Abstract

The research question was: How effective is the current edTPA mentoring and support program for teacher candidates? This research utilized mixed method interactive program evaluation. An online survey collected teacher candidates' perceptions of mentoring and support for edTPA. The survey questions were organized around four constructs: Preparedness, support from instructor, support from university supervisors, and support from cooperating teacher. With N = 46, a comprehensive data analysis was conducted that identified areas of strength and need of the program. As a result, the researchers developed an edTPA mentoring and support program model.
