The Educational Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) is a performance-based assessment embedded in the pre-service teaching experience. Its successful completion is a State requirement for licensure. This assessment is closely aligned to the National Board Certification Standards, Common Core Standards, IPTS Standards and the Charlotte Danielson Framework.

Teacher candidates need to register with Pearson for edTPA prior to registering for Sequence 8. Registration for Sequence 8 will be permitted once confirmation of registration for the edTPA has been received.
