Abstract: The design and development of subject matter tests for the Florida Master Teacher Program are described. The psycho- metric qualities of each test and a profile of teachers earning the designation of Associate Master Teacher are presented. Florida’s future directions in testing teachers’ subject matter knowledge are discussed, particularly through the Raymond B. Stewart Career Achievement Program act of 1986.
