Back to TopQ:What is the Teacher Educator's Professional Inventory (EPI)?
A:The Teacher Educators Professional Inventory (EPI)® is an assessment tool that allows schools and districts to predict the impact teacher candidates will have on student achievement. Backed by a research consortium consisting of highly skilled psychometricians, predictive modeling specialists, and Ph.D.s from various disciplines, the Teacher EPI ranks candidates based on core success indicators (teaching skills, cognitive ability, and attitudinal factors) that identify highly effective teachers who deliver student growth. EPI measures the correlation between responses to assessment items and the likelihood that candidates will generate a particular degree of student growth. For more information about the Teacher EPI, visit to TopQ:What is the Principal Educator's Professional Inventory (P-EPI)?A:The Principal Educators Professional Inventory (P-EPI) is a data-driven platform built based on years of research that uses high-level analytics to predict how principal candidates will impact schools. After candidates complete the P-EPI assessment, the tool ranks their strengths in four core areas that indicate principal success: leadership skills, leadership dispositions, principal responsibilities and qualifications.Back to TopQ:How long will it take to complete the EPI?A:Applicants are given 90 minutes to complete the Teacher EPI, although the average completion time is approximately 45 minutes.
