LiveText and edTPA

Teacher Preparation and Advising Office

What is LiveText?

LiveText is an electronic data system. Students will be required to use LiveText to submit assessments and other assignments to their instructors. Instructors can view, assess, and give feedback on assignments to students using LiveText.

In 2011 the College of Education opted to join the TPAC (Teacher Performance Assessment Consortium), which is a national student teacher assessment project. To participate in this project, student assessments must be submitted to scorers located across the country. LiveText provides a platform for the submission and scoring of these Teacher Performance Assessments.

What is edTPA?

edTPA™, formerly the Teacher Performance Assessment, was designed by teachers and teacher educators to support
candidate learning and provide data that support preparation program growth and renewal. Aligned with Common Core
State Standards and InTASC Standards, edTPA assesses teaching behaviors that focus on student learning. edTPA can be
integrated with other teacher candidate assessments such as clinical evaluations, GPA, and content knowledge
examinations to inform program completion decisions or as a metric for licensure. edTPA is a summative capstone
assessment to evaluate readiness to teach. It is also a source of evidence for program review, teacher licensure and/or
state and national accreditation. Except from Using edTPA document, below.*
