Fall 2018 edTPA Handbook & Templates Posted

The 2018-19 national handbooks, templates, and support resources (except for ELE) have now been posted in the AACTE Resource Library as an advance resource for programs. All materials for all fields will be available for candidates to use for submissions through the platform providers beginning in September 2018.

Overall, there are no changes to national edTPA handbook content for all subject areas, and virtually no changes to support resources. Minimal formatting updates have been made to make these documents accessibility-friendly. We encourage you to check the errata, which are updated on a regular basis, to see a list of minor subject-specific corrections and clarifications.

FALL 2018 edTPA HANDBOOK & TEMPLATE RELEASE

Overall, there will be no changes to national edTPA handbook content for all subject areas in fall 2018. There are also virtually no changes to Making Good Choices, Understanding Rubric Level Progressions (URLPs), and academic language handout content. The handbooks and templates, along with those key resources, are getting minor formatting updates to ensure that they are accessibility-friendly and have updated copyright/version labeling. Accessible versions of the national handbooks, templates and support resources (except for ELE) will be posted in the AACTE Resource Library in May 2018. All materials for all fields will be available for candidates to use for submissions beginning in September 2018. We encourage you to check the errata, which are updated on a regular basis, to see a list of any minor subject-specific corrections and clarifications. The errata include a versions chart, which you can compare to the version number on the cover of the handbooks to ensure you are using the latest ones.

edTPA HANDBOOK IMPROVEMENT SURVEY

As the designers and developers of edTPA, SCALE regularly seeks input from the field to inform assessment improvements. We see this feedback as critical to our commitment to support programs and candidates as they implement edTPA and prepare to serve students. We are currently gathering input on how to make the assessment more user-friendly and easier to navigate, while preserving its core structure and rubric constructs.
Please note that any changes we make will not affect the reliability and validity of the established edTPA rubrics. The proposed updates focus on streamlining handbook format, directions, and prompts to increase clarity. Our primary goal is to improve candidate engagement with the educative elements of the assessment – in other words, to grow and learn from edTPA as they reflect on their beginning teaching. Click here to take a brief 5-minute survey about these proposed updates at your earliest convenience.
