The purpose of the stakeholder sessions will be to elicit feedback from teacher education candidates, faculty and cooperating public school teachers on the process of compiling evidence (both artifacts and commentary) for completing an edTPA portfolio, preparing a portfolio for official scoring and understanding the scoring process. Feedback from these sessions will be shared with the PESB, the Stanford Center on Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE) and the operational team at the Evaluation Systems group of Pearson.
The charge of the group is to:
1. Examine the process of preparing, submitting and receiving scores for edTPA and access to customer service.
2. Discuss challenges and obstacles to preparing and submitting portfolios and brainstorm solutions to overcome them.
PESB Strategic Plan Goals related to the edTPA Stakeholder sessions:
Goal 1 - Ensure that educator preparation programs supply highly effective educators that meet the needs of Washington’s students; AND
Goal 2 - Collaboratively establish policy and system supports for quality educator development along the career continuum.
