The 2014-2015 academic year witnessed radical changes to New York State certification requirements for teachers and educational leaders. New York State implemented “safety nets” for the edTPA (teacher performance assessment), the ALST (Academic Literacy Skills Test), and some of the revised Content Specialty Tests (CSTs). Multiple tests, in part depending upon area(s) of certification sought, were required for NYS teacher certification.

During the period September 2014 through May 2015, 41 LIU Hudson students (from the Rockland –R- and Westchester -W- campuses) demonstrated their intention to teach in NYS by taking varying combinations of 17 different examinations. When fewer than 10 students took a given examination, no passing rate was determined by the test administrators. Therefore, the summary below refers only to examinations taken by 10 or more individuals.

Academic Literacy Skills Test-W: 90% pass rate
Educating All Students –W: 100% pass rate
Multi-Subject CST –W: 100% pass rate
