When the results for the dependent variables were considered separately, four of the five variables considered separately reached statistical significance after a Bonferroni adjustment was performed and the adjusted alpha level was determined to be .01.

Stages of Concern Affinity Activity Reflect on preparing and supporting candidates when implementing the edTPA Write your concerns on sticky notes — one detail on each sticky note. (If you have 10 concerns, you should have 10 sticky notes.) Don’t worry about writing in complete sentences. Place your sticky notes on the chart paper quickly without talking with other group members. Don’t worry about where you put them on the paper. The idea is to remember and write as many concerns as you can. Working in your group, start organizing sticky notes that seem to be about the same thing. Look for ideas that have something in common, and put those ideas/sticky notes together in groups. Do not talk during this step. Now talk with your group about category titles for each cluster of sticky notes on your chart. Answer or ask questions about why certain details are on the chart or why they were grouped a certain way. Once your group has decided on titles or headings for each group of sticky notes, write these on the chart at the top of each group. Share out with the larger group.
What to Consider Generation 1: Do candidates, faculty, and clinical teachers understand the assessment? Generation 2: Do candidates participate in formative coursework in preparation for the assessment? Do faculty understand how the formative components build? Generation 3: Is this high stakes for candidates? Are interns receiving the same message and support?
Stages of Concern: Take-Away BINGO Create a 4x3 chart on a sheet of paper. In each cell, write one of your group’s concern categories. Add your own concern categories following the generation discussion. As we work through the tasks and rubrics, listen for support strategies associated with your concerns. Place a heart on that concern when you hear a strategy.
Challenges and Successes in Implementation
Candidate Relevance Prioritizing the edTPA Unrelated to past coursework Viewed it as a hoop to jump through
Candidate Relevance Connected to prior coursework and best practices for effective teacher edTPA work day Full day trainings Developing a common language regarding planning, instruction, assessment ¡ CT, US, IC PODs ELEM 4325-seminar Recommended edTPA work schedule
Faculty Buy-in Providing options for fitting the edTPA within existing coursework/ internship Academic Freedom
Faculty Buy-in Start anew. Don’t try to fit edTPA into existing requirements. ¡ edTPA due date before ALL DAYS Over time, small groups taking ownership of pieces of the pie Faculty serve as US ¡ Faculty see growth in interns as they plan, teach, assess ¡ • Shared language surrounding candidate performance • Drilling down into data
Understanding edTPA Content Literacy strategy Requisite Skills Academic Language ¡ All stakeholders working under different definitions Re-engagement Whole group and small group
Understanding edTPA Content Increasing conversations Across programs and within ¡ Course Alike Meetings: Across levels ¡ Curriculum Summits Providing time and space for the conversations Group norming ¡ Co-teaching of courses ¡ Recommended edTPA work schedule Making Good Choices Central Focus handout is extremely helpful.
Appropriate Guidelines for Support Lawn mowing/safety netting ¡ Creates issues in selfefficacy and resiliency Fidelity of results ¡ Progress reports, dispositions, other reporting forms Validity/reliability of data for program improvement
Appropriate Guidelines for Support Leveled the playing field: growing the candidate’s potential-some need more time Consistent message with one voice ¡ PODs ¡ Tenured/tenure track faculty assuming responsibility for edTPA instruction in summative performance (Sn 2 Seminar) ¡ Regular communication/ discussions Recommended Schedule for edTPA completion
Local Evaluation Fidelity in scoring Training Need for large numbers of scorers Electronic platform Scoring Schedule
Local Evaluation Group norming ¡ Rubber hits the road regarding program data ¡ Builds program coherence and consistency Assigning evaluation managers ¡ Data analysis Retake process Data Summit
