Brief Overview of the Day
Nicole Merino, Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity  (SCALE)
The purpose of the day – looking at candidate work in relation to edTPA rubrics in order to better understand the assessment and its expectations - will be shared.  As a whole group, we will briefly review the common architecture of edTPA. Participants will review the number of tasks and associated rubrics, commentaries, and artifacts. A process for how to examine work in relation to the rubrics will be introduced.  Considerations of “reviewer bias” will also be discussed. 

9:00-10:15

Task 1 - Planning for Instruction and Assessment
As a whole group we will review Task 1- Planning. The lead facilitator will review the requirements for this task and the associated rubric constructs.  Participants will then work in their content-specific groups to review the provided sample for Task 1 in relation to the rubrics associated with Task 1.   Participants will use the process provided to make a determination of what performance level is the best description of the work under review.
