The Praxis Performance Assessment for Teachers (PPAT) is a performance-based assessment offering a comprehensive picture of a teacher candidate's potential for success in the classroom. It not only measures a candidate's current level of proficiency but also serves as a platform for continuous learning and improvement.

The PPAT assessment allows candidates to demonstrate their teaching skills authentically while working in classrooms with students. Through a series of formative and summative tasks, candidates are provided with valuable feedback to guide their reflective practice and professional growth.

At the core of the PPAT assessment are four distinct tasks, each focusing on important aspects of teaching:

  1. Knowledge of Students and the Learning Environment
  2. Assessment and Data Collection to Measure and Inform Student Learning
  3. Designing Instruction for Student Learning
  4. Implementing and Analyzing Instruction to Promote Student Learning

Navigating the PPAT assessment process is made easier with the support and resources available on the PPAT website.
