Teacher Performance Assessment
Updated Certification Information: As of January 2014, State regulations will require that all Washington State teacher candidates take and pass the Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) in addition to meeting specific program requirements to be recommended for certification. The fee for the test will be approximately $300. Candidates at Evergreen will prepare and submit their portfolios for the edTPA in their first student teaching placement. Those who do not pass will have a second opportunity to pass the edTPA in their second student teaching placement. Candidates will incur additional retesting fees if a second attempt is necessary. We anticipate that more information about cost and processes will be available in August 2013 from Pearson, the testing company.
