The New York Collaborative for Excellence in Teacher Preparation (NYCETP) is a multi-campus project designed to produce competent science and mathematics teachers. Ongoing formative evaluation included documenting NYCETP meetings and conferences, providing feedback summaries on conferences and working groups, and evaluating course conversion and course enhancement documents. The evaluation helped design activities supporting faculty development and intercampus faculty collaboration. Evaluation activities included examining a course developed by faculty on a different campus. Peer review procedures were developed for NYCETP course and curriculum materials. The peer review process included a lesson plan review form for mathematics methods courses (faculty rated preservice teachers' lesson plans). Questionnaires were developed to examine student, faculty, and administrator familiarity with NYCETP goals. A sixth-year extension involved participating in the National Science Foundation CETP Core Evaluation and Data Collection Project, summarizing NYCETP data, and planning for an integrated student database and tracking system. A 3-year evaluation proposal was developed to coordinate NYCETP data collection goals with City University of New York efforts to generate a longitudinal database for preservice teachers on all campuses, with placement and follow-up information aligned with New York and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education accreditation requirements.
