Performance

This is a measure of an EPP’s performance in the four scored domains on the Report Card: Candidate Profile, Employment, Provider Impact, and Candidate Assessment.

Overall Performance

Exceeds Expectations

What does this mean?

"Does Not Meet Expectations" means the provider received less than 40% of possible points. "Meets Expectations" means the provider received 40-74.9% of possible points. "Exceeds Expectations" means the provider received 75% or more of possible points.

Why is this important?

Overall Performance indicates how well a provider is doing in the State Board’s key priority areas for preparing educators: recruiting strong, diverse candidates to teach in the areas of greatest need; preparing candidates for employment in Tennessee public schools; and preparing candidates to effectively support student learning.
