ACTION ITEM

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

The Executive Director recommends adoption of the following resolutions:

 

RESOLVED, that the Commission accept the alternative assessment of competence by the Licensure Committee and adopt the resolutions as specified for the respective candidates.

 

RESOLVED FURTHER, that the Executive Director shall determine that any additional evidence of competence, if prescribed by the Licensure Committee, has been submitted prior to issuing a Basic, Standard, Initial or Continuing teaching license with the appropriate endorsement(s).

 

INFORMATION:

 

Currently, the Commission, under OAR 584-052-0027, accepts alternative evidence of competence in lieu of subject matter or professional knowledge tests when the candidate has a documented disability or cultural or ethnic conditions that cannot be accommodated through ETS testing procedures.  This latter provision has been interpreted to apply to any English as a second language candidate applying.

 

Alternative assessment includes the presentation of evidence of competence in a portfolio.  The Committee recommends adoption of one of the following resolutions:

 

1.       Resolved, that the Commission finds the portfolio demonstrates competence required for licensure and authorizes waiver of the test.

 

2.       Resolved, that the Commission finds that competence required for licensure has not been demonstrated in the portfolio and denies waiver of the test.
