Springfield College Tops State Average Scores
Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure 2007 - 2008

Springfield College is proud to announce the 100 percent pass rate for our students who took the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) for 2007-2008, topping the state average pass rate of 98 percent. Candidates for educator licensure in Massachusetts must pass tests of communication and literacy skills, and the subject area of the license they are seeking.

With 50 faculty members devoted to the practicum supervision of our teacher preparation students, Springfield College boasts one of the best student/faculty ratios in the state of 2.0. (That is the number of teacher preparation students divided by number of supervising faculty members.)

In addition, all Springfield College teacher preparation programs have been approved by the Massachusetts Department of Education and meet the standards for national teacher education organizations. Our elementary/special education program is approved at the state level for elementary licensure only. Additional coursework has been added to this program to enable students to add the teacher of students with moderate disabilities license. This mark of quality ensures that our students qualify for licensure in Massachusetts and enables them to easily get licensed/certified in other states.
