Participation in Clinical Practice

Most recently, approximately 45 candidates have been eligible for clinical experience each year.  As candidates are not permitted to enter student teaching until all major and professional education coursework is completed with grades of 'C' or higher in each course, the Praxis II Subject Area Assessments have been completed, and extensive field experience requirements have been met, candidates are well-prepared for the experience.  Rarely a candidate will not complete the experience successfully, but most years 100% of those eligible actually enroll in clinical experience and successfully meet requirements for completion.  From 2008-09 through 2010-11, two candidates were not able to successfully complete clinical experience.  Both participated in appropriate follow-up activities and were able to successfully complete the clinical experience in a later term.
