Missouri Educator Profile (MEP)

The Missouri Educator Profile (MEP) is an assessment of work style preferences used to support the development of effective educator work habits. It is not being used for admission into a program. There are no right or wrong answers, so it is important to answer the questions honestly.

Your results are presented in a Development Report so that you can better understand how your current work habits compare to those of effective educators and what you can do to develop your work habits further. You are encouraged to review the results with your advisor and to create a plan for your professional development.

Although it is not a requirement, some preparation programs may instruct you to complete the MEP.
