Eta Chapter is proud of the recent accomplishments of sister, Florence Saku. Florence was one of 271 teachers who met this summer in Chicago to set national board performance standards across 25 certificate areas. Florence said, “I set standards for biology content knowledge.” During standard setting, a panel of biology national board-certified teachers from across the nation analyzed 45 multiple choice questions in biology content knowledge to determine whether the ‘borderline’ teacher would be able to take and pass the assessment. Currently, national board certification involves a portfolio piece of four entries that documents the teacher’s interactions with students, colleagues, community and professional development. Then the teacher takes a computer-based assessment in content knowledge, which is made of six constructed responses. Now, the new assessment will have three constructed responses and 45 multiple-choice questions. Participating in this process shows Florence’s expertise, dedication, work and vision for the profession of teaching. Source: Cumberland Times News, September 24, 2017
