An Unholy Alliance: One University’s Effort to Fully Embrace edTPA
Currently 626 teacher prep programs, across 47 states (AACTE, 2015), require teacher candidates complete and pass the edTPA, a performance-based assessment of teacher candidate quality and effectiveness in order to receive licensure. Since its inception, special education teacher candidates have consistently scored lower overall than all other comparable disciplines.
