edTPA

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. Students’ 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 made.
 

7. By submitting this application, I give consent for SIUE to share any educational records, background check information, drug screening information, and edTPA information with school partners.
