National Board Field Tests

June 1, 2014

Calling all teachers!
Screen Shot 2014-05-20 at 7.24.08 PMThe National Board is seeking PreK-12 teachers in most content areas, as well as college and graduate students pursuing a teaching license, to volunteer to participate in field tests of the revised National Board Certification process. Over the next three years, we are looking for teachers in all subject areas and developmental levels corresponding to National Board certificate areas.

When and Where?
The National Board will be field testing three components of the revised certification process: Content Knowledge (delivered at the assessment center); Teaching Practice and Learning Environment (involves creating a video); and Effective and Reflective Practitioner (a new written component). A large number of teachers are required to complete the field testing process. In addition, a significant subset of field test participants will be asked to complete all three of these components over a three-year time frame, as outlined in the table located by clicking here along with the details.

This is your opportunity to “test drive” the new certification process at no cost and no risk. It is not necessary to be Board certified to participate and you can pursue certification as a candidate at the same time. Click here for the application.
