Pearson is currently seeking experienced PK-12 educators and Higher Education teacher educators to evaluate edTPA for the 2019 Spring Administration.
Developed for educators by educators, edTPA is the first nationally available performance-based assessment for beginning teachers. It is designed to support teacher candidate learning and provide actionable evidence that supports preparation program renewal. Aligned with college and career readiness standards, InTASC Standards and commonly used teacher evaluation frameworks; edTPA assesses teaching that promotes student learning in diverse contexts. edTPA scorers contribute to the teaching profession by supporting the assessment and an evidence-based process that can make objective, comparable, and valid evaluation of teaching skills and readiness for the classroom.
For more information about edTPA, please visit our website http://scoreedtpa.pearson.com/.
edTPA scoring is done remotely on a temporary/part-time basis in addition to your current educator role. Training and qualification takes approximately 19-24 hours, and is completed at your own pace between January 29th, 2019 and March 8, 2019. Scoring begins after qualification and concludes on June 1, 2019. Portfolio volume varies throughout the season, and depending on the content area.
