edTPA is a performance assessment to help determine if new teachers are ready to enter the profession with the skills necessary to help all of their students learn. This process doesn't ask you to do anything that most have not already done in your education courses but does ask that you demonstrate what you have learned through the application of teaching strategies that promote student learning.


By focusing on the act of teaching, edTPA complements existing entry-level assessments that focus on basic skills or subject-matter knowledge. The edTPA is comparable to entry-level licensing exams that demand applications of skills in other professions, such as the medical licensing exams, the architecture exam, or the bar exam in law. Benefits for you:


Development of confidence and skills you need to be successful in diverse settings Provide a uniform and evidence-based process that can be used to confirm that you demonstrate readiness for the classroom Measures your ability to differentiate instruction for diverse learners Prepare you to be successful in the actual classroom environment Provide extra support from faculty and staff during the student teaching experience
