Engaging with Faculty to Develop, Implement, and Pilot Electronic Performance Assessments of Student Teachers Using Mobile Devices
This paper discusses the development and implementation of a technology-supportedstudent teacher performance assessment that supports integration with a larger electronic assessment system. Of the 20 supervisors who were invited to the field test, 18 completed the survey and 8 participated in the focus group. Supervisors were overwhelmingly positive about the experience, the value of the updated assessments, and the ongoing plans to support field observations with mobile technologies. However, issues related to training, support, and trust loom largely for successful adoption, diffusion, and successful use of technology-supported assessments.

Responding to the Challenges Posed by Summative Teacher Candidate Evaluation: A Collaborative Self-Study of Practicum Supervision by Faculty
This collaborative self-study describes how two new faculty members responded to the challenges posed by the teacher candidate evaluation process. Methods used included formal tape-recorded discussions during meetings of the self-study group of newly hired faculty, email correspondence, field notes, feedback from public forums about their work, and teacher candidate insights concerning the practicum evaluation process conducted by faculty.New strategies were developed to address the tensions associated with using summative evaluations in a formative framework and to improve practice during faculty practicum supervision.
