Florida Teacher Certification Exam Workshops

Students in educator preparation programs within the college use the web-based assessment platform, Via™ by Watermark, to track their progress toward mastery in specified areas of professional knowledge called standards.
Teacher candidates whose subject areas include teaching language arts develop more in-depth knowledge and skills for teaching English learners. UCF offers the ESOL endorsement through an approach called “ESOL infusion,” which means that a substantial part of the ESOL endorsement curriculum is embedded into courses other than ESOL program (i.e., TSL prefix) courses.
