edTPA Assessors Needed - Grades PK - 12

25 Aug 2017 9:20 AM | Gauri Vashist

Pearson is currently seeking experienced PK-12 educators and teacher educators to evaluate edTPA for the 2018 Spring Administration. Developed for educators by educators, edTPA is the first nationally available performance-based assessment for beginning teachers. It is designed to support teacher candidate learning and provide actionable evidence that supports preparation program renewal. Aligned with college and career readiness standards, InTASC Standards and commonly used teacher evaluation frameworks, edTPA assesses teaching that promotes student learning in diverse contexts.

We are seeking experienced PK-12 educators and teacher educators in the following subject areas:

  • ·         Agricultural Education (6-8,9-12)
  • ·         Business and Marketing (6-8,9-12)
  • ·         Classical Languages - Greek & Latin (4-5,6-8,9-12)
  • ·         Elementary Education - Literacy and Mathematics (K-5,6-8)
  • ·         Elementary Literacy (K-5,6-8), Bilingual Spanish
  • ·         Elementary Mathematics (K-5,6-8)
  • ·         Family and Consumer Sciences (6-8,9-12)
  • ·         Health Education (K-6,7-12)
  • ·         Performing Arts (K-6,7-12)
  • ·         Physical Education (K-6,7-12)
  • ·         Secondary History/Social Studies (6-8,9-12)
  • ·         Secondary Mathematics (6-8,9-12)
  • ·         Technology and Engineering Education (K-6,7-12)
  • ·         Visual Art (K-6,7-12)
  • ·         World Languages (K-12)

The subject-specific nature of the Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) requires that all trainers and scorers possess both strong pedagogical content-specific knowledge and experience in roles that support teaching and learning in the edTPA field in which they are scoring. In addition, scorers should have experience and knowledge related to the grade spans of the portfolios they score. For example, a scorer familiar with the mathematics learning of young children would be well suited to scoring portfolios developed in an elementary school context, but may not be knowledgeable enough about secondary mathematics to score portfolios developed by high school teachers. 

Below are the qualifications for becoming an edTPA Scorer. Please review these and fill out the application at scoreedtpa.pearson.com if interested. This opportunity offers flexible timings and is a remote position. If you have previously applied for, or have scored edTPA, we would be appreciative if you could pass this information along to any colleagues who may be interested.
