2019-2020 CTC Meeting Schedule



"Update from CTC - CalAPA assessor training"  - CTC January 2019

Dear CAPEA Members, 

A quick reminder that the CTC, with its technical contractor Evaluation Systems group of Pearson, is holding CalTPA and CalAPA assessor trainings in San Diego on January 29-30 and January 31-Feb 1, 2019 at the Point Loma University, Mission Valley campus, located in San Diego. 

What do educators gain from joining this important work?

·       By participating in the CalTPA and CalAPA assessor training processes and discussions, teachers and leaders learn deeply about the expectations (TPEs and CAPE) for quality teaching and leading measured by these two performance assessments.

·       By attending and calibrating at the two day training, educators who support the development of new teachers and leaders will gain valuable and specific understanding about the requirements for effective practice and how to support candidates as they engage with these required assessments.

·       Professional development. Educators who join the process have the opportunity to discuss teaching and leading with other colleagues, contribute to furthering understanding of effective beginning practices, and to gain insight about the range of teaching and leading practices that candidates are able to demonstrate from across the state.

·       Assessors are paid for their time to attend the training and for each submission scored once calibrated.

We are still seeking assessors for both the CalTPA and APA to join us for trainings to be held in San Diego later this month and in early February in Irvine.  Please share the dates and assessor application  links found below.  It is important that we have a balance of assessors across the state to meet this goal we need more assessors from southern California to join the assessor pool.

Thank you for sharing this professional development opportunity with your colleagues this week so that they have time to apply and be assigned to the San Diego assessor trainings.  (Additional training is being held in the LA area and in northern California which are also available if the SD dates don’t work.)

Happy New Year!

Amy Reising
