Ohio's Entry Year Program for Teachers: Toward the Implementation of Performance-Based Licensure.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Teacher, Education, Certification, and Professional Development.
Ohio's new Teacher Education and Licensure Standards were adopted in 1996 and became effective in 1998. Designed to strengthen Ohio's teacher preparation programs, achieve higher standards, and intensify professional development, the standards require successful performance by beginning teachers. The standards state that the Entry Year (EY) Program will include both a formal program of support and assessment of the beginning teacher or principal. To qualify for professional licensure, all beginning teachers must successfully complete the EY program and assessment. The EY program, which lasts 1 academic year, provides direct assistance to Ohio's teachers via mentors. The Praxis III Professional Assessment for Beginning Teachers will be used as Ohio's performance assessment for licensing all beginning teachers. This booklet explains what beginning teachers, mentor teachers, and administrators need to know. It also presents resources for further information. (SM)
