TERC’s Adult Numeracy Center has contracted with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to delineate features of a system that could certify the proficiency of adult education math teachers. TERC is designing an assessment-based, modular credentialing program to provide clear and manageable pathways for adult mathematics and numeracy practitioners to improve and demonstrate their proficiency as math teachers for adult basic education students aiming to pass the GED, attend college, and access better jobs.
