Calvin alumni report needing to take some additional state tests for Washington certification (basic skills and content tests). Fingerprinting is also required.
One teacher reported needing to take a Washington state history course.
Update - We have heard that Washington is now requiring the edTPA assessment. It is unclear whether this assessment will be required for Michigan-certified teachers or not. You may consider student teaching in Chicago, where the edTPA assessment will be used.
