Task Three: Assessment

The EdTPA Tasks and the Cycle of Effective Teaching

The three edTPA tasks represent a cycle of effective teaching (i.e., teaching that is focused on student learning). Planning Task 1 documents your intended teaching, Instruction Task 2 documents your enacted teaching, and Assessment Task 3 documents that impact of your teaching on student learning.

Assessment consists of analysis of student learning, providing feedback, and supporting student use of feedback.  You will choose ONE assessment from your learning segment to analyze closely in a written commentary, provide samples of student work, and evidence of feedback for three focus students.

Keep in mind, Tasks 2 and 3 should essentially be taking place at the same time because you are gathering artifacts for both (video clips for 2 and student work samples of one assessment for 3) at the same time.
