The purpose of this presentation is to provide support for science teacher educators who lead candidate and program assessment efforts at their respective institutions.

Suggestions on how to prepare a report for submission are included with helpful advice for developing an assessment system and presenting teacher-candidate data. The workshop provides in-depth examination of issues in science teacher education, in that the NSTA/SSTP assessments support science teacher candidates’ enactment of content, pedagogical, and professional knowledge and skills.
