The University of Memphis College of Education, Health and Human Sciences Assessment
System (CEHHSAS) is an organizing framework and an operations model that delineates
how the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences (CEHHS) and all its constituent
programs—through ongoing self-study—provides regular and comprehensive assessment
of four essential domains: applicants and candidate qualifications, candidate proficiencies,
graduates‘ competence, and unit and program operations and quality. CEHHSAS provides
a common framework for assessing the CEHHS as a unit, and all of its constituent programs,
including programs preparing teachers and other school professionals—initial B.S.Ed.
and M.A.T./Licensure-only teacher education programs, advanced continuing education
M.S. programs for teachers, and advanced preparation M.S. programs for other school
professionals. The University of Memphis CEHHSAS is designed for three purposes: to
monitor growth of candidate knowledge, skills, and dispositions; to determine the
efficacy of curriculum and assessment of all CEHHS programs; and to structure periodic
analysis of data aimed at improving unit and program operations and quality.
