2017 edTPA® Annual Administrative Report

The Educative Assessment and Meaningful Support: 2017 edTPA Administrative Report is now publicly available. The report describes edTPA’s continued expansion and support as the first nationally available performance-based assessment and support system for entry level educators. Of the 39,566 15-rubric handbook portfolios scored, 86% were submitted in states where edTPA is required for initial educator licensure, certification, or program completion/program approval. 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.

edTPA has been used operationally to assess teacher candidates since fall 2013 and is now used in 41 states. Membership in the edTPA online community, first launched in 2011, has grown to about 10,300 faculty from more than 790 educator preparation programs. The extensive support infrastructure available to edTPA members includes more than 175 resources that have been downloaded more than 1.3 million times.
