The Virginia Department of Education is changing its accreditation standards, with the aim of providing a more comprehensive view of school quality. The new method for judging success is based on not just how many students pass the state standards test, but how much they have improved their scores from the previous year.
Shenandoah University received an award his week at the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council’s annual Tech Nite awards banquet for its program that sees students using virtual and augmented reality programs developed on campus to gain simulated experience in their fields. James Ruscella, the learning center’s executing director, works with SU staff and faculty to create applied technology projects that provide new methods of learning.
