Become a Reviewer for CAEP Social Studies Program Reports


NCSS seeks members to serve as reviewers of university social studies teacher education programs for the Council for the Accreditation of
Educator Preparation (CAEP, formerly NCATE).

How does it work?
Teams of reviewers examine program reports and conduct reviews over the Internet. One member of each team, designated the “lead reviewer,” receives program reviews from the other team members and compiles the review report. An audit committee at NCSS checks the reviews and sends them to CAEP for distribution to the submitting institution.

When does this happen?   --> read more »
