Raising the bar for the teaching profession means becoming more selective with incoming candidates and more rigorous, differentiated training. Educator Prep Programs are a crucial part of the ecosystem responsible for the quality of our teachers and therefore, our students’ education. The data reflected on the Educator Preparation Programs Scorecards will create transparency and urgency to raise the standard of preparation for our incoming educators, and will benefit districts, educator prep programs themselves, and most importantly, our students.

Performance Categories for Ed Prep


The New Mexico Educator Preparation Program Scorecard provides prospective New Mexico teachers, local education agencies and educator preparation programs (EPPS) with the opportunity to learn more about how the EPPS are preparing teachers.

The goal of these scorecards is to improve the quality and transparency of educator preparation in New Mexico as the EPP scorecard evaluates the effectiveness of EPPs throughout the state.

To determine an EPP’s final classification, the educator preparation program was evaluated on admission facts, candidate facts, the hiring and retention of its graduates, and the performance of the program’s graduates in the teaching field.
