Achieve Institutional Recommendation

College of Education learners who are in pursuit of Institutional Recommendation must pass their state-specified basic skills and content area exams before the start of their student teaching assignment. The three-part test involves reading, writing and math.

Most states, including Arizona, also require learners to take a Professional Knowledge exam to achieve certification. Students may sit for this exam at any time in the program and even during their student teaching assignment. It is a requirement for Institutional Recommendation so please visit your state's department of education website for more information.

For more information on state testing and certification, please contact your Teacher Education Specialist.
