The College of Education has adopted and implemented a teacher preparation assessment, edTPA. The edTPA is a subject-specific assessment which includes a review of a teacher candidate’s authentic teaching materials that documents and demonstrates the candidate’s ability to effectively teach subject matter to all students. The assessment is completed during the senior II semester for candidates in initial licensure programs.

East Carolina University is seeing results from using edTPA in its teacher preparation, where small groups are teaming up to improve candidate assessment and address content-specific challenges.
East Carolina teacher educators are using edTPA data to identify and shape changes at the program and unit levels.
