2020–21 edTPA Handbooks

Candidates are able to access the 2020–21 handbooks and templates in the Pearson ePortfolio system or other integrated platform provider systems.

Handbook and Template Changes

There are only minor changes to address previously identified and published errata for the assessment templates. There are no other generic changes to the assessment materials for this year.

Which Materials Should I Use?

In general, candidates should use the assessment materials that are currently available in their edTPA portfolio system (provided by the program, edTPA.com, or their ePortfolio platform provider).

  • Candidates who have already made significant progress building their edTPA portfolios with the previous year's templates may continue to use and submit that version.
  • Starting in September 2020, candidates building their edTPA portfolios for 2020–21 submission must use the assessment materials for their subject area. Candidates are advised to review the list of handbook and template changes for 2020–21, which is available online where handbooks are posted.
