It supports quantum theory.

Work Step by Step

The base idea of quantum theory is that energy is quantized between orbitals. Through the photoelectric effect, electrons released quantized amounts of energy in the form of light when they went to lower energy levels. Since the quantized nature of the energy release can be seen through the type of light released, the photoelectric effect supports quantum theory.
