Candidate Assessment

The Candidate Assessment domain evaluates a provider's performance in preparing candidates to pass the pedagogical and content-area assessments required to obtain a Tennessee teaching license.

Performance

Exceeds Expectations

What does this mean?

"Does Not Meet Expectations" means the provider received less than 50% of possible points. "Meets Expectations" means the provider received 50-74.9% of possible points. "Exceeds Expectations" means the provider received 75% or more of possible points.

Why is this important?

Candidate assessments help ensure that new teachers enter the classroom with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful. EPPs play a key role in preparing candidates for these assessments.
