One More Time: What Are the Changes in Teacher Certification and Testing
John Snyder, Associate Director of Career Services, Slippery Rock University of PA
  • For a couple of years, Pennsylvania has been transitioning to new certification areas for some subjects, eliminating some certification areas, and leaving some of them alone. With the certification changes have come testing changes involving PDE contracting with Pearson VUE to deliver some tests and ETS to deliver some tests. Has this transition been confusing? Of course it has! If you work with education majors and/or alumni and want to better understand this mess, join me for this discussion.
