  title={Characteristics of Effective Alternative Teacher Certification Programs},
  author={Donald Richard Humphrey and MARJORIE E. WECHSLER and Heather Hough},
This paper is based on an analysis of seven alternative certification programs to determine the characteristics of effective programs. It presents findings from an analysis designed to shed light on the effects of personal, program, and contextual inputs on teaching outcomes. To account for within-program variation, the analysis clusters individuals across programs based on common background characteristics, program experiences, and school contexts.
