edTPA 

edTPA is a student teacher performance assessment developed by the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE).  edTPA evaluates candidate readiness in three areas: planning, implementation, and assessment. Candidates learn these knowledge and skills as they progress through program coursework. edTPA serves as the student teaching capstone project and is content-specific.

edTPA passing scores - updated 10-25-16

As of 10/25/16, it is projected that passing edTPA will become a state licensure requirement beginning in AY 2019-20. While edTPA is not currently required for a licensure recommendation at UNC Charlotte, it is required as the capstone project for the student teaching course. Therefore, all candidates enrolled in a student teaching course or completing student teaching for licensure are required to create and submit an edTPA product for official scoring.

What is the passing score for edTPA? At UNC Charlotte, "passing" edTPA is currently defined with the criteria in the table below. Project scores are then converted into a project grade, which is used in calculating the final student teaching course grade. A final student teaching grade of "A" or "B" is required for a licensure recommendation. It is anticipated that beginning in AY 2019-2020, a passing edTPA score will also be required for licensure.
