Review the recommendation from the Testing Barriers Work Group to change alternative route testing entrance requirements for the WEST-E/NES and give input into the technical WAC language changes needed. The work group will provide input in order to create definitions needed for specific areas in the Alternative Routes WAC, including residency, mentored internship, summer intensive, employment, field placement, student teaching, and a few other areas. The group will approach this through the lens of examining best practices in the field, and identifying areas of inconsistency or confusion, in order to come to final agreement on definitions to provide needed clarity. The scope and purpose of this effort is to further define these specific terms related to alt routes in order to create more clarity for programs.
