edTPA Assessments

Student teachers in Spring, 2018 and later semesters must pass the edTPA assessment of their program as a requirement for program completion.

For student teachers in the Fall 2016, Spring 2017, and Fall 2017 semesters, edTPA may be an option. Student teachers in the Fall 2016, Spring 2017, and Fall 2017 semesters who pass edTPA may use it to satisfy the program completion testing requirement and are not required to take Praxis Subject Assessments. Students should contact their advisor, program faculty, and/or Office of Student Field Experiences staff to learn if edTPA is an option for them.
