Students will receive both formative and summative evaluations of their progress toward meeting these standards throughout their program at Iowa State University. A detailed explanation of the standards and assessment process may be found on the department's website ( www.ci.hs.iastate.edu/ ). The same information is also available from the student's academic adviser.

Graduates of the elementary education program will be able to demonstrate through professional practice their understanding of academic disciplines, teaching and learning, the nature of the student, and how to adapt instruction for diversity. More specifically, graduates will be able to demonstrate their understanding of concepts and structures of disciplines, tools of inquiry, how students learn and develop, and the effects of individual differences on learning. Graduates will be able to demonstrate a broad range of instructional strategies, including knowledge of technology applicable to instruction. In their teaching, graduates will demonstrate the ability to stimulate active inquiry with collaboration and supportive interaction among their students. In appropriate settings graduates will demonstrate their ability to develop professional relationships with colleagues, parents, and agencies that support students and their learning.

Secondary Education

For specific requirements for each area of specialization, see Teacher Education and curricula for the college in which the chosen degree major is sought.

Students seeking recommendations for a license to teach in the secondary schools must be admitted to the teacher education program and pursue a program that includes the professional core: C I 202, 204, 333, 406, 426, and Sp Ed 450; special methods; and student teaching in the area of specialization. Note: Students seeking licensure in agriculture and science do not take C I 426.

Graduate Study

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers work for the degrees Master of Science, Master of Education, and Doctor of Philosophy with a major in education and minor work to students taking major work in other departments. Within the education major in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction a student may earn an education degree with no area of specialization (master's and doctorate) or specialize in elementary education (master's only), historical, philosophical, and comparative studies in education (master's only), special education (master's only), or curriculum and instructional technology (master's and doctorate). The specialization in elementary education (advanced study for licensed teachers) is designed to prepare candidates for teaching and curricular leadership positions in elementary settings. The specialization in historical, philosophical, and comparative studies in education is designed to provide graduate students experiences in analyzing educational problems and issues, critiquing policies that affect education in Society, and making connections between educational practice and learning. The special education specialization is designed to prepare candidates as practitioners and researchers in the field of mild/moderate disabilities or behavioral disorders/learning disabilities. The specialization in curriculum and instructional technology is designed to prepare candidates as researchers and practitioners in the fields of curriculum and instructional technology.

Students may also opt not to select an area of specialization. These students are asked to select a focus area for their graduate study. Focus areas include educational psychology, world language education, literacy education, mathematics education, multicultural education and international curriculum studies, and science education. See the Curriculum and Instruction web site at www.ci.hs.iastate.edu/ for more information on these focus areas.

A minor is available in curriculum and instructional technology at both the master's and doctoral level. Information about the minors can be found on the web at www.ci.hs.iastate.edu/prspstud/grad/Grad2/Degrees.php .

A Master of Arts in Teaching degree program leading to teacher licensure (science only) is available to students who currently have a bachelor's degree in science (or a closely related field). A teacher licensure program in mathematics education is also available to graduate students (Department of Curriculum and Instruction). Teacher licensure at the graduate level is also offered in agricultural education (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences) and family and consumer sciences (College of Human Sciences). The Department of Curriculum and Instruction provides the professional education coursework. Students in a graduate teacher licensure program must complete Sp Ed 501, C I 505, 506, 529, and HPC 504. Mathematics licensure students also take C I 526.

Graduate level teaching endorsements are offered through the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. Graduate students who seek a teaching endorsement in special education, but do not wish to pursue a master's degree can incorporate those courses from a professional certificate program. Endorsement programs include Instructional Strategist I: Mild/Moderate Disabilities (K-8 or 5-12), or Instructional Strategist II: Behavior Disorders/Learning Disabilities, and special education consultant. A graduate level reading endorsement is also available.

Prerequisite to major graduate work in education is preparation substantially equivalent to the completion of one of the undergraduate curricula in education offered at Iowa State University, or graduate preparation in a discipline to be used as a teaching field in a community college or university, and adequate proof that the student ranks above average in scholastic ability and promise of professional competence.

The world language requirement, if any, for the Ph.D. degree will be determined by the student's program of study committee. If no world language is required, the total program must consist of a minimum of 78 semester credits, at least 12 of which must be earned outside the education major, and at least 16 of which must be earned outside the area of specialization. Statistics and research methods may not be included in the 16 credits. Should world language be included, the program of study committee may adjust the minimum program requirement downward, but in no instance may the program of study be less than 72 semester credits. Students whose native language is not English may substitute competence in English. All applicants for the Ph.D. must submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores.

Other graduate programs related to education (including General Graduate Studies) may be planned for students on the basis of previous education and experiences as well as future plans and needs. Students should refer to Agricultural Education and Studies, Family and Consumer Sciences Education, Kinesiology, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, and General Graduate Studies or to graduate level course offerings within other departments.
