Department Metrics

From Our Students

The following responses were collected as part of an exit survey conducted by the Department of Education with traditional and non-traditional elementary and secondary students. See the quantitative survey results.

"NNU's emphasis on strong classroom management made me feel confident enough to command a classroom and to motivate students. The emphasis on teaching science and social studies (especially science) is something that motivated me to teach science and social studies in as fun a way as possible, and to try to move beyond the textbook and into exploratory activities—I think my students thank you for this too!"

—Elementary Traditional Student

"The field experiences and the actual student teaching was the most important piece of the education program. I really feel that I was prepared to teach and coach before I even finished my student teaching. The accountability that the Ed Program demands really reflects that of an actual school district."

—Secondary Traditional Student
