The edTPA is a nationally scored Teacher Performance Assessment designed to evaluate a teacher candidate's planning, instruction, and assessment skills. It was created by educators, for educators. Stanford University faculty and staff at the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE) developed edTPA. It is a process completed during the student teaching semester by the teacher candidate with guidance from the university faculty. This assessment documents and demonstrates each candidate's ability to effectively teach his/her subject matter to all students.

It is intended to be used for teacher licensure and to support state and national program accreditation, and to support program renewal.
