Passing Scores for Georgia

The Georgia edTPA Standard Setting Committee, consisting of EPP faculty and P–12 teachers and leaders, recommended a passing standard of 38, which is -1/2 Standard Error of Measurement (SEM) below the national edTPA recommendation of 42. The lowest score set by any state so far is 35, which is -1 SEM below the national recommendation. This score, 35, is -1/2 SEM below the Georgia standard setting committee recommendation. It was important to the Commission to give candidates, EPPs, and P–12 partners time to build capacity for achieving the Georgia standard setting committee recommendation.

The following table represents the Georgia Professional Standards Commission's decision on the edTPA passing score:
