The Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE) has prepared three documents in two subject areas to demonstrate points of alignment among the Common Core State Standards, edTPA prompts/rubrics, and NCTE and NCTM pedagogical standards used by CAEP.
Read more about these documents here. Please note that these documents are available only to edTPA members.
The Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE) and the American Association for Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE) would like to invite higher education administrators and instructors who use edTPA, as well as teacher educators, veteran K-12 teachers and other stakeholders to be part of the edTPA National Academy of consultants.
The National Academy will provide a network of expert teachers and higher education faculty to support the implementation of edTPA in teacher preparation programs nationwide. National Academy members will serve as trainers or benchmarkers, provide implementation support and become national leaders within a professional learning community.
The Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity and the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education are pleased to announce the public release of the 2013 edTPA Field Test: Summary Report. The report describes edTPA design, development efforts by the profession for the profession, data informing validity and reliability studies, and field test and standard-setting results.
For additional information regarding edTPA implementation and use, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2013 National edTPA Implementation Conference was held November 1-2 at the University of San Diego. 400 representatives from higher education participated, deepening their understanding of edTPA, asking difficult questions and sharing strategies and best practices with colleagues from across the country. Videos of presenters and their PowerPoints will be available in the coming weeks. Please be sure to visit our website often for updates.
As we move into operational use of edTPA with a professional performance standard (to be released on November 8, 2013), some candidates, whose edTPA has been submitted and officially scored in the Pearson system, may be required to retake edTPA. SCALE has developed a set of guidelines to assist programs as they examine candidate performance and advise candidates on the retake process. Program faculty will find the Guidelines for edTPA Retake Decision-making and Support in the Resource Library. Directions and timelines for candidates to submit retake materials are found at www.edtpa.com.
SCALE has developed a new version of Making Good Choices (MGC) to provide particular support for candidates preparing for edTPA in Special Education. Following the same format as the original MGC, the new version poses questions and provides answers that guide candidates to consider their own teaching contexts and the particular strengths and challenges of the students they teach. The Special Education MGC explains and provides examples of the curricular areas of special education and associated learning targets for focus students. The document is available in the Resource Library. edTPA coordinators and associated program faculty can download the MGC and distribute to candidates preparing for edTPA.
