What is edTPA?
edPTA is a portfolio-based Teacher Performance Assessment that will determine whether a new teacher is ready for the job and can effectively support your child’s learning.
What will change?
Student teachers will perform the same duties as before with the addition of a 15- or 20-minute video of teaching and learning in the classroom.
How will you give permission?
Student teachers will obtain your and your child’s written consent with a release form before recording in the classroom. Here’s a sample of what you’ll receive.
Will the videotapes be safe and confidential?
Procedures are in place to ensure the confidentiality of your child and the security of student teacher video recordings. Pearson and Stanford University have prepared this comprehensive policy to safeguard your child.
