I would like to know when these changes will be announced and what we need to do to prepare for these changes?

Memos were sent to the educator preparation programs for distribution to students, faculty/staff, and educator preparation leaders on January 15, 2013.  The CollegeBASE will not be administered as an entry assessment for teacher preparation after December 31, 2013.  There are four remaining dates when candidates can take the complete test and the individual subtests.  The remaining 2013 test dates are:  March 16-23, June 10-15, and July 29-August 3.  Candidates who need to pass one or more of the subtests will need to pass those on one of two remaining test dates:  September 24-31 and November 18-23.  Candidates who have not passed the complete assessment will have to pass the new test beginning on January 1, 2014.
