- What is the deadline for submitting my portfolio?
Candidates complete the assessment based on due dates established by their preparation program or licensure requirement. Check with your institution's edTPA Coordinator or your faculty advisor for information on specific submission deadlines. You can review submission and reporting dates here.
Be sure to allow yourself adequate time before your planned submission date to upload and review your files in the Pearson system and to complete the submission process for scoring.
- I don't have one of the required documents or video files. Can I still submit my portfolio for scoring?
No. In order to submit your portfolio, you must include the specified number, type, and content of files. The system will not allow you to submit for scoring until you have uploaded the required amount of files. Additionally, you will want to confirm that you have met all of the submission requirements prior to submitting for scoring.
- I submitted my edTPA for scoring but realized one of my documents was incorrect/I forgot a document/I need to submit my portfolio for feedback. How can I do this?
The "Final Submission Agreement" screen during the submission of an edTPA portfolio states, "If you have participated in the formative feedback process with faculty reviewers, your faculty reviewers will no longer be able to send feedback through the Message Center."
Additionally, in order to submit your edTPA portfolio materials for scoring, you must acknowledge the following statement: "I understand that by submitting my portfolio to Pearson, my submission is final and I will no longer have access to my files through the Pearson ePortfolio system for any edits or reviews."
As stated, once your materials have been submitted for scoring, you will be unable to make any revisions, replace any files, or request feedback on your files through the Pearson ePortfolio system.
Before submitting, be sure to verify that your portfolio meets the submission requirements.
- Will I be able to view my files after I submit them for scoring?
No. Candidates will not be able to access their files in the Pearson ePortfolio system after submitting them for scoring.
When submitting your portfolio for scoring, you must acknowledge the following statement: "I understand that by submitting my portfolio to Pearson, my submission is final and I will no longer have access to my files through the Pearson ePortfolio system for any edits or reviews." Candidates should always save copies of their own work.
- How do I confirm my portfolio has been submitted for scoring?
After you have agreed to the Submission attestations, a confirmation box will display stating "Your portfolio has been submitted for scoring." You will need to click 'Okay' in order to close this box.
Once your portfolio has been submitted, an email confirmation will be generated and sent to the email you indicated when creating your account on the edTPA website.
You may also confirm your portfolio has been submitted at any time by logging into your account and navigating to your View Scores and Testing History page. Successfully submitted portfolios will be listed there.
