One of the first assessments to evaluate a prospective teacher candidate is an assessment of their reading, writing, and mathematics (basic skills).
Starting in September of 2017, there will be three pathways to demonstrate basic skills proficiency:
Path 1: ACT Composite score of 22 or higher
Path 2: Approved Basic Skills Tests - the list will be posted when available
Path 3: Basic Skills Portfolio. Contact the chair of the agricultural education department for details.
