Oral communication competency and teacher certification in the U.S.: Reality and recommendations
This article reports the results of a national survey of state teacher certification directors conducted by a subcommittee of the Committee on Assessment and Testing of SCA. Results indicate that there is a lack of uniformity among states on standards and means of assessing communication competence. Seven recommendations are made for ways in which SCA can play a stronger role in serving as an advocate for the importance of oral communication competence in teacher education. © 1991, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
