The Council on Professional Education (CPE) is the development and coordinating body of the Comprehensive Assessment System for UWM programs leading to Wisconsin licensure in the areas of teacher education, administration, and pupil services.
Faculty and staff representing UWM's 34 professional education licensure programs and student and community representatives serve on the CPE. The CPE meets four times a year to review assessment data at the unit level, address issues pertinent to the programs, and prepare programs for institutional review.
The CPE also has several workgroups, both permanent and ad hoc, that support the larger group. The Steering Group sets the agendas for CPE meetings. The Data Management Team oversees the collection and reporting of assessment data. Other groups address administrative and research needs of the CPE as they arise.
