"Prepared" refers to completing a teacher education program or a student teaching assignment but not yet having earned a teaching certificate. Percents may not sum to 100 because of rounding. SAT combined score is derived as either the sum of SAT verbal and mathematics scores or the ACT composite score converted to an estimated SAT combined score.
