Certification Examinations for Oklahoma Educators

Annual Institution Report

In October 1998, congress voiced its concern for the quality of teacher preparation by enacting Title II of the Higher Education Act (HEA).  Title II authorizes new federal grant programs that support the efforts of states, institutions of higher education, and their school district partners to improve the recruitment, preparation and support of new teachers.  Title II also includes new accountability measures in the form of reporting requirements for institutions and states on teacher preparation and licensing.  The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma is participating fully in Title II reporting.
