A New Style of Certification.
Andrews, Theodore E.
The state education department is proposing a set of process standards to be followed in developing trial projects in teacher education which will lead to competency-based certification. Standard I specifies that representatives of public schools, higher education institutions, teachers, and teacher education students must be included in planning, development, and evaluation. Interested representatives of other agencies may be included such as lay citizens. Standard II states that the cooperating agencies must address the following questions: 1) What are the stated objectives and priorities of the schools involved? 2) What competencies should a teacher have to serve in those schools? Standard III provides that the cooperating agencies must specify the evidence that they will accept and the manner in which they will ascertain that the prospective teacher has reached an acceptable level of competence. It also requires that the program provide individualized opportunities for the candidate to gain and demonstrate the competencies necessary for certification. Standard IV requires that a management system be established to provide data on student progress and the interrelationships of program components, to determine accountability for each aspect of the program, and to serve as a basis for program evaluation.
