edTPA

Overview 

edTPA is an external scored, program-specific assessment measuring teaching behaviors that focus on student learning. The Winthrop Educator Preparation Program uses the edTPA combined with the Internship II evaluation to meet the SC Teaching Standards 4.0. 

Implementation  

edTPA emphasizes effective teaching and reflective practice, thus many of the components and strategies are integrated into earlier program and Education Core courses. During the semester in which candidates complete the actual edTPA assessment (typically Internship II), implementation is guided from a unit level starting with a “Boot Camp” for candidates. This is followed by full-day seminars during which candidates are released from their Internship (dates for full-release are distributed by the edTPA coordinator).

Resources 

Various internal and external sites are available to support edTPA implementation:
