New York State Teacher Certification Examinations - Title II

We are proud of our high pass rates, which significantly exceed New York State Education Department Requirements for certification. Our goal is to produce excellent educators who engage in ongoing inquiry and intellectual work and are committed to the highest standards of professionalism, democratic citizenship, quality and high achievement in a context that affirms human diversity. One measure of our success in achieving this goal is the performance of our students on the New York State Teacher Certification Examination. We are continuously engaged in efforts to improve our programs in order to improve teaching and learning for all children. Although most of our graduates remain in New York for their careers, graduates of SUNY New Paltz are teaching across the globe. Knowing this reinforces our commitments to excellence, diversity and continuous improvement of our work in educating teachers for the future.

Results for the 2013-2014, including results for the new certification exams, will be available from the New York State Education Department in September 2014 and will be posted at that time.
