Is the EdTPA the Right Choice for Evaluating Teacher Readiness?
Parkes, Kelly A.; Powell, Sean R.
Arts Education Policy Review, v116 n2 p103-113 2015
The purpose of this article is to describe and analyze the edTPA, a performance assessment created by the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE) and administered by Pearson, Inc., to assess the professional readiness of student teachers. We challenge claims made in support of using this assessment, specifically within the context of arts teacher preparation programs, and we address areas of immediate critical concern to make alternative recommendations.
