The Patton College of Education at the University of Pikeville (UPIKE) has announced that all education program students passed the PRAXIS Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) test with a rate of 100 percent.
Aspiring teachers must take the PRAXIS test in order to achieve certification.
It is required by state law.
The next step for UPIKE education majors is to begin
student teaching in January at elementary, middle and high schools in Pike
county and at Pikeville Independent Schools.
“We are extremely proud of our aspiring teachers and
dedicated faculty and staff,” Patton College
of Education Interim Chairperson Coletta Parsley said. “These scores are one indicator of the quality of
our education programs within the Patton College of Education.”
UPIKE offers programs that prepare students for
certification eligibility in schools in Kentucky, as well. The university also
offers a Teacher Leader Master of Arts in Education, which gives students
personalized professional development as well as opportunities for practicing
educators to receive integrated learning.
