We know that taking the first step can be daunting, so we wanted to provide some pointers on planning for the IA-TPA:
1. Activate your Educopia account. If you cannot find your activation email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get a new activation email.
2. Work with your mentor to identify a unit of study that has 2 formative assessments and a summative assessment at the end.
3. Check in with your mentor to review the IA-TPA Teacher Handbook and identify the work that will need to be collected and consider what the commentaries are asking you to analyze and reflect upon.
4. Set a date for when you will finish uploading your work to your mentor for feedback.
It’s actually pretty simple, and it’s a valuable exercise to developing your craft, so get started today!
