(May 25, 2012, Washington, D.C.) – The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) finds that the National Council on Teacher Quality’s (NCTQ) latest report, What Teacher Preparation Programs Teach about K-12 Assessment, again illuminates the group’s flawed research methodology and reflects its strong bias against higher-education-based educator preparation.

The report, issued as a precursor to NCTQ’s national review of preparation programs with U.S. News & World Report, addresses an important matter that AACTE and its member programs regard as a major priority and on which they are working in earnest.
