The UNCP Educator Preparation Program has voted to use edTPA as the performance assessment for teacher interns beginning July 1, 2017.

The edTPA consists of three tasks that are completed during the internship semester:

  • Task 1 - Planning - Plan a learning segment consisting of 3 - 5 lessons around a central topic. Analyze the lessons and reflect upon the planning process.
  • Task 2 - Instruction - Teach and video record two clips from the lessons from the learning segment. Analyze the lesson and reflect upon the teaching process.
  • Task 3 - Assessment - Analyze student performance related to the learning segment. Design and implement a plan for students, including those with special needs.

Detailed information and support for teacher interns will be provided during the internship semester.
