Teacher Testing in Texas. (Pedagogy)


Martin, Chet, Sadler, Wendell C., Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport


First time test takers pass rates on the Examination for Certification of Educators in Texas (ExGET) are used by State Board for Educator Certification (SBEG) to determine accredited teacher preparation programs. A challenge for faculty in teacher preparation programs is to identify trends that may exist with respect to success on the ExCET or any similar teacher certification test. The purpose of this study was to identify trends in the pass rates from universities and colleges in the State of Texas regarding first time test takers on the ExCET from 1987 to 2000. The investigators identified trends based on data received from an aggregate report obtained from SBEC based on all teacher preparation programs in Texas and survey results collected from certification officers in public universities and colleges. Frequencies and mean percentages of successful first time test takers for each year and discipline were reported to identify any trends that existed from 1987 to 2000. The descriptive data were collected f rom questionnaires sent to the public university certification officers in Texas. Trends and information were identified from public universities and colleges in the Texas concerning requirements for admission to teacher education programs, preparation procedures for (ExGET),interventions for the ExCET, and a particularly close scrutiny of physical education, health, and dance in these areas.
