As part of Georgia’s collaborative and intentional focus on equipping educators with knowledge of the Georgia Code of Ethics for Educators, as well as ethical understanding to guide decision making, we announce that registration for the Georgia Educator Ethics Assessment has changed as of April 9, 2020. 

Initial teaching candidates must pass the Georgia Educator Ethics Assessment – Program Exit (Test 360) for the Pre-Service certificate, prior to program admission. Previously, these candidates would have taken the Program Entry version (Test 350).

Test takers are no longer able to register for the Program Entry versions (Test 350).

Please note the words “program exit” will eventually be dropped from the names of the assessments.

For initial teacher candidates seeking program admission for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020: Test takers who have recently registered for the program entry version ethics assessment, but who have not started the assessment, will be notified that their registration will be transferred to the program exit version.

Test takers who are currently taking or have already taken the program entry version of the ethics assessment, will still need to attempt the program exit version prior to program completion and pass it for certification.

For initial teacher candidates already enrolled (Spring 2020 or earlier): Test takers who are currently enrolled will still need to attempt the program exit version prior to program completion and pass it for certification.
