Teaching Teachers to Teach: Ranking Arkansas's Education Preparation Providers

Posted By Arkansas Learns, Wednesday, January 16, 2019

Here's how Arkansas's colleges and universities rank in preparing teachers to teach, based on results of the licensure test. Passing percentages are only listed for those with 10 or more test takers.

Act 328, sponsored by Senator Alan Clark in 2017's 91st General Assembly, requires that teaching candidates entering an educator preparation program beginning in the 2017-18 academic year or thereafter for a first-time elementary level K-6 license or special education K-12 license shall take and pass a stand-alone assessment that examines the acquisition of knowledge of essential components of beginning reading instruction based on the science of reading.

Those results are not reflected in the following:
