Candidate Assessment

The Candidate Assessment domain shows how well educator preparation providers are doing at preparing candidates to pass the pedagogical and content-area assessments required to obtain a Tennessee teaching license.

Metrics

This domain includes two scored metrics.

Pedagogical Assessment Pass Rate

What is this metric?

This metric reports the percentage of cohort members who passed either the Praxis Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) assessment or the edTPA assessment within two attempts.

 

Content Assessment Pass Rate

What is this metric?

This metric reports the percentage of cohort members who passed the content assessments required for their endorsement area(s) within two attempts. This includes both subject-area assessments, which measure cohort members' knowledge of the subject they will be teaching, and literacy assessments, which measure cohort members' knowledge about teaching reading.
