Updated Guidance for Candidates Impacted by School Closures

With many educator preparation programs (EPPs) and P–12 school districts impacted by COVID-19, the following guidance is provided to programs and teacher candidates in need of options for successfully preparing and submitting an edTPA portfolio.

Pearson will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates as events warrant. The following guidance can be found on edTPA.com.

Virtual Learning Environments

The edTPA program has a “Virtual Learning Environment” option available to candidates who prepare and provide instruction to students in virtual learning environments. This option is currently accessed through an alternative arrangements process. For more information and to download the request form, please review the information available on the Requesting Alternative Arrangements due to a Virtual Learning Environment page.

Registration Extension Available to Candidates

Teacher candidates have 18-months to prepare and submit a finalized portfolio from the date of edTPA registration, for both initial submissions and retakes. To provide additional support to teacher candidates impacted by COVID-19, on April 6, 2020 all registrations will be extended to expire on December 5, 2021. The extension will apply to open registrations (e.g., initial submissions and retakes) without the need for candidates to contact Pearson.

Two Additional Submission and Reporting Dates Added to the 2019–2020 Submission and Reporting Schedule

Two additional submission and reporting dates have been added to the 2019–2020 submission and reporting schedule to support candidates impacted by school closures due to COVID-19.

  • Submit by June 18, 2020, to receive scores on July 9, 2020
  • Submit by August 20, 2020, to receive scores on September 10, 2020

Candidates should utilize the current edTPA handbooks available in their portfolio platforms for preparing and submitting portfolios for the remainder of the 2019–2020 submission and reporting schedule. The 2020–2021 edTPA submission and reporting schedule is also available. The schedule provides the submission deadlines with score reporting dates after September 10, 2020.

edTPA Coordinators and program faculty members who need additional information, or have questions regarding this topic, may contact edTPA EPP Support at edtpaeppsupport@pearson.com, or by telephone at (866) 613-3278.

edTPA COVID-19 Update

On behalf of SCALE, Pearson, and AACTE, we would like to assure you that our main priority is the health and well-being of all learners, prospective teachers, faculty, P-12 educators, parents and their communities.  We are carefully monitoring the information about COVID-19 and are aware of the many educator preparation program (EPP) and school closures around the country. We will continue to stay informed of the situation and discuss ways in which we may support states and EPPs as they consider how to meet program and state requirements. We are supporting and partnering with states as they discuss options to best address their policy questions and needs.
