Pearson edTPA Scorers (History & Social Studies) - Remote Part-time in Des Moines, Iowa
Pearson is currently seeking experienced PK-12 educators and Higher Education teacher educators to evaluate Middle Childhood and Secondary History & Social Studies portfolios for edTPA for the 2022 Spring Administration.
Developed for educators by educators, edTPA is the first nationally available performance-based assessment for beginning teachers. It is designed to support teacher candidate learning and provide actionable evidence that supports preparation program renewal. Aligned with college and career readiness standards, InTASC Standards and commonly used teacher evaluation frameworks; edTPA assesses teaching that promotes student learning in diverse contexts. edTPA scorers contribute to the teaching profession by supporting the assessment and an evidence-based process that can make objective, comparable, and valid evaluation of teaching skills and readiness for the classroom.
