Exploring the AMTE Standards: Key Points in Assessing Mathematics Teacher Preparation. While AMTE’s Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics describes a national vision for the initial preparation of teacher of mathematics, we will not know if we are achieving that vision unless we effectively assess our efforts. The Standards provides a comprehensive description of the assessment of both candidates and programs that can support the improvement of practices and policies to better support the Standards. The document includes general recommendations about general features of effective assessments used in preparing teachers of mathematics, about assessing the quality of mathematics teacher candidates, and about assessing the quality of mathematics teacher preparation programs. Join us for an AMTE webinar focusing on the role of assessment in achieving the AMTE Standards. The presenters will provide insights drawn from the document and their experiences, raise challenges for discussion by participants, as well as provide opportunities for your questions.
