Background of the California Teaching Performance Assessment (CalTPA)

The CalTPA is a measure of your knowledge, skills, and competencies as a beginning teacher in relation to the Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs). It is a requirement of all Multiple Subjects and Single Subject teacher candidates who enter programs of teacher preparation in California effective July 1, 2008. The CalTPA is a result of legislation, Senate Bill 2042, which requires a summative assessment of teaching performance in pre-service teacher preparation. The assessment was developed by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing and the Educational Testing Service. It was field tested for validity by K-12 teachers and University education faculty. (CTC, 2007)

The Cal TPA at CSULA

CSULA uses the California Teaching Performance Assessment (CalTPA) to meet the SB 2042 requirement for a program-embedded teaching performance assessment. All candidates must pass each of the 4 Tasks of the CalTPA with a minimum score of 3 on an ascending 4 point scale in order to be recommended for an initial California teaching credential. Candidates are directed to the Candidate Handbook prepared by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for a full description of the CalTPA, each of the 4 Tasks and the scoring rubrics, and the guidelines for completing each Task.
