MoSPE Matrix - Missouri Teaching Standards
Current MoSPE Missouri Teaching Standards can be found on the following website: http://dese.mo.gov/educator-quality/educator-effectiveness/educator-standards/teacher-standards
Currently Missouri State is in the process of transitioning from MoSTEP to the new Missouri Teaching Standards under MoSPE. Each faculty member should download the MoSPE matrix template and identify the competencies met only in the education courses they teach. Once completed, please email the matrix to email@example.com . The staff in the Teacher Certification Office will then put each education course on a master template and post it on this website so it can be viewed by faculty in other programs. This will be very helpful as programs work on revisions. Once all education courses have been completed, the staff will then build a program matrix for each program using the individual courses submitted.
