Just to be clear Rubrics 16 - 18 will not counted toward the scores this year, right?
Perfect, thank you.
Would we also find out the new cut score in May with the addition of 16-18?
As a rookie, could you clarify what a "cut score" is?
I am hoping for some comment on the language component. My students seem to have the most difficulty with this.
Sorry this doesn’t seem to fit in with the conversation topics, but I have a detail question about rubrics—some, such as rubric 3 for elementary literacy, include “making connections to research and/or theory.” Besides being cited in text, where does a reference list go? At the end of the commentary?
For many of our candidates, one of the struggles is paying the $300 fee to submit the TPA.
How do you motivate candidates to value edTPA as a learning tool rather than see it as merely a hoop through which to jump?
What is the level of feed back that we can give candidates as they are writing the edTPA?
Can the candidates seek feed back or editing from anyone? We assume professors aren't allowed, but can supervisors or mentor teachers?
i've connected the edTPA work with how it prepares them for their interviewing and they seem to appreciate that connection
This is great! Thanks so much everyone.
If you can get that information to me as well, I would appreciate it. :-)
Ok so a question about learning targets…
Is it best to have just one per lesson?
This was a student question
But having 2-3 isn’t counted as confusing or detrimental for EdTPA?
I think it really depends on the content
The LT should definitely be measurable
Yes, so having multiple targets creates a bit more of an assessment burden.
The LTs should scaffold on each other from lesson to lesson
If there's time at the end to touch on this: I've been having trouble navigating the group vs. whole class guidelines, especially when it comes to literacy. Often candidates teach a whole class lesson and then work with a small group to practice the strategy (often CT works with a different group). Would they record the whole class lesson, small group, or both? Collect materials from whole class or group? Both candidates I'm working with who have this question would really prefer reporting on the group.
Thanks. Will slides be available?
