Appendix B: List of NES-Developed State Tests: 1998
This appendix contains a listing of the assessments administered by the National Evaluation Systems, Inc., for the teacher certification and licensure process. NES developed individual assessments series for 10 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, and Texas. Oregon uses the basic skills portion of the California assessments in their teacher certification and licensure process. NES assessments evaluate basic skills, professional knowledge, and subject matter knowledge. States set their own cut score or minimum passing rate for their test takers.
