Getting More Educated

February 11, 1989|Clipboard researched by Henry Rivero and Rick VanderKnyff / Los Angeles Times

The California Basic Educational Skills Test, which was first instituted by the state in 1983, measures an individual's knowledge of basic reading, writing and mathematics. State law requires that anyone applying for a first teaching or a service credential must demonstrate proficiency in these areas. The CBEST is also required of anyone seeking or renewing an emergency credential, unless that person already holds a teaching credential for which a baccalaureate degree is required. The test may be required of anyone seeking a teaching position who has not taught during the preceeding 39 months, and it must be taken for diagnostic purposes by anyone seeking to enter an approved teacher education program.

The chart below shows the number of Orange County teaching students who have taken and passed the CBEST each year since its inception. The listings are by each local school having a teacher-preparation program.
