The Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC)

Released 6/13/13: New Interactive Guide for the InTASC Standards: CCSSO has released an innovative online resource to promote collaborative professional learning for teachers for the InTASC standards and learning progressions. InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards: An Interactive Guide to Understanding and Applying the InTASC Standards to Teacher Effectiveness and Student Success is packed with resources, including videos, in a highly interactive cloud-based e-reading platform called the LumiBook. To access to this free resource, go to www.lumi-book.com/intasc.

The Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) is a consortium of state education agencies and national educational organizations dedicated to the reform of the preparation, licensing, and on-going professional development of teachers. Created in 1987, InTASC's primary constituency is state education agencies responsible for teacher licensing, program approval, and professional development. Its work is guided by one basic premise: An effective teacher must be able to integrate content knowledge with the specific strengths and needs of students to assure that all students learn and perform at high levels.

Recently Released: InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards and Learning Progressions for Teachers 1.0: A Resource for Ongoing Teacher Development (2013)

The InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards and Learning Progressions for Teachers 1.0: A Resource for Ongoing Teacher Development (2013) contains both the model core teaching standards released in 2011 and the new learning progressions for teachers. The progressions are a support tool to promote and improve teacher effectiveness and growth. They describe the increasing complexity and sophistication of teaching practice for each Model Core Teaching Standard across three developmental levels so teacher candidates, practicing teachers and other educators can see what increasingly effective practice looks like.
