Ohio Board of Regents LS

Program Review and Development

30 East Broad St., 36 FL Columbus, OH 43215


Middle Childhood: Undergraduate and Post Baccalaureate


[Proposal for Middle Childhood]

There are three common reasons why FORM A is required by the Ohio Board of Regents:

  1. to offer a NEW teacher preparation program in Ohio,

  2. to bring a program out of DORMANCY,

  3. to respond to an OBR request due to issues with the program, and

  4. when a program is not approved by a Specialized Professional Association and the institution needs state program approval.

NOTE: The Office of Academic Quality Assurance, Ohio Board of Regents, supports The Lumina Foundation’s important work defining the types of knowledge appropriate within Associate, Bachelor and Graduate level courses and programs. Please refer to the Foundation’s Degree Qualifications Profile (report pages 1 through 17) paying special attention to the Broad, Integrative Knowledge and Applied Learning areas. Note the differences between undergraduate and graduate program “knowledge” expectations as you conceptualize and create the program being proposed.


General Directions

  • We require the Dean or Director of the unit to electronically submit FORM A and the NEW: CURRICULUM MAP from her/his direct email account to educator_prep@regents.state.oh.us.

Students are not accepted into the teacher preparation programs on conditional status.

Advising Candidates out of the Program

Identify the criteria that are established to counsel or remove candidates out of the program.

Students meet with their advisors each semester and review their progress through the program. If the advisor find issues that would be problematic for the student, s/he will advise them to seek other majors and/or delay entrance until all criteria are met. At the conclusion of each semester, faculty together do a final review of the candidate and letters are sent to students from the Dean that indicate whether they may continue in the program or are dismissed.

Section 5: Field Experiences and Clinical Practice

Field experiences and clinical practice start when a candidate is admitted into the proposed education program and are grouped into three types: 1) initial/early field experiences, 2) more intensive field experiences and 3) Clinical Practice/Student Teaching. These experiences are to be aligned with the Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession. Each grouping addresses minimum requirements.

For the purpose of this Program Review, OBR follows the definition for Clinical Practice and Field Experiences as found in the NCATE Glossary:

  • Clinical Practice. Student teaching or internships that provide candidates with an intensive and extensive culminating activity. Candidates are immersed in the learning community and are provided opportunities to develop and demonstrate competence in the professional roles for which they are preparing. http://www.ncate.org/Standards/NCATEUnitStandards/NCATEGlossary/tabid/477/Default.aspx#F

  • Field Experiences. A variety of early and ongoing field-based opportunities in which candidates may observe, assist, tutor, instruct, and/or conduct research. Field experiences may occur in off-campus settings such as schools, community centers, or homeless shelters. http://www.ncate.org/Standards/NCATEUnitStandards/NCATEGlossary/tabid/477/Default.aspx#F
