On December 4, 2019, Dr. Drew Gitomer and three colleagues published an article in the American Educational Research Journal. It was titled “Assessing the Assessment: Evidence of Reliability and Validity in the edTPA.” By December 5, the article had nearly gone viral on Twitter by opponents of edTPA.
Drew joins us today on Anchored in Education to talk more about this article and why we should be concerned with edTPA being used as a tool to decide if teacher candidates should receive a teaching license. Drew and his colleagues make valid arguments for why a moratorium should be issued on the high-stakes use of edTPA.
The article “Assessing the Assessment: Evidence of Reliability and Validity in the edTPA” has been restricted by the publishing journal. Anchored in Education is working to find an available copy to publish without violating copyright laws. Please check back for updates.
