The edTPA is a performance-based assessment developed by the faculty and staff at Stanford University’s Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE). The edTPA evaluates the candidate’s ability to plan, instruct and assess in a real world setting.
OTE staff and master clinicians are the liaisons between teacher candidates and mentor teachers participating in the student teacher and residency experiences. We are here to assist teacher candidates as they navigate through the requirements and responsibilities of the clinical experiences and the edTPA. We provide consistent and responsive feedback to students and our support partners.
