edTPA Teacher Certification Examination Pilot | Texas Education Agency – Texas Education Agency




edTPA is a performance-based, subject-specific assessment and support system used 
to emphasize, measure, and support the skills and knowledge that all educators need to be effective. For edTPA, teacher candidates prepare a portfolio of materials during their clinical or internship experience. Within the portfolio, candidates have the opportunity to demonstrate their effectiveness to support students, engage students in ambitious learning, analyze students’ learning, and adjust their instruction to meet their students’ needs.
Forty of Texas’ educator preparation programs are participating in Year 3 of Texas’ edTPA pilot. Teacher candidates completing clinical teaching or an internship in your school district may be completing an edTPA portfolio, as edTPA is an approved certification exam for standard certification. Aligned to candidates’ certification areas, candidates select one of the subject-specific areas to complete their edTPA portfolio, and, throughout the development of the portfolio, candidates will receive support from their educator preparation program. Further, all pilot edTPA portfolios are double-scored and candidates are encouraged to use the detailed outcome data to inform their continued professional growth.  
Since a critical component of the edTPA relies on candidates submitting videos of their teaching, protecting student privacy is of extreme importance with video recording and the confidentiality and security of all edTPA materials (e.g., student work samples). As such, we wanted to provide some additional background to help address the potential concerns should they arise: 
We appreciate your commitment to ensuring that teachers are well prepared to meet the needs of Texas students and look forward to working with you to learn from this pilot. If you have any questions, please email DeMarco Pitre (
