How Do Students Pass the Practicum?

In order to receive a passing grade, ratings must be at the Developing, Basic, or Proficient level.

 

Returning Evaluation Forms

The lesson critiques and Practicum Evaluation forms are needed before the student can receive a Pass/Fail grade for the practicum.  Please return these as quickly as possible to the Field Office at the end of the practicum experience.

Electronic forms may be faxed to 641-784-5481, or may be sent as email attachments to: fieldoffice@graceland.edu 

Printed copies may be sent by postal mail to:

Iowa Renewal Credit

If you are a teacher in Iowa, you are eligible for renewal credit for hosting a student teacher.  Click HERE to access required BOEE instructions and forms.

The State of Iowa requires you to maintain a record of your eligible activities.  Complete the first form provided in the BOEE instructions by listing all the students you have supervised for either practicum or student teaching.  You may only submit one form from each university that you had practicum or student teachers from, so wait until you close to renewing your license. Send your completed form to the Graceland Field Office for verification of placements we have made with you.  We will return to you the second BOEE form with a signature from a Graceland representative.  You will then submit your renewal form along with any other required documentation to the BOEE for renewal credit.
