2018–2019 Elementary Education Options

The 2018–19 national handbooks, templates, and support resources (URLPs, Making Good Choices, and academic language handouts) for all subject areas are available for download in the Pearson ePortfolio Platform and other integrated platform providers.

Renamed Elementary Education Handbook

The 2018–2019 Elementary Education handbook (Tasks 1–3 in Elementary Literacy and Task 4 in Elementary Mathematics) has been renamed Elementary Education: Literacy with Mathematics Task 4. The re-titled Elementary Education: Literacy with Mathematics Task 4 handbook, resources, and template are available for download from the Pearson ePortfolio platform and integrated platform providers. No content changes are being made to the re-titled handbook or support resources. Therefore, either the 2017–2018 Elementary Education or the 2018–2019 Elementary Education: Literacy with Mathematics Task 4 templates may be used for fall 2018 scoring purposes. Portfolio submissions will not receive condition codes for utilizing the 2017–2018 Elementary Education templates.

New Handbook: Elementary Education: Mathematics with Literacy Task 4

SCALE has developed an additional Elementary Education handbook designed to assess preservice performance in Elementary Mathematics (Tasks 1–3) and Elementary Literacy (Task 4). The new Elementary Education: Mathematics with Literacy Task 4 handbook is available for candidate registration and submission. This new handbook is designed to be a reverse version of the content presented in the current Elementary Education handbook and was developed based on requests from programs.

Note that some states are in the process of determining whether they will accept the new Elementary Education: Mathematics with Literacy Task 4 handbook. As those states determine their handbook acceptance policy, the handbook listing and requirements and assessment options for the state are being updated. Candidates are encouraged to review the requirements and assessment options for their state prior to registration. If you have questions concerning which handbook is appropriate, please contact the state office of educator licensing for specific details.

Please note the new Elementary Education: Mathematics with Literacy Task 4 handbook and templates do not conform with the current Elementary Education handbook, as they contain different content. Candidates will be unable to utilize the current Elementary Education handbook and templates when preparing to participate in the new Elementary Education: Mathematics with Literacy Task 4 handbook.
