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 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.
