What is the edTPA?
The Education Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) is a standards-based measurement of pedagogy knowledge, efficacy of instruction and skills in the field. The edTPA is required for instruction in Washington State. Administered during a candidate's field experience, the edTPA requires the assembly of a portfolio including written documents, video clips of classroom instruction, samples of P-12 student work and personal reflections on the field experience. The portfolio is submitted to and scored by Pearson.
Support will be provided to candidates throughout their field experience and labs will provide the opportunity to develop the portfolio for review by Pearson.
