Faculty Calibration Information Page

As part of our ongoing program improvement work, beginning Fall 2018, faculty who teach in the initial teacher licensure program are asked to review and score an edTPA official work sample. We are starting with faculty who teach edTPA Practice Task courses. At this time, no minimum requirement for scoring has been set; our objective is to create dialogue and mutual understanding among faculty as to edTPA expectations. Scoring a common work product and then discussing those scores with colleagues can assist with this.
