Explore how measures other than licensure exams — observations, surveys, interviews or portfolios, for example — can round out how states assess the readiness of teacher candidates. Also: how North Carolina is forging ahead to transform its licensure requirements.

Teacher Preparation Commission recommends that each state hold all new teachers to the same high standards and use practice-based licensure exams. Other measures — observations, surveys, interviews or portfolios, for example — can round out how states assess the readiness of teacher candidates. Also: how North Carolina is forging ahead to transform its licensure requirements.
