Sb 2042 tpa requirements

SB 2042 TPA Requirements

  • PerformanceAssessment(mandated by SB 1209)

    • Aligned with CSTP and TPEs

    • Embedded within teacher prep program

    • Provides information for formative feedback and as a summative measure

    • The TPA is one of many requirements a candidate must meet in order to recommended for a credential


Performance assessment

Performance Assessment

Is a form of testing that requires an individual to demonstrate the ability to perform specific tasks.

Individuals develop their approaches to the task under specified conditions, knowing that their work will be evaluated according to defined standards.


Teaching performance assessment

Teaching Performance Assessment

Is an assessment that requires candidates to demonstrate through their performance with K-12 students that they have mastered the knowledge, skills and abilities required of a beginning teacher, as exemplified in the Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs).


T eaching p erformance e xpectations

Teaching Performance Expectations

A TPE is a statement describing an integrated set of knowledge, skills, and abilities that is significantly related to the job of a teacher, and that Preliminary Teaching Credential candidates in California should know and be able to do.

The caltpa

The CalTPA

  • Measures salient features of the Teaching Performance Expectations

  • Provides formative feedback as well as summative measurement of teaching performance

  • Embedded in teacher preparation experience


Who takes the tpa

Who Takes the TPA?

All candidates who start a Commission-approved multiple and single subject teacher preparation program as of July 1, 2008 must meet the teaching performance assessment requirement.

California Teaching Performance Assessment

The Tasks:

An Overview


Caltpa task characteristics

CalTPA Task Characteristics

  • Distinct tasks measure the TPEs in multiple ways

  • Tasks develop in complexity

  • Explicit task prompts

    • Within a task, prompts are organized into steps to scaffold responses from a candidate that are connected and build upon each other

  • Specifications for focus students


The four caltpa tasks

The Four CalTPA Tasks

  • Subject-Specific Pedagogy

  • Designing Instruction

  • Assessing Learning

  • Culminating Teaching Experience


Designing instruction

Designing Instruction

This task requires the candidate to make appropriate connections between what the teacher knows about the students in his/her class and instructional planning for those students–whole class and two focus students.

This written task contains a five-step set of prompts that focuses the candidate on first identifying and then applying the connections between their students' characteristics and learning needs and the teacher’s instructional planning, with adaptations for the focus students (EL and student with a different learning challenge).

Designing Instruction

Connecting Instructional Planning to Student Characteristics for Academic Learning

The candidate response provides evidence that demonstrates the teacher candidate’s ability to select a developmentally appropriate lesson based on state-adopted academic content standards for students, learn about students, plan for instruction, make adaptations to the plan to meet student needs, and reflect on the instructional planning.


Caltpa passing score

CalTPA Passing Score

  • Teacher candidates must achieve a minimum score of 3 or 4 across each of the four tasks of the CalTPA.


Tpa remediation

TPA Remediation

  • Tasks receiving a score level 1 or 2 must be remediated and resubmitted.

  • The remediation process consists of meeting with designated instructors to develop a written remediation plan, making the appropriate revisions to the task, and resubmitting the task with the appropriate rescoring fee.

  • It is recommended that this process take place as soon s possible after the initial submission.


Caltpa assessor

CalTPA Assessor

The role of an assessor for the CalTPA is to conduct a fair and equitable assessment of each teacher candidate’s performance.

To eliminate bias, assessors use professional judgmentin conjunction with a standardized scoring protocol on which they have been calibrated annually.
