A Way To Professionalizing The Academe

In order to stadardize the system of producing teachers in every state in the country the Educational Teaching Service (ETS) which headed the conduct of a specialized examination wherein the applicant must be able to accomplish it with a passing grade of (660) based on the National School Psychology Examination. The grade that you garnered at the end of the exam is valid for nine years preceding the date when you took the examination, beyond those years your exam grade would expire therefore requiring you to take the exam again. The series of Praxis formulated by the Educational testing Service contains the Psychologist test which has a code of 10400.

Knowing what ETS really is

It is a non profit organization that pursues to give quality and to provide a fair play education for every person in the globe. They are aiming to assist the students to comprehend, the teachers to be effective propagators of information and the parents to ascertain the academic and intellectual advancement of their child. This is done by ETS by listening to the commentaries of the academe, the parents, and the critics. As they continue to foster this they were able to discover the needs of their students and the learning institutions. ETS was able to enact on their goal by formulating state-of-the-art and innovative services and products.

The Praxis Series of Examination

It is a series of assessment examinations that the states utilize in order to measure the capacity of a person who would want to be a teacher. The prospective teachers are to by undertake a procedure much like a licensure examination that would certify that their skills were appropriate for the job. The test is composed of three parts. Praxis I examination calculates the fundamental educational skills of an applicant while the Praxis II examination aims to gauge the universal and subject detail knowledge and instructing skills. Praxis III examination evaluates the classroom routine of the applicant.

Praxis I has the title of Pre-Professional Skills Assessment (PPST), the exams consists of tests calculating the basic skills such as reading, writing, and arithmetic. This part could be taken in two set-ups whether paper-based or computer-based.

The computer-based examination is presented by a scheduled time in testing centers. Usually, an applicant takes two hours to finish the exam but the definite time for each portion of the exam is quite longer. The reading exam with 46 questions has been allotted 5 minutes, same way with mathematics while writing has 44 questions with an allotted time of only 38 minutes. The applicant is also required to compose an essay for 30 minutes.

The computer-based exam is also presented in a combined examination which will be distributed at a single session. If you are to take the combined examination there will be four parts in your exam theres reading, arithmetic, multiple-choice composition and the essay writing. The proctor will give you a 15-minute break in between the arithmetic and writing part of the exam. This test is undertaken longer than the original one because it usually lasts almost five hours.

The paper-based examination has allotted an hour for a 40-questioned exam in reading and mathematics while the essay writing and the multiple-choice writing segment both have 30 minutes each. Of course, your score could be determined by the number of correct answers that you have, dont you worry because there will be no deductions for incorrect answers with your praxis exam.

Honestly...I Never Know What To Say

6. What do you say now when someone asks you: "What do you do?"

That's from the questionnaire all my students send in right after they sign up for my 3 Scripts (100 customers 100 days) telecourse. Here's a typical answer from a gent, a veteran in the business:

"Honestly...I never know what to say. The "Health Consultant" line bores me. "I'm a Network Marketer" line turns my stomach. "I'm a National Director with MY COMPANY NAME" line is responded to by yawns, mine included.

Believe it or not, I usually make something up on the spot, so I don't have to use one of those terrible opening one-liners! Crazy, but true. And then I hope that the person I am speaking to asks me what I am drinking so that I can tell them all about NAME of MY PRODUCT."

Network marketing is a business whose money-making mantra is:

Talk to people: Talk to people: Talk to people.

And yet no company nor its trainers give new recruits any usable instruction on what they should say to people about what they do, what they market, or how they make income (for when they're talking to potential sales reps.)

At Starbucks, the new recruits get 20-25 hours training learning to make 33 basic drinks and another 30+ variations before they set foot on the floor. All that to earn $6.75/hour.

So for 10 hours/week, the new employee earns about $200/mo. And that's AFTER they have demonstrated that they know how to make 33 drinks and the variations.

How much income is it, again, that they offer recruits in network marketing for working say 10 hours/week? Was that $1000/mo? Or $5000?

And how much time did they train you in how to talk to people? Did you ever have to demonstrate that you know what to say to people in all the different situations you come across them in?

Scripts are kind of like drinks, aren't they?

Short, sweet, customized to you, with different ones for different situations.

Of course, this situation gives me a little business so I can fill in the gap.

Wonder why this is considered so unimportant, though, by the powers that be.

Especially with a 102% drop out rate.
