Foundations of Reading Test for Wisconsin

As a result of the Wisconsin Read to Lead Task Force recommendations, a new statutory provision was created. The specific statute 118.19 (14) puts into place a required content test in Foundations of Reading for all Grade K-5 teachers, special education teachers, reading teachers, and reading specialists seeking initial licensure.

Updates – 7/15/2013

Teacher licensure in Wisconsin is divided by age group levels. When a student has been admitted to the program as a candidate, he/she will begin to take education courses that will prepare him/her for one of the licensure levels listed.
