Who’s Preparing our Candidates? edTPA, Localized Knowledge and the Outsourcing of Teacher Evaluation


by Alison G. Dover, Brian D. Schultz, Katy Smith & Timothy J. Duggan — March 30, 2015

This essay examines the impact of outsourcing teacher preparation and evaluation through high stakes teacher performance assessments like edTPA. In addition to undermining teacher preparation by marginalizing the local experts best situated to evaluate candidates’ performance, this has led to a growing industry of edTPA-related services. The authors use their own experiences with edTPA “coaching” and scoring to illustrate the inevitable consequences of shifting teacher preparation and evaluation to the private sector.
