What is TPA?


SCALE teaching performance assessments

(TPAs) have several features distinguishing

them from other pre-service teaching


and what is the tpa
And what is the TPA?
  • TPA, Teacher Performance Assessment, is a nationally supported summative portfolio, supported by Stanford University, AACTE, and Pearson.
  • Our goal is to move more programs into the TPA in coming semesters.
    • Why?
      • The TPA is a valid and reliable instrument that provides a common language for program improvement which will lead to improve student learning outcomes and better beginning teachers.
      • We need stronger teacher assessment throughout our programs to ensure that high quality beginning teachers graduate from our programs.

The TPA assessment replaces the senior portfolio. The senior portfolio consisted of four key requirements: Component A: Instructional Practice Candidate Work Sample; Component B: Classroom Management; Component C: Impact on Student Learning; and Component D: Technology Skills.
