A feature article in The New York Times offered an in-depth look at the purpose, goals and design elements of edTPA. In the piece, edTPA officials and participants discuss the initiative’s progress and the impact it stands to have on the educator preparation profession.
New Name for the TPA: As we approach the release of the TPA Operational Handbooks and continued use of the TPA this Fall, we want you to be the first to know that the TPA now has a new, official name – edTPA. This new name will keep at the forefront the educative nature of the assessment and its role in supporting candidate learning and program renewal.
edTPA participants were able to attend a set of two recent webinars: the Beyond the Field Test: edTPA Usage Plan for 2012-2013 webinar, held on June 27th, and the Lessons Learned from the TPAC Field Test webinar, held on July 12th. We are pleased to be able to offer archives of these webinars in edTPA’s Resource Library.
