The edTPA (Teacher Performance Assessment) certification requirements focus on five key dimensions of teaching: planning, instruction, assessment, written commentary about teaching practice, and academic language. As a performance-based assessment, completion of the requirements are embedded in the student-teaching classroom experience (usually in the last semester of a candidate’s program).
The assessments include rigorous written commentary, video submission, and assessments as evidence of teaching skill, but more importantly of student learning.
Each credential (content) area has its own “Handbook” that includes details and guidance about meeting your specific certification requirements. You will have access to your credential area handbook through your edTPA Taskstream account.
