Abstract Title: What do thriving physics teacher education programs do? The Physics Teacher Education Program Analysis (PTEPA) Rubric
Abstract: The Physics Teacher Education Program Analysis (PTEPA) Rubric(1) is a new instrument designed by PhysTEC to provide a specific, objective, and reliable measurement of the activities and structures which may be present in physics teacher education programs.  The PTEPA Rubric was developed based on site visits to eight "thriving" physics teacher education programs (those graduating 5 or more physics teachers per year), and extensive validation, creating a detailed taxonomy of possible program elements (such as institutional characteristics, recruitment of teachers, and pedagogical preparation).  In addition to self-reflection for program leaders, the rubric allows new research opportunities.  We encourage the PER community to engage in studies using the rubric, including further validation, and using the instrument to further our knowledge about effective physics teacher education programs.
