FALL 2018 edTPA HANDBOOK & TEMPLATE RELEASE

Overall, there will be no changes to national edTPA handbook content for all subject areas in fall 2018. There are also virtually no changes to Making Good Choices, Understanding Rubric Level Progressions (URLPs), and academic language handout content. The handbooks and templates, along with those key resources, are getting minor formatting updates to ensure that they are accessibility-friendly and have updated copyright/version labeling. Accessible versions of the national handbooks, templates and support resources (except for ELE) will be posted in the AACTE Resource Library in May 2018. All materials for all fields will be available for candidates to use for submissions beginning in September 2018. We encourage you to check the errata, which are updated on a regular basis, to see a list of any minor subject-specific corrections and clarifications. The errata include a versions chart, which you can compare to the version number on the cover of the handbooks to ensure you are using the latest ones.

Washington handbooks: All national revisions described above will be made for corresponding Washington handbooks and templates. Whether or not there will be revisions to the Student Voice prompts and rubrics will not be known until after the May PESB meeting May 17-18, when the Board will review available aggregated data from candidates who responded to the revised prompts. A standard-setting panel will be convened in July to examine a more complete set of data and to recommend a passing standard in light of Student Voice rubrics becoming consequential. The Board will consider the recommendation at its July 24 meeting.
