Legislative Letter: SB 78, “Teacher Pedagogical Assessment”

SB 78 is proposing a change to the assessment teachers have to pass in order to attain a provisional teaching license. The universities would like to switch from the current paper-and-pencil PRAXIS to a performance-based assessment. I support this change and the renewed focus on making sure our pre-service teachers are well-prepared.

In case contextual information about teacher licensing would be helpful, I’ve attached a guide to current UT requirements. Please consider voting for SB 78. Thank you for your time and efforts.
