The PPEMs have three purposes: first, to give EPPs (Educator Preparation Providers) and their
programs access to data to inform improvement; second, to hold EPPs accountable for the quality of educators they produce; and third, to
provide transparency to the public, including the K-12 education community, about the quality of teachers and leaders produced by each EPP.
The ultimate goal of the PPEM is to improve student learning in Georgia through raising the quality of the teachers and leaders responsible
for their education.
The PPEM ratings for teacher preparation programs will be official and consequential beginning with the Academic Year 2018-19 PPEMs, to be published in Fall 2019 (see graphic below).
