Our conceptual framework embraces three areas – Knowledge of, Dispositions Toward, and Performances related to the Learner, Pedagogy, and the Curriculum. It is our belief that the continually developing levels of proficiency or competency achieved by our Reflective Teacher Candidates with a Christian Worldview in the three areas are effectively demonstrated and continually measured and evaluated by the following ten (10) Reflective Teacher Candidate Proficiency Outcomes. Our ten proficiency outcomes are based on the college mission and vision statements, as well as the mission and vision statements of the Education Division. The Proficiency Outcomes are aligned with the INTASC Standards/ Georgia 2000.
