FIELD EXPERIENCE SUMMARY (FES): This should be submitted in Blackboard and is required in order to pass this course. Complete this cumulative record of your field experiences up to this point in the program. Leave the example row as it is so that you'll have it for future reference. Begin your entry in the row below the example.

FIELD EXPERIENCE ASSESSMENT (FEA): This is completed by your mentor by going to the link sent in an e-mail and entering the username and password provided in that same e-mail. If your mentor cannot find the e-mail, direct your mentor to go to www.LiveText.com and click the FORGOT link. It will guide your mentor through the process. However, you must follow the directions in Bb to download the PDF of your mentor’s assessment and to upload the PDF into Blackboard.

FINAL EXAM: Though it will be open-book/open-notes, you will find it advantageous to review the study guide and to prepare ahead of time. Carefully mark the topics from the study guide in your textbook. The exam will contain 6 essay questions, and have a 2-hour and 45-minute time limit.

SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN (SIP): See more details below.


You have already completed the individual elements of the SIP throughout the course, but now you will upload them into LiveText. Some of you may need to make some revisions, such as making your goals SMART (see Chapter 2) and ensuring that your goals are not simply one strategy (addressing a symptom) to get to the actual goal (the heart of the issue). Also, if you are struggling with developing goals, click the button below for Goals Samples & Tips.

Avoid Common Errors by Doing the Following

Make revisions or improvements based upon feedback in Blackboard on the initial submissions of the Data Analysis & Goals and the Implementation Plan.

Follow the directions in the LiveText template for each section. (If you do not enter the information into the template as directed, you will be asked to resubmit. If you don't know how to navigate a LiveText template, click the HELP link in the top right corner of the LiveText website and follow the tutorials.)
