EdTPA - Teacher Performance Assessment

EdTPA is a nationally available performance assessment of readiness to teach. The portfolio assessment is designed with a focus on student learning and principles from research and theory. As a performance-based assessment, edTPA is designed to engage teacher candidates in demonstrating their understanding of teaching and student learning in authentic ways. Candidates will be required to complete tasks and commentaries within a portfolio relevant to their program as evidence of planned and implemented instruction.

Candidates who apply for their first Initial Certificate on or after May 1, 2014—including candidates who will graduate from an approved teacher preparation program on or after May 1, 2014—should not take the LAST or the ATS‑W.  These candidates will be required to pass the new edTPA, EAS, and ALST assessments instead.
