Michigan Test for Teacher Certification: Annual Summary
NCATE is the profession's mechanism to establish high-quality teacher preparation. Through the process of professional accreditation of schools, colleges and departments of education, NCATE works to make a difference in the quality of teaching and teacher preparation today, tomorrow, and for the next century.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., NCATE was founded in 1954. Five groups were instrumental in its creation: the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE), the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC), the National Commission on Teacher Education and Professional Standards of the National Education Association (NEA), the National Council of Chief State School Officers (now CCSSO), and the National School Boards Association (NSBA). NCATE, as an independent accrediting agency, replaced the accreditation function within teacher education previously conducted under the auspices of AACTE.
