Introducing Praxis™ Performance Assessments for Teachers from ETS
A meaningful measure of a teacher candidate's readiness for the classroom
ETS is pleased to introduce Praxis™ Performance Assessment for Teachers (PPAT) — part of The Praxis Series™ assessments. The PPAT provides a solution, developed by educators for educators, for measuring a teacher candidate's readiness to teach effectively. The national testing program will launch in the fall of 2014.
We've listened to the needs and concerns of state department representatives and educators in teacher preparation programs. The PPAT will include the elements that they have told us are critical when measuring a teacher's performance and growth as an educator during student teaching.
ETS is the trusted source in performance-based assessments and has the most extensive history of any measurement organization in developing, delivering and scoring assessments of educator performance including the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards assessments, California TPA, Washington ProTeach and other customized state performance assessments.
