(April 30, 2012, Washington, D.C.) – The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) and the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE) are eagerly supporting a nationwide field test of the Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA) that kicked off this spring.

The initiative has grown to now include more than 180 participating institutions in 25 states in the Teacher Performance Assessment Consortium (TPAC). With interest continuing to expand across the country, AACTE and SCALE seek to raise further awareness of the TPA, their roles in it and the manners in which the TPA fits into the greater educator preparation profession’s ongoing work.
