In an attempt to gain some understanding of the actual results of the State of Washington's certification policies and the institutions approved under those policies, data were collected on students who received first teaching certificates from public teacher education institutions. Data were gathered on 1,540 students from Central Washington University, Eastern Washington University, University of Washington, Washington State University, and Western Washington University. Four broad categories of data were included: (1) certification data--basic demographic information and information on the type of certificate granted and levels for which the certificate was endorsed; (2) academic data--dates of graduation and program completion, cumulative and major grade point averages, and student majors and minors; (3) admissions test data--composite verbal and quantitative scores on the Washington Pre-College Test; and (4) initial employment data--students' employment status in the fall of 1983. All of each sampled student's university course work was classified in ten broad subject categories according to the departments by which the courses were offered. Within each category, courses completed were further classified as education-related or non-education-related, depending upon the course titles and catalog descriptions. Data are accompanied by narrative discussion. Numerous tables are provided. (JD)
