Efforts toward ensuring that teachers enter the classroom with the ability to deliver instruction will be furthered by the Teacher Performance Assessment, said Raymond Pecheone, executive director of the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity.

Pecheone and center founder Linda Darling-Hammond are working with the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education to pilot an entrance test that can be used when awarding teaching certification and licensure.
