Educational Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA)

edTPA (educational Teacher Performance Assessment) is a national performance- based assessment currently being implemented in 33 States and Washington, D.C. The edTPA was developed by faculty and Staff at Standford University in partnership with the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE). edTPA is modeled after the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards’ assessments of accomplished veteran teachers, but it is designed for candidates seeking initial licensure.
