Implementing edTPA at WP

The College of Education (COE) of William Paterson University is in the process of implementing all of the changes required of teacher preparation institutions, including the new performance assessment, edTPA.  The COE has adopted all of the new requirements from the NJ DOE administrative code for licensure, including the new performance assessment, edTPA.

The NJ DOE notified all districts through a broadcast memo of September 13, 2016 that, “The edTPA is an assessment completed during the clinical component of a teacher preparation program (e.g., student teaching) and measures a teaching candidate’s ability to plan and deliver a lesson, evaluate student learning, and reflect on his or her practice….”All William Paterson University clinical interns (student teachers) will be completing the edTPA assessment

The following webpages are intended to share information about edTPA; the roles of teacher candidates, clinical educators and clinical supervisors; video recording protocols and security; and support resources.
