Large-Scale Implementation of the edTPA: Reflections upon Institutional Change in Action
Keywords: assessment, data-driven, organizational change
AbstractThis reflective case study highlights the challenges a teacher preparation unit faces as it develops in a conceptual model of institutional change the key roles, activities, and barriers to overcome in order to transform teacher preparation. For institutions preparing to engage with the edTPA implementation, guidance is offered, including: developing organizational structures to address technology, content, and communications needs; building a foundation for program and faculty readiness; and building assessment models around the edTPA to support program improvement, curriculum alignment, and faculty research. In the current educational climate, teacher preparation programs are challenged to evolve their practice and bring more valid and reliable assessments to teacher education. The national movement behind the edTPA is one example. Yet, the institutional change an edTPA implementation brings to each teacher preparation program is multifaceted and complex.
