Title The Teacher Performance Assessment and Student Voice: Challenge for Teacher Education, Opportunity for Teaching
 
Creator Carroll, David M.; Western Washington University
 
Description The Teacher Performance Assessment is a mandated assessment required for teaching certification in Washington State. The TPA is still in the pilot phase in Washington and about 25 other states that have aligned themselves to varying degrees with using TPA scores as part of the licensure process for pre-service teacher education. Unique to the TPA in Washington is the “student voice” element, which challenges teacher candidates to foster a metacognitive awareness in learners about their own experiences with learning. In this article, I explain the student voice expectations built into the TPA, briefly describe the context of TPA support provided in the _____ teacher education program, explore the implications for learning to teach infused with a student voice perspective, and identify some particular challenges for teacher candidates and teacher educators in meeting the student voice expectations of the TPA.
