edTPA resources

email sent to edTPA coordinators on January 17, 2014
Dear edTPA Coordinators,
Happy New Year! To help you better utilize edTPA resources at your institutions this year, we have created several "How-To" videos on the resources available at Please feel free to share these videos with your faculty and take a quick look yourself to be sure you have full access to the resources you may need.
Additionally, we have created a new membership category, edTPA Consultant. Previously, institutions could enroll only individuals with matching institutional emails on their edTPA rosters. As edTPA Coordinator, you may now use this category to extend your institution's edTPA membership roster to include individuals who work with edTPA on behalf of your program or organization, but do not have an institutional email address; for example, adjunct faculty, cooperating teachers or other K-12 partners. These edTPA consultant members will be linked to your institution's membership. To learn more, including how to enroll a consultant member or your faculty, please watch the Using the edTPA Account Manager video.
Thank you for your support of edTPA. If you have any questions about the content of this email, please contact

Secondary Science handbooks and templates

email sent from SCALE to edTPA coordinators on 10/3/13

Dear edTPA Coordinators,

The Secondary Science handbooks and templates – both National and Washington State - have been republished in the AACTE Resource Library, on the Pearson ePortfolio platform, and on the platforms of the edTPA integrated Platform Providers.

The new version of the Secondary Science handbooks and templates is Version 3, and the date on the title pages is October 2013.

The Version 3 Secondary Science handbooks (National and Washington State) contain the following updates from Version 2. They are also listed in the Errata Sheet published October 1, 2013.

Version 3

The second row of Rubric 7 is missing and should read:

  • Level 1: There is little or no evidence that the candidate links students' prior academic learning or personal, cultural, or community assets with new learning.
    Links cause student confusion
  • Level 2: Candidate makes vague or superficial links between prior academic learning and new learning.
  • Level 3: Candidate links prior academic learning to new learning.
  • Level 4: Candidate links both prior academic learning and personal, cultural, or community assets to new learning.
  • Level 5: Candidate prompts students to link prior academic learning and personal, cultural, or community assets to new learning.

The guiding question for Rubric 11 should read: How does the candidate analyze evidence of student learning with respect to standards/objectives?

  • Level 3 of Rubric 15 is missing the following text: Next steps are loosely connected with research and/or theory.
  • Level 4 of Rubric 15 is incorrect and should read: Next steps are connected with research and/or theory.
  • The bullet points in Level 5 of Rubric 15 are incorrect and should read:
    • conceptual understanding,
    • use of scientific practices during inquiry, AND
    • evidence-based argument about a scientific phenomenon.

If you have any questions about these changes please contact

email sent to all edTPA coordinators from Pearson, Thursday. 9/19/13

Dear edTPA coordinators,

As the edTPA coordinator, your role is to approve access requests from individuals at your institution. We would like to remind you that the website and the password-protected materials in the Resource Library and the Online Community are designed to support faculty engagement with edTPA and to support their implementation efforts with candidates, cooperating teachers, and other stakeholders. Only faculty will have direct access to these materials from the website. Please do not provide access to the website to candidates who are completing edTPA.

If your state or campus will be requiring candidates to submit portfolios for official scoring, note that there are additional materials at the website, specifically designed for candidates. This site contains additional candidate support materials and information about edTPA registration, submission and scoring timelines. In addition, this site contains contact information for candidates seeking technical assistance. There are also a few materials to support faculty feedback to candidates and for program support.

We appreciate your efforts to support candidates and faculty at your institution with edTPA. If you have any questions about the content of this email please contact

Thank you for your support of edTPA.
