Vanguard University Music Department’s Assistant Professor Mildred Yi, presented a study on music teacher education at the 2016 National Association for Music Education (NAfME) Music Research and Teacher Education, Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, March 18. The research poster was titled, “Practice Teacher Performance Assessment for Preservice Music Teachers” This study examines the inter-judge reliability of a practice teacher performance assessment designed as a learning tool for preservice music teachers. The modified assessment rubric is intended to serve as a preparation for the Educative Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA), a novice teacher evaluation system developed by Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE), which many states have recently adopted to serve as a measure of readiness for the profession.
Last month, Professor Yi was featured at the California All-State Education Conference in San Jose, CA. Below is the article discussing her involvement in the conference.
