This instrument should be completed by the person on staff that has spent significant time working with the candidate and is best able to rate the candidate's knowledge and abilities (i.e. administration, lead teacher, curriculum coordinator). This survey has been created to gain your feedback about the initial preparation programs offered through McNeese State University. This instrument mirrors the candidate's exit and follow-up survey administered at graduation and for the following three years after graduation. Data from both of these surverys will be analyzed to determine any trends in strengths and/or weaknesses of the teacher preparation program in order to enhance the effectiveness of our program.
