The edTPA is an Illinois teaching licensure requirement for all teacher
candidates who graduate after September 1, 2015. As part of the edTPA, the
teacher candidate must video his/her teaching performance and the impact
this instruction has on student learning. Studentsí images and their voices
must be recorded and student work samples scanned as evidence that learning
occurred. The handling and use of the recordings and the student work
samples must be done in such a manner that students and their work remain
confidential throughout the process.
Following are your responsibilities in this process:
I will use any student work samples, any audio recordings and/or any video
recordings for the sole purpose of the preparation and submission for the
edTPA assessment as directed by my instructors at SIUE. I will not use these
work samples or recordings for any other purpose.
I will do whatever is reasonable to protect the confidentially of any
student work samples, and audio recordings and/or any video recordings of
the students that I collect as part of my field experience or student
teaching experience. I will only use first names of the students and will
avoid using the name of the school and/or district when identifying student
work samples or making recordings.
I understand that any scanned student work samples, any audio recordings and
any video recordings will ONLY be uploaded to secure servers at SIUE for the
purpose of evaluating my teaching knowledge, skills, and dispositions. Also,
I will promptly delete any and all of these student work sample images,
audio recordings, and/or video recordings from any devices other than the
secure servers at SIUE; this deletion will occur absolutely no later than 24
hours after the end of the semester in which the images or recordings were
