Requesting a Score Confirmation

edTPA Scoring Process

All edTPA assessments are scored according to standardized procedures by qualified scorers. Scorers include teacher educators and qualified teachers and administrators who are recruited and selected because of their documented experience teaching, supporting beginning teachers and subject-matter knowledge. Each scorer participates in rigorous training to become qualified as an edTPA scorer. The scorers are carefully monitored during scoring activities to maintain high quality and consistency in scoring across portfolios.

Score Confirmation Service

If you believe your score on one or more rubrics was reported in error, you may request a score confirmation. There is a fee for this service. The score confirmation process will take place within 60 calendar days of the receipt of the request. You will be mailed the results of the score confirmation:

  • If the score confirmation process results in a score alteration (either higher or lower than originally reported), you will be issued a corrected Score Profile, the score confirmation fee will be refunded, and your records will be updated.
  • If the original score is confirmed as a result of the score confirmation process, you will be sent a letter indicating that your score has been confirmed, and the score confirmation fee will not be refunded.
  • Please note that only one score confirmation request is permitted per submission and requests received after the initial score confirmation request will not be honored.

Note: Score confirmation can be requested only when a numeric score has been assigned to all rubrics. If your edTPA materials do not meet the edTPA Submission Requirements PDF Document. , your Score Profile will include an associated Condition Code on one or more rubrics. A Condition Code on your Score Profile indicates that the designated rubric(s) are unscorable (because of problems with submitted materials) and therefore not eligible for score confirmation.

Requesting a Score Confirmation

A request for score confirmation must be made in writing and must include:

  • your name
  • your customer number (found in your account)
  • the last five digits of your Social Security number
  • the assessment and associated submission date for which you want your score confirmed
  • Score Confirmation Service payment of $200 made by cashier's check or money order only, payable to Evaluation Systems in U.S. dollars. Write the last five digits of your Social Security number on your cashier's check or money order. Do not send cash.

Your written request and the correct payment must be postmarked within two months (i.e., 60 calendar days) of the score reporting date for the submission for which score confirmation is requested and mailed to:
