The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), through its Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC), is pleased to offer this set of model core teaching standards that outline what teachers should know and be able to do to ensure every K-12 student reaches the goal of being ready to enter college or the workforce in today’s world. These standards outline the common principles and foundations of teaching practice that cut across all subject areas and grade levels and that are necessary to improve student achievement (www.ccsso.org).

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) adopted a structure for standards that begins with three areas of teacher preparation.  These research-based factors are “likely to have the strongest effects” on outcomes for students: content knowledge; field experience; and the quality of teacher candidates. The ultimate goal of educator preparation is the impact of program completers on P-12 student learning and development, as framed in the fourth standard. That impact can be demonstrated both directly through multiple measures and indirectly by the satisfaction of the completers and their employers.
