Degree +3 at UTC

Bridging the Gap Between Assessment and Instructional Planning


The School of Education (SOE) at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) cordially welcomes you to the Degree +3 website. We hope this site will assist you in finding answers to all your questions about the program.

Degree +3 is a comprehensive program grounded in the use of student assessment data to drive classroom

  • The initiative works within the framework of the UTC checkpoints to ensure adequate exposure to data assessment for pre-service teachers  through the first three years of service as teaching professionals (for those teaching in Hamilton County).

  • The process is designed to enhance knowledge base of assessment and testing while providing rigorous instruction on how to use this data to drive classroom teaching.
