Education candidates must meet the knowledge, skills, and disposition standards as set forth by our national accrediting body. Candidates will be assessed by faculty at two transition points before Practicum I to identify strengths, areas for improvement, and recommendation for continuation in the program. Candidates who fail to meet these standards in the area of dispositions will have a Professional Assessment Form filed with the department chair by a Loyola faculty member. The resulting Professional Assessment Review may result in removal from the program and/or internship for the protection of both the Loyola candidate and the K-12 students. Complete details of this procedure are available in the student handbook.
