Once the placement is approved, you will receive an email from a representative from the Office of Teacher Education and Clinical Practice.

    • Mentors of full-time candidates are paid in December of the Fall semester and May in the Spring semester.

  • What is the Educator Disposition Assessment?
    • Dispositions are the attitudes, values, and behaviors that shape how educators interact with students. The Educator Disposition Assessment > is an instrument that The College of Education uses to evaluate the dispositions of teacher candidates. All students are evaluated using the disposition assessment for a grade during field experiences, Residency, and Clinical experiences. This instrument is also used to address disposition concerns. Please see the EDA Concerns Process > for more information.
