New NYS Teacher Certification Exam Safety Nets

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has created safety nets for all of the new certification exams to aid those candidates who have not passed one or more of the exams. All of the safety net measures are retroactive and are effective through June 30, 2016. The NYSED memo detailing these safety nets can be found here Please see a summary of these safety nets below:

1. edTPA

The existing safety net was extended for one more year. Therefore, any candidate who does not pass or has not passed the edTPA PRIOR TO JUNE 30, 2016, has the option of taking and passing the ATS-W exam in lieu of retaking the edTPA.

2. ALST

A new safety net has been created for any candidate who has not or does not pass the ALST. Any candidate who takes and fails the ALST may submit an attestation signed by the dean or chief academic officer of their school of education, attesting that the candidate has demonstrated comparable literacy skills consistent with what would be assessed by the ALST through course completion and that the candidate received a 3.0 grade point average or higher in such coursework. An attestation form will be available on the Office of Teaching Initiatives website in the near future.

3. EAS

A new safety net has been created for any candidate who has not or does not pass the EAS PRIOR TO JUNE 30, 2016, The State will shortly (by the end of this June) define a safety net passing score. Once it has done so, candidates who do not pass or have not passed the EAS, but whose score is above the safety net score will get credit for the exam.

4. CST

A new safety net has been created for any candidate who has not or does not pass the new redeveloped CST in the following content areas ONLY:. English Language Arts, Literacy, Mathematics , Multi-Subject: Teachers of Early Childhood (Birth – Grade 2) , Multi-Subject: Teachers of Childhood (Grade 1 – Grade 6), Students with Disabilities.

Candidates who take and fail one of the eligible redeveloped CSTs listed above, will have the option of taking and passing the corresponding predecessor CST (the Safety Net CST) PRIOR TO JUNE 30, 2016, in lieu of retaking the redeveloped CST.

Any questions, please contact Mark Perez at mark.perez@nyu.edu
