Public Comment

As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure our educator standards are aligned to the most current state and national standards, we invite you to review draft REPA 3 educator standards in the following areas:

  • Elementary Education Generalist
  • Middle School Social Studies
  • Social Studies - Historical Perspectives

A copy of the draft standards and public feedback will be shared with the Indiana State Board of Education prior to their approval.

CASA and Alternatives
As of July 1, 2019, successful completion of the basic skills testing requirement (CASA or an approved alternative) will no longer be mandatory for educator candidates. However, educator preparation programs may elect to continue to require CASA for program admission. This change was made by the 2019 Indiana General Assembly. To determine whether you need to take the CASA assessment, contact your educator preparation program directly.
NOTE: Praxis II tests taken and passed before May 31, 2014 can be accepted if they were the required tests in Indiana. Elementary Generalist Subtests and Early Childhood Subtests cannot be “mixed and matched”. We cannot accept partial tests from Praxis II and partial tests from Indiana CORE.

Indiana Developmental/Pedagogy Exam

Under the current licensing rules, REPA/REPA3, a pedagogy/developmental exam is required for all individuals that are applying for their first initial practitioner instructional license in addition to any required content exams. The pedagogy exams cover the strategies of teaching such as Methodology, Classroom Management, Student Development and Diversity, Learning Processes, Learning Environment, Instructional Planning, Assessments and the Professional Environment as a teacher at the respective developmental levels. These are topics that are covered in a teacher preparation program.
