    • All Certificate of Eligibility with Advanced Standing (CEAS) and Certificate of Eligibility (CE) candidates will be required to complete and pass edTPA by meeting or exceeding the New Jersey Department of Education established passing standard.

    The edTPA (Teacher Performance Assessment) certification requirements focus on five key dimensions of teaching: planning, instruction, assessment, written commentary about teaching practice, and academic language. As a performance-based assessment, completion of the requirements is embedded in the provisional teacher classroom experience (usually in the last semester, Phase IV, of a candidate’s program).The assessments include rigorous written commentary, video submission, and assessments as evidence of teaching skill, but more importantly of student learning. Each credential (content) area has its own “Handbook” that includes details and guidance about meeting your specific certification requirements. You will have access to your credential area handbook through this phase. You must complete and pass your edTPA assessment according to New Jersey Scores: Scores for New Jersey Subject Areas

    *If you do not pass the assessment, we offer a summer edTPA refresher course called Phase V.

    Payment Fees: Phase IV Course Fee: $1,250.00; In addition, there is a EdTPA fee paid directly to Pearson, $300.00 (completed on candidates own on the Pearson portal during the registration class).
