Competency-Based Certification: What Are the Key Issues? NEPTE Working Paper #6.
Pitman, John C.
This paper is a brief overview of competency-based teacher education (CBTE) and competency-based certification (CBC). The notion of requiring teachers to demonstrate certain skills is examined in the light of questions on its long-range validity and utility. The author cautions against overreliance on CBTE and CBC due to a number of these unresolved questions. One of the key issues treated in the paper is the relationship between certification and the possible measurable specificity of behavior. (CL)
