New Hampshire is in a position that has no precedent in the state’s history: all higher education educator preparation programs in the state, both public and private, have come together as a collaborative entity focused on the shared aim of program accountability. This consortium, the New Hampshire Institutions of Higher Education (NH IHE) Network, was formally created in 2011 and gained official 501 (c)(3) non-profit status in January 2014 (NH IHE Network, 2016).
The IHE Network includes educational professionals from all 13 NH teacher education programs. Working together, we have developed a common performance based assessment for Student Teachers to better prepare them for the classroom and to assist Teacher Educators in assessing their programs and candidates' capabilities.
