Title: Credentials and Tests in Teacher Hiring: What Do Districts Require? (Issue Brief)
Description: To determine whether there has been a trend toward increasing reliance on tests in teacher hiring processes, this issue brief presents data on public school districts' credential and test requirements for all three SASS survey years: 1987-88, 1990-91, and 1993-94. In addition, regional variations in test requirements for hiring are presented. At each SASS survey point, public school district respondents indicated which credentials and tests were required of applicants for teaching positions.
