Abstract: Our participation in a Carnegie Foundation NIC (Network Improvement Community) assisted our program in planning quality implementation when starting our journey with “educative” Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) created by more than 100 faculty, national subject-matter organization representatives, and kindergarten through 12th grade teachers at the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE) (National Louis University,2015). The purpose of this paper serves to highlight the planning undertaken within our university, the instructional design and alignment we selected and emphasized using various technology tools, and how we implemented best practices in writing to interface with specific components of edTPA writing. Curricular alignment, examples of assignments, and the incorporation of "writing days” to prepare multiple content edTPA certification exams will be highlighted. Working smarter and planning upfront improves implementation and better program outcomes.
