Student 1

Recruitment: Admissions:  Advising:  Monitoring: Final Clinical Placement:  Completion Check: Completer Follow-Up:

Student 1 met with a Kremen advisor to discuss credential program options. Applied and was accepted to the teacher residency program. However, the partnership was postponed, so Student 1 met with the advisor again to discuss options. She decided to continue in the campus evening cohort instead of delaying the start of the program by a semester. 

Student 1 also had frequent email exchanges with the advisor discussing credential program options. 

 

Student 1 was admitted to Fresno State on 10/19/2018 for Spring 2019. Admitted to the Spring 2019 Multiple Subject program on 10/01/2018 after submitting all admission  requirements: passing CBEST scores, passing CSET 101, 214 & 103 scores, a valid certificate
of clearance, verification of pre-program
field experience, two letters of recommend-
ation, an admission interview and personal narrative, a TB risk assessment, a mandated reporter training certificate, an advising sheet, a candidate commitment form and verification of completing the U.S. Constitution requirement.

Student 1 actively participated in the Multiple Subject Program Credential Orientations in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. Student 1 actively participated in Tk20 training led by MS Coordinator. Student 1 received additional advising support from the LEE 160 course instructor where the instructor compiled questions from Student 1’s
cohort for the
MS Coordinator to answer.  Student 1 graduated from Brigham Young University, Idaho & requested advising on coursework that satisfied the U.S.Constitution requirement. Student 1 asked about the requirements for mandated reporter training. Student 1 participated on a student panel at the MS Program Meeting to share their experience learning during COVID-19 to
help faculty make adjustments to their practice to better meet student need.  

On 9/29/2020 Student 1 informed the MS Coordinator of their placement site’s return to in-person instruction for K-6 students and requested support on how the university plans to move forward with student teaching
if online teaching with our MT's is no longer an option. And, Student 1 asked about  how the COVID-19 Student Acknowledge-
ment of Risk form. MS Coordinator provided Student 1 S 2019 course registration information as the courses are hidden from students not in their cohort and require specific course numbers for registration. Student 1 caught an error in which the MS Coordinator was able to work with the Chair and DAA to resolve. On 2/22/21 the MS Coordinator followed up with Student 1 to let them know that they are working on additional supports for student teachers including simSchool. And, that their SimSchool accounts are set up now confirming that Student 1 received the login information email. On 11/16/20 Student 1 was notified that she was cleared for final student teaching.

Student 2 was advised by the MS Coordinator and BAP coordinator in order to  determine which additional BAP courses they needed to take.

Since they only needed to take 1 more of the 5 BAP courses, Student 2 was able to move forward with coursework to each a Dual MS and ES/SPED credential as well as add on the Bilingual Authorization in Spanish. 

The PIR provided Student 2 with their Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 course registration information as the courses are hidden from students not in their cohort and require specific course numbers for registration.

FAST TSP scores confirmed for passing scores  Students in Context (2) Meets Expectation, Learning Outcomes (1), Assessment (2), Design for Instruction (1), Instructional Decision Making (1), Analysis of Student Learning (1), Reflection & Self Evaluation (1) (Failed attempt 1)

Two issues emerged when Student 2 attempted the FAST TSP. 1) There were concerns that Student 2 and another Student from FTRP copied each other’s lessons. The MS Coordinator and District Residency Coordinator met to discuss the situation to discover that the lesson plan similarities were due to the district pacing calendar, the fact that they were placed at the same school site and at the same grade level where the Mentors and Residents co-plan units of instruction during PLCs. The MS Coordinator and FAST Coordinator met with Student 2’s clinical coach to discuss and determine that upon close review, there was no cheating involved. And, a plan with FTRP to prevent this issue in the future was developed. 2) Student 2 did not earn a passing score of 2 on each item of the TSP Rubric. Student 2  met with the FAST Coordinator  and her coach to review the FAST manual prompts, scoring rubrics and scores. Student 2 was supported by helping her to understand that the TSP is a project that builds upon each section. The FAST Coordinator and clinical coach reviewed the prompts with Student 2 and helped them better understand the expectation within each section of the assessment. Student 2 was rushed to finish her project and overwhelmed with getting a late start with their final student teaching placement in face to face instruction. Student 2 was given an opportunity to revise their TSP and have it rescored.
