Retake Guidelines: This document outlines procedures for working with teacher candidates who don't successfully pass the edTPA.  edTPA Re-take Guidelines

Recommended edTPA Pass Rates: This summary report was released today outlining the findings of the edTPA field-test results. The cut score range is between 37-42. 2013-edTPA Field Test Report.

New date for edTPA being a condition of licensure:

From the most recent TEPDL interim report: "The edTPA will be implemented beginning in the 2015-2016 year.  During the 2015-2016 year, candidates will submit an edTPA portfolio for official scoring.  During this year, the score results will be utilized by programs as program approval data and will not be used for initial licensure decisions.  This will serve as a baseline year."

edTPA handbook selection for WI [link]

The edTPA workgroup recommended and the state superintendent approved the following list of allowable handbook choices.  When multiple handbooks are allowed for a single license, the Educator Preparation Program, not the candidate will be able to select from the allowable list of Wisconsin choices.  Please note this is not the final list, and that this information comes from the TEPDL interim report; and more choices are expected to be available later.

Key policy decisions

The edTPA workgroup addressed key policy questions and made recommendations to the state superintendent.  The state superintendent has accepted all of the following recommendations.

  • If a student is completing a major and a minor, the EPP has the ability to choose the handbook based on placement (only a single edTPA is necessary), and that will satisfy the requirement for both licensure areas.
  • If a student is completing two majors, the EPP has the ability to choose the handbook based on placement (only a single edTPA is necessary), and that will satisfy the requirement for both licensure areas.  The program may endorse for both licensure areas by completing one edTPA.
  • For a returning student, a candidate who has completed an edTPA in one license area is not required to complete an edTPA in a new license area.
  • For a returning educator completing a license who has not previously done an edTPA, it will be the program's decision for that student to complete the edTPA or the traditional exit portfolio.
  • Wisconsin is still seeking information about whether to require/allow out of state students to complete the edTPA.

Yeah, there is a lot to think about and plan for with successfully rolling out the edTPA, but one place I don't think we've really talked about yet is, "What happens when the scores come back?"

Right now the model seems to be that all…
