Key Standards
Selection Criteria

Scoring Comment

The standards for admission into either the institution or its teacher preparation program should select teacher candidates from only the top half of the college population.

The program fails to meet the standard because it does not exploit the potential for admission requirements (grade point averages, standardized tests commonly used for graduate admission and/or auditions) to provide assurance that teacher candidates in the graduate programs reviewed have the requisite academic talent.

Scoring Comment

Because they cannot teach what they do not know, teacher candidates need to have a solid grasp of literature and composition, American and world history, geography and science. Graduate programs should make sure that their elementary candidates know the subjects they will teach, either by reviewing their transcripts or by requiring that they pass rigorous assessments. If candidates are admitted with deficiencies in content preparation, the program should clearly delineate necessary remediation.

The program meets only a small part of this standard because its review of applicants ensures sufficient preparation in the content elementary teachers need only in:

  • Literature and Composition
Requirements for preparation are very deficient in:
  • History and Geography
  • Science
