Teacher Competency Assessment: New Directions in NTE.
Rosner, Frieda C.; Weber, Wilford A.
A review of the National Teacher Examinations (NTE) has focused on the Commons Examinations component. The Commons, now named the National Teacher Examinations Core Battery, tests general knowledge, communication skills, and professional knowledge in three separate tests. Users may select portions of the tests that best suit their needs at various checkpoints in the teacher's development, thus achieving a greater flexibility in test administration and a more unified measure of achievement. A revision of the tests' contents places new emphasis on the beginning teacher's knowledge of the context and process of teaching. Long-range revision plans call for the development of additional tests in classroom management, human relations skills, instructional design, and observation skills. Reviews of professional literature on classroom management have been prepared, and a large number of managerial strategies (62) have been identified and described. Various test formats are now being examined. (JD)
