What's the difference between the two edTPA courses offered by Relay (TC: Planning for edTPA vs. TC: Curating the edTPA)?
TC: Planning for the edTPA will orient you to the edTPA handbook for your certification area and guide you through the creation and procurement of the raw materials you'll need to curate your edTPA assessment. TC: Curating the edTPA will guide you through the process of curating your edTPA submission resulting in a complete submission ready to submit to Pearson for scoring. By taking this course you'll have designated work time to draft Task 1 (i.e., Planning), learn writing tips to aid you in the written components, get peer feedback, and have a cohort of other teachers who are engaging in the reflective experience.
Does edTPA transfer to other states? For example, I'm moving to California in the fall to teach. They require that teachers complete the edTPA to teach there. If I take the edTPA in New York, will it transfer to California?
State requirements and assessment options vary slightly by state, but the majority of states (~40) use edTPA as a measure of evaluating new teacher readiness. Please contact the state office of educator licensing for specific details about which edTPA is appropriate for the state in which you are seeking licensure.
New York Candidates Only
I'm a single-subject secondary teacher (i.e., grades 6-8 science), but my certification pathway is Middle Childhood Generalist (5-9). Which edTPA should I complete?
Per New York state requirements, you must complete either the Elementary Education: Literacy with Mathematics Task 4 or Elementary Education: Mathematics with Literacy Task 4 edTPA.
