Georgia Educator Ethics Assessment


Georgia Ethics Assessments Scores

How Are the Georgia Ethics Assessments Scored?

The Georgia Ethics assessments are scored electronically following each end-of-module test.

How Do Test Takers Get Their Scores?

Scores are displayed on screen after each end-of-module test and are also available through "My History" in the Georgia Ethics assessment system. 

Note: At the end of each end-of-module test, test takers will also see the correct answer for each question, their response, and a rationale for the correct answer. This information is only available on this screen; it is not available in "My History" with their scores, and once they leave this screen, they will not be able to see it again.

How Do Program Providers Get Scores?

Scores are available to program providers through ETS® Data Manager (EDM) for the GACE® assessments. A file layout for the Georgia Ethics scores is provided in EDM. New scores are typically available every Friday after 4 p.m. ET.

How Do Test Takers Know if They Passed?

The Program Entry level of the assessments is reported as “Completed” or “Not Completed.” Test takers do not receive a score; however, all of the training modules and end-of-module tests must be completed to receive credit toward program admission.

The Program Exit level of the assessments is reported as “Passed” or “Not Passed.” See Candidate Scores for more information.

How Can Program Providers Use Scores?

Program providers can use the results of the assessments to determine the amount and type of ethics instruction needed by candidates who are entering their programs. Results can also help guide their educator ethics curriculum and instruction.
