Reflections on an edTPA Experience: A Disappointing, Anticlimactic Conclusion

Proulx, Amy

Implemented as a high-stakes Teacher Performance Assessment, in my opinion, edTPA holds great promise for evaluating novice teachers’ readiness. However, in its current stage, this pre-service assessment is better in theory than practice. I do not want this paper to evolve into a ranting diatribe against edTPA, rather, I hope my insight will shed some light on how we can collectively move forward with sound strategies that best support our teachers and students in the field we all love: education.
