Georgia Educator Ethics Assessment


Take the Assessment

The Georgia Ethics assessments are computer delivered via the Georgia Ethics assessment system. Each assessment is comprised of seven modules that combine instruction and testing. Five of the modules include an end-of-module test. The Program Exit level of both assessments also includes an end-of-course, or summative, test.

How It Works

  • You will receive an email giving you access to the Georgia Ethics assessment system after you complete or update your MyPSC account and enter your reason for testing on the GaPSC website.
  • You access the assessment virtually by logging into a secure web service, registering and submitting your payment, creating a personal testing account profile, and then completing the modules and tests online. You can do this with your own computer or tablet from home, or anywhere you have Internet access.*
  • Each module is designed to take no more than 30 minutes to complete; however, modules are not timed and can be completed at your own pace and across multiple days. If you decide to take the assessment over a period of time, when you log back in to the system you will be able to pick up right where you left off.
  • You must complete each module and the end-of-module test before you can move on to the next module. Note: The first two modules do not have an end-of-module test.

* You should use either Internet Explorer®, Mozilla Firefox®, or Google Chrome™ to register and pay for this assessment. The payment screens may not display properly in Safari®. You may take the actual assessment in any of the browsers listed above.

Program Entry candidates: You have two attempts to complete each end-of-module test. If you do not successfully complete each test by the second attempt, you will be permitted to move on to the next module and your status will be reported to your designated score recipients.

Program Exit candidates: You have five attempts to pass each end-of-module test. If passing status is not achieved by the fifth attempt, your access to the assessment will be revoked. To regain access, you will need to pay another test fee.

Note: The instruction, scenarios, and solutions presented in this assessment are not legal advice. Ethical decisions are highly dependent on the specific facts and circumstances of a situation. The situations and options for resolution offered in this assessment are for illustrative purposes only, and may not cover all of the possible scenarios, obstacles, decisions, and outcomes associated with the ethical situation being presented. These scenarios should be treated as hypothetical examples, and should not be used as the determining factor in the handling of a real-life ethical scenario. The educator's call for judgment may be different from those expected in the scenarios presented in this assessment. The situations presented in the assessment may be more or less realistic than a real-life scenario, in order to illustrate the various factors that contribute to each specific scenario’s potential outcomes and to help guide the educator to clearly understand the scenario and its possible options for resolution. When faced with ethical decisions, educators are urged to take advantage of guidance from your supervisor, as well as resources available to them through their program providers, school and school district personnel, the GaPSC, and other appropriate sources.
