Changes in edTPA requirements announced by the NYSED Board of Regents on April 29, 2014



Changes in edTPA requirements announced by the NYSED Board of Regents on April 29, 2014:

  1. A teacher candidate who is seeking initial certification on or after May 1, 2014 and prior to June 30, 2015, will be required to submit the edTPA.
  2. If a teacher candidate submits the edTPA and receives a failing score, he/she may take the Assessment of Teaching Skills-Written (ATS-W) exam. The teacher candidate must:1) use a passing score on an ATS-W taken on or before April 30, 2014 (before the new certification examination requirements became effective), or 2) use a passing score on an ATS-W taken after receipt of a failing numeric score on the edTPA and prior to June 30, 2015.

Note: The ATS-W is not required for teacher candidates who achieve a passing score on the edTPA.
