In order to provide edTPA users with updated resources and materials in one central location, AACTE and SCALE have launched a new membership driven website with varied access associated with the edTPA Usage Plan. The home page will continue to provide a variety of publicly available information about edTPA including background on edTPA development, FAQs and policies.
All current edTPA coordinators and members of TPAC Online will be messaged with easy directions for accessing the new site through a membership login. edTPA members at the introductory, exploratory, scaling up, and implementation levels will be able to use edTPA’s Online Community forum to collaborate, share ideas and resources, problem-solve issues in support of implementation, and ask questions of staff and peers. In addition, members will have access to edTPA’s Resource Library for handbooks, support webinars, research articles and additional resources developed by the profession for the profession to support educative implementation.
