You’ve turned in the homework, taken the tests and now it’s time to demonstrate just how prepared you are to lead a classroom.
The edTPA is a state-required, subject-specific teacher performance assessment that is completed by a student teacher during their final school-based experience. The information throughout this site covers everything you need to know about preparing for and completing the edTPA. Not only will you have a course focused on the edTPA, but there are also faculty and staff dedicated to helping you to complete the process successfully.
Overview of edTPA
Throughout this process you’ll need to take several steps to complete your required tasks. Below is a general overview of what to expect. If you want detailed tasks broke down by weeks click the button below.
1. Review criteria and expectations
Carefully reading provided materials and resources will help ensure you fully understand what is expected of you during edTPA.
2. Inform your cooperating teacher
This process may be new to cooperating teachers, therefore discussing what is required of you and them for edTPA is important.
3. Ask for permission and practice confidentiality
In order to accurately capture teaching methods, video recording is used. It is necessary to ask for parent/guardian permission beforehand and practicing confidentiality is required. A copy of this permission form is available form your seminar instructor on D2L.
4. Gather assets and submit for scoring
After you have completed the requirements, you must gather and prepare the necessary artifacts for submission to Pearson.
