To be considered as a completer with UTM’s EPP and be considered for licensure, candidates must pass state-mandated content and pedagogy tests (Praxis tests) for their licensure area. The Praxis exams are administered through Pearson Assessments. Results are monitored and reported annually for the university and compared to state results. Institutional pass rates are generated by the Title II report and are calculated based on Tennessee’s Cutscores.
In accordance with state and federal law, Educator Preparation Programs are required to annually collect and report on specific information from initial licensure programs. Information includes, but not limited to, admission requirements, number of enrolled candidates, number of program completers, race and ethnicity statistics, clinical experiences, number of candidates prepared in the various subjects, assessment pass rate data, etc.
Multiple openings are available in Greenfield as well as Cumberland, Dickson, Weakley, and Robertson County Schools.
