edTPA Passes Milestone; Ends Two-Year Field Test

edTPA™ passed a critical milestone this summer when the final assessments were submitted and scored as part of an ambitious two-year edTPA field-test period. Completion of this extensive field testing gives new momentum to edTPA, which is scheduled to be fully operational and available to all states and teacher candidates beginning September 18.

During the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years, more than 12,000 teacher candidates in 26 states participated in the edTPA process. The candidates came from some 250 institutions. Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Tennessee and Washington were among the states with the highest number of teacher candidates participating in the field test.

edTPA developers at the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE) used the field test to refine the assessment to prepare for this fall’s launch. With extensive input from teacher educators from around the country, SCALE revised the handbooks that guide teacher candidates through the process and strengthened scorer and scoring training requirements.


Upcoming Event: 2013 National edTPA Implementation Conference

The National edTPA Implementation Conference will be convened November 1 – 2, 2013 at the University of San Diego. This annual two-day gathering is open to higher education administrators, faculty, supervisors and state education agencies (SEAs) who are seeking to deepen their understanding of edTPA and network within a learning community of edTPA users. Attendees will benefit from attending workshops and discussions that support implementation and emphasize edTPA’s educative elements for candidates and its program renewal potential.

2013-14 handbooks are now available in the Resource Library!

2013-14 handbooks and the updated Making Good Choices candidate support document are now available in the Resource Library!

SCALE has made only a few changes to handbooks for operational use in 2013-14. Informed by our experiences with benchmarking, training and scoring during the validation field test this year, new handbooks include minor changes to directions and prompts. These changes are intended to improve clarity for candidates, faculty and scorers. See the Table of Changes document for details on the changes.
