Nebraska Master of Arts in Mathematics Education (MAME) Certification and Exam Requirements

 

Educators holding a current Nebraska teaching certificate may apply for full endorsement in additional teaching areas after completing a teacher preparation program in the new certification area. Provisional endorsement can be applied for after completing 50% of the teacher preparation program (see http://www.education.ne.gov/tcert/Gtchcert.html).

 

 

In Nebraska, WGU's Master of Arts in Mathematics Education (Middle Grades) program leads to an endorsement in Mathematics, Grades 5-9.


Nebraska requires seven weeks of student teaching of those seeking to add a new subject endorsement at a new grade level (i.e. an elementary school teacher who wants to teach middle grades math). WGU's Masters in Science and Math Education endorsement programs do not provide this student teaching component, and thus the middle grades program is only suitable for Nebraska educators already licensed at the 5-9 level.  

Middle Grades Mathematics Exam Requirement:

Content Exam: Praxis 5169, Middle School: Mathematics

This exam also satisfies the WGU Program Requirement for Master of Arts in Mathematics Education (Middle Grades). You must pass this exam to graduate from this program and be recommended for certification. 

 

 

In Nebraska, WGU's Master of Arts in Mathematics Education (Secondary) program leads to an endorsement in Mathematics Grades 6-12.


Nebraska requires seven weeks of student teaching of those seeking to add a new subject endorsement at a new grade level (i.e. an elementary school teacher who wants to teach secondary math). WGU's Masters in Science and Math Education endorsement programs do not provide this student teaching component, and thus are only suitable for Nebraska educators already licensed at the 7-12 level.  

Secondary Mathematics Exam Requirement:

Content Exam: Praxis 5161, Mathematics: Content Knowledge

This exam also satisfies the WGU Program Requirement for Master of Arts in Mathematics Education (Secondary). You must pass this exam to graduate from this program and be recommended for certification.
