Kind of assessment: An in-depth yet simple and standardized assessment of fundamental skills involving a 90-minute written test + 30-minute verbal test.

Competencies covered: Subject Understanding, Teaching Practices, Written and Verbal Communication; based on the CENTA Standards, a globally-benchmarked and nationally-recognized competency framework for teachers.
