State Testing and Assessment Requirements for Initial and Continuing General Education Teachers MS Word PDF - There are multiple requirements for teachers to become and remain certified and/or licensed to teach, including different types of tests and assessments. Passing one or more exams is a common requirement for initial teacher licensure. Assessment requirements vary across states from the type of tests administered to the required passing score(s).
