Assessment & Accreditation
All of the various education programs at Arkansas Tech University are accredited through the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, which has been the leading teacher education accrediting agency in the United States since 1954. In addition to this national accreditation as a unit, all programs that can receive the national specialized program association (SPA) accreditation (as delineated by Arkansas Department of Education requirements) have received this important distinction. The Arkansas Tech University College of Education is pleased to offer these nationally-accredited programs to our teacher education candidates. And, we are committed to continuously assessing our students, our programs, and our practices in multiple ways to ensure that we are effectively developing Professionals of the 21st Century who are equipped to positively impact learners in diverse and evolving learning communities.
