Scorers

  • If you are interested in becoming a scorer for edTPA, check the edTPA Scorer website for qualification requirements and next steps.
  • edTPA scorers include teacher educators from the programs participating in edTPA, as well as other qualified teacher education faculty, clinical supervisors of student teachers, K-12 teachers, administrators, and National Board Certified Teachers.

    All scorers are recruited and selected because of their documented experience both with beginning teachers and subject-matter content. Their efforts help to support the assessment and an evidence-based process that can make objective, comparable, and valid evaluation of teaching skills and readiness for the classroom. The criteria for selecting and training scorers are rigorous. Details can be found in the edTPA Scorer Requirements. These educators are also carefully monitored during scoring activities to maintain high quality.

    edTPA scorers are compensated for their effort to improve the performance and preparation of incoming teachers. They are paid for training as well as for each assessment scored.
