Mastery Assessment Award

Because no nationally standardized assessment for teachers of children of poverty currently exists, a mastery test has been developed by the Center of Excellence. The assessment is administered each semester to Francis Marion student teachers at the conclusion of their final semester of preparation. This data is provided to School of Education program committees and faculty so that it may be used to inform programmatic changes that will support ever-increasing success of FMU graduates as teachers of children of poverty.

Prizes are awarded to the student teachers who attain the highest scores each semester on the Mastery Assessment and they are featured in Center of Excellence publications.
