edTPA

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.
