Teaching Performance Assessment (edTPA)

Educate Yourself

  • You will register for edTPA through Pearson during Directed Teaching.
  • There is a $300 fee for edTPA and it covers all development costs and operational assessment services associated with the resources and support for implementation, delivery, scoring and reporting of edTPA, as well as customer support service for candidates.
  • Scorers are trained specifically to edTPA rubrics - they use standardized scoring procedures and are calibrated and monitored during scoring.
