WASHINGTON – Nov. 3, 2017 – A newly released public report on the third full year of edTPA implementation provides a detailed picture to date of edTPA’s continued expansion and support as the first nationally available performance-based assessment and support system for teacher licensure, program completion and accreditation. Nearly 35,000 candidate portfolios are included in the findings, and analyses are presented in the report to reaffirm reliability and consistency of scoring, examine evidence of validity and document trends in candidate performance by demographic group.

Growing Use of edTPA

edTPA, exclusively owned by Stanford University and developed by educators for educators, has been used operationally to assess teacher candidates since fall 2013; it is now used by educator preparation programs in 40 states. Membership in the edTPA online community, first launched in 2011, has grown to about 9,700 faculty from more than 750 educator preparation programs, the report notes. The extensive support infrastructure available to edTPA members includes more than 170 resources that have been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times.
