An Examination of Teacher Quality Variables Associated with Passing State Content Tests
Harrell, Pamela Esprivalo; Harris, Mary M.; Jackson, Jennifer K.
Journal of the National Association for Alternative Certification, v4 n2 p18-40 Fall 2009
Graduates of a post-baccalaureate secondary education program working on certification in five core subject fields served as a sample for transcript review to investigate how well the variables of number of hours completed for content major course work, the content major grade point average (GPA), and the age of content major course work predicted a passing score on the Texas state content certification test for teachers. The three predictor variables were statistically significant with GPA as the strongest single predictor associated with the Texas state content certification test.
