Dr. Amanda Bridges was selected on behalf of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, to join the standard setting panel for her certificate area, ECYA/Exceptional Needs Specialist: MMD. Only a few NBCTs in her certificate area were selected from the nation. Standard setting is a research-based process for establishing a performance standard that indicates accomplished teaching on those items. This process requires National Board Certified Teachers to make judgments about expected performance on those selected response items. Serving on this panel gives Amanda an opportunity to represent colleagues and the NBCT community in assisting the National Board in setting the standards for each component. Her participation also gives an opportunity for professional development and fellowship with other NBCTs. Her contribution will have a direct impact on the direction of the organization in the foreseeable future.
The panel will meet on August 7-8, 2017 in Chicago, IL. The work will be with other NBCTs making judgments about expected performance on selected response items.
