Q: What is the time commitment for Scoring?

A: In addition to completing the Scorer training, Scorers are expected to score a minimum of at least 1 to 2 portfolios per week for a multi-month scoring session, subject to the number of submissions.  The total number of edTPAs available to each scorer will vary based on total number of submissions through the year.

Q: If I don’t qualify to score, what support is provided?

A:  An edTPA content support team member will contact you to discuss your qualification results and next steps. 

Q: Will I be asked to score a Washington edTPA?

Q: Am I required to complete the Washington Student Voice training module?

A: Only those assigned to score Washington edTPAs will be required to complete/review the Washington Student Voice training module (estimated duration of 1 hour).  You will be compensated an additional amount for completing this module.

Q: My campus is not implementing edTPA, can I still apply to become a scorer and attend training?

A:  Yes.  Our scorers include qualified teacher educators and PK-12 educators from across the country.  The number of qualified scorers needed to score edTPA is dependent upon the number of edTPAs submitted and content areas needed.
