    Type of Review: Revision.
    Title: Higher Education Act (HEA) Title II Reporting Forms on 
Teacher Quality and Preparation.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs; not-
for-profit institutions.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
     Responses: 1,309.

    Abstract: The Higher Education Act of 1998 calls for annual reports 
from states and institutions of higher education (IHE) on the quality 
of teacher education and related matters (Pub. L. 105-244, section 
207:20 U.S.C. 1027). The purpose of the reports is to provide greater 
accountability in the preparation of America's teaching forces and to 
provide information and incentives for its improvement. Most IHEs that 
have teacher preparation programs must report annually to their states 
on the performance of their program completers on teacher certification 
tests. States, in turn, must report test performance information, 
institution by institution, to the Secretary of Education, along with 
institution rankings. They must also report on their requirements for 
licensing teachers, state standards, alternative routes to 
certifications, waivers, and related items.
