What is the Teacher Performance Assessment?

As of July 2008, California statute (Chap. 517, Stats. 2006) requires all candidates for a preliminary Multiple and Single Subject Teaching Credential to pass an assessment of their teaching performance with K-12 public school students as part of the requirements for earning a teaching credential. This assessment of teaching performance is designed to measure the candidate's knowledge, skills and ability with relation to California's Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs), including demonstrating his/her ability to appropriately instruct all K-12 students in the Student Academic Content Standards. All candidates who start a Commission-approved multiple and single subject teacher preparation program as of July 1, 2008 must meet the teaching performance assessment requirement.

TPA Remediations/Revisions and Requirements

Revised TPA procedures include:

  • Task Submission Dates vary for each task each semester - Dates differ by program (Multiple or Single Subject) and are solely responsible for timely submission of TPA tasks. 
  • Failure to submit a TPA Task on the Due Date - Students who fail to submit a TPA task on the due date must enroll in the Extended Education (UEE) course for that TPA task prior to submitting the late task. UEE Enrollment requires paid tuition which may vary by semester. 
  • Failure of TPA Task and Resubmission – Any failed task requires UEE enrollment in the TPA Remediation course prior to resubmission of the task. UEE Enrollment requires paid tuition which may vary by semester.

All TPA late submissions and remediation will require University Extended Education (UEE) enrollment and paid tuition which may vary by semester.
