The Dangerous Message Teacher Candidates Infer: “If the edTPA Does Not Assess It, I Don’t Have to Do It”

by Elizabeth Soslau, Stephanie Kotch-Jester & Ann Jorlin
As the edTPA quickly becomes the gold standard of teacher performance assessments, the field needs to reflect on what sense our candidates are making of the measure. In this commentary we share our candidates’ conclusions about what the edTPA measures well and less well, and the dangerous inferences they draw from these conclusions. Our aim is to alert teacher preparation programs that teacher candidates view the high stakes performance assessment as an exhaustive checklist of competencies, rather than one of many measures that assess different clusters of teaching skills. The field must counteract this erroneous conclusion and help candidates understand that there are critical competencies that fall outside the scope of the edTPA, which must be developed before being ready to practice.
