Information regarding edTPA support
The requirements and assessments for teacher certification in New York State are changing.
Starting in May 1, 2014, all teacher certification candidates will need to complete the edTPA, a performance-based assessment designed to review a teacher candidate’s ability to effectively teach his or her subject matter to all students. This new assessment is supported by authentic teaching materials, such as videos, lesson plans, reflections, and student work. In addition to the the edTPA, New York State has revised all teacher certification exams, and depending on your graduation date and eligibility, you may need to take additional exams.
The School of Education is working hard to prepare to our community for this new assessment and to support our students throughout the process. More information is available here.
