Praxis II and African American Teacher Candidates (or, "Is Everything Black Bad"?)
Albers, Peggy
English Education, v34 n2 p105-25 Jan 2002
Investigates the Praxis II, the standardized teacher examination required for teacher certification in Georgia. Considers why African American teacher candidates were less successful than their white colleagues in passing this exit exam for teacher licensure. Concludes that assessment must account for the cultural realities that teacher candidates bring to teacher testing. (SG)
