentials/Masters programs prepare candidates for teaching and leadership positions in California schools. With increases of students with disabilities, and retirement rates increasing statewide, there is a critical need for more qualified special educators. CSUEB s Special Education programs are unique in the Bay Area in requiring all candidates to hold a general education credential or be concurrently enrolled in the TED/SPED program prior to completing Preliminary Education Specialist credentials. This dual preparation enables program graduates to serve diverse students with a wider range of abilities and needs than other programs graduates. The concurrent program is collaborative across two CEAS Departments: Educational Psychology and Teacher Education, with TED- SPED faculty working together since Several area districts report that they prioritize hiring of our dually-credentialed graduates based on skills and performance. CEAS Dean-Special Education faculty were invited to present this innovative program to CTC Executive Board 6/2013 as one of only three examples of public or independent IHEs statewide providing this preparation. Despite positive efforts aligned with ILOs/UAOs, our enrollments appear low since CSUEB cannot double-code students. Each year s cohort appears only as Teacher Education candidates. Following Master s degree completion- 10 units beyond credentials- numerous graduates become Program Specialists, Lead Teachers within their communities, or obtain additional credentials and administrative roles. Program emphasis on English learners, collaboration, inclusive practices, credential-area pedagogy, enables graduates to collaborate within general education, mandated Response to Intervention and district-specific programs. Special Education has obtained over seven million dollars in external grants in two decades.
