1e)  Does the analysis identify particular courses that are often taught by non-highly qualified teachers?

Identifying the courses often taught by non-HQ teachers

In addition to the analysis in 1a above which examines classes most often taught by Non-HQ teachers from Phase I data, ADE has also used another method used to identify and track particular courses that are often taught by non-HQT teachers.  In this analyses ADE staff have examined statewide requests to the Arizona State Board of Education for the issuance of Emergency Teaching Certificates. Using this methodology, the following courses have been identified as often taught by non-highly qualified teachers:

1.

Special Education (all 8 areas combined)

2.

Elementary Education

3.

Mathematics

4.

English

5.   Science

ADE desired to look at more than a single year of data in making decisions about Emergency Certificates.  Because comparable data for the years prior to 2005-06 were not available, ADE made two separate comparisons which provided comparison data, even though each has certain limitations.  In the first displayed in Table 8, ADE compared overall Emergency Certification data for 2005 -06 to the period of from July 1 through September 15, 2006.

In its first analysis, ADE created Table 7 below which shows the number and areas in which the AZ State Board of Education issued Emergency Teaching Certificates for the 2005-06 school year and the number of certificates issued in the year to date for 2006-07.  It is displayed from the greatest to least number issued.  The content areas in which the most Emergency Teaching Certificates issued in this group were:

1.

Special Education (all 8 areas combined)

2.

Elementary Education

3.

Mathematics

4.

English

5.

Science (all areas combined)
