Scoring and Reporting

The passing standards for the tests that are included in the ProEthica® program were established by ETS with input from committees of educators and educator preparation faculty. Once you have completed the program, you will be able to demonstrate knowledge of the foundational principles underlying the Model Code of Ethics for Educators (MCEE) and the principles of ethical decision making.

Passing Scores

Score Reporting

Scores for each end-of-module test and the summative assessment (available in ProEthica Essentials only) are automatically reported weekly to your enrollment manager. If the ProEthica program is required by your state, the state department will also receive your scores. Only performance on the end-of-module tests and the summative assessment (if applicable) are reported. Data from the module lessons are not collected or reported. They are for learning purposes only. Note: Your score report will show your current score and highest score to date for each end-of-module test and summative assessment.

Score Availability

Your scores remain available for you to view on the "My History" page in the ProEthica Learning Management System (LMS) for one year from the date you completed the program. After one year has passed, your LMS system account will expire and you will no longer be able to view scores in "My History."
