Please note that official score reports are only available to educator preparation programs at the implementation level of edTPA membership. Due to laws protecting confidentiality and privacy of candidates, only candidates may inquire about their edTPA scores. Each educator preparation program designates an edTPA score reporting contact. This contact may access the following types of reports through their secure score reporting website:

  • Score Reports for candidates will be available per the submission and reporting schedule.
  • General Reports using ResultsAnalyzer®: Contacts may generate reports for all handbook areas within a defined timeframe.
  • Custom Reports using ResultsAnalyzer®: Contacts may generate handbook-specific or population-specific data for their state or program.
  • Candidate Status Reports are accessible to edTPA score report contacts. This report is updated daily and lists the current status of candidates from their program as registered, submitted, and withdrawn.

Accessing edTPA Reports

edTPA results reports will be made available to the edTPA reporting contacts. The edTPA reporting contact will log in to Pearson's secure reporting site. Once logged in to the website, users will use ResultsAnalyzer® to view reports and generate custom reports that include up-to-date results.

Score Delays due to Administrative Review

In some cases, the release of a candidate's edTPA results may be delayed as the result of an administrative review. An administrative review may occur for several reasons, including confirmation that a submission meets all requirements and is in compliance with the rules of assessment participation. Read more about administrative reviews.
