Sixth-Year Certificate > Graduation Requirements

Connecticut Administrator Test

All candidates seeking administrative certification must pass the Connecticut Administrator Test (CAT), which consists of two school improvement case studies (three hours) and two instructional analysis and teacher support exercises (three and one-half hours). Candidates register to take this test through the Connecticut State Department of Education. Please see the EASTCONN webstite for more information about the test and a link to register. Students may begin taking modules of the CAT as they are ready at any time during the program of studies but must pass all modules prior to receiving institutional recommendation. The department offers review for the CAT exam prior to each exam. See the department calendar for details. In addition the student must complete form 170A from the Connecticut Department of Education to apply for certification.


Recommendation for Certification

Recommendation for certification occurs when students have completed all courses required in the planned program with a grade of B or better, passed the qualifying examination, satisfactorily completed the internship and passed the internship portfolio. In addition, Connecticut certification requires a course in special education that addresses exceptionalities (included giftedness) and inclusion and, for people who earned initial certification out of state, Praxis I (a test of basic skills). The department chair or designee recommends candidates to the School of Education and Professional Studies certification coordinator who in turn makes recommendations to the state.
