About the PPAT Assessment

The PPAT assessment measures how you apply content knowledge and teaching skills in the classroom, and evaluates your ability to impact student learning as it relates to the InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards (PDF). During your student teaching experience, you’ll submit tasks and artifacts for the assessment based on your classroom activities.

The PPAT assessment is designed to help you:

  • be a more effective teacher in the classroom
  • identify your strengths and areas for improvement
  • continually refine your teaching practices
  • contribute to your professional growth
