How National Board Support Courses Work
The National Board Support Courses are earned by demonstrating competence in a specific skill via a portfolio of evidence created through classroom practice. All courses are based on a robust, standardized blueprint, grounded in four areas of instructional efficacy research including, cycles of inquiry, job-embedded supports, rigorously calibrated assessment, and portfolio-based learning.
