edTPA Assessments

All University of Iowa student teachers who are completing preparation for initial licensure as teachers in Spring 2018 and after will be required to complete edTPA. All Elementary Education student teachers in Fall 2017 will prepare edTPA as a requirement of the student teaching seminar.

In Fall 2017, passing scores on either edTPA or Praxis Subject Assessments will satisfy the program completion testing requirement for University of Iowa student teachers who are completing preparation for initial licensure as teachers.

Fall 2017 student teachers in programs in 5-12 or K-12 programs may wish to seek guidance from program faculty on test selection.
