CalTPA Program Materials

Recent legislation (SB 1209) mandated that all programs of elementary and secondary teacher preparation adopt a state-approved system of teacher performance assessment (TPA), to be embedded in the credential program of preparation, beginning with all credential candidates who enroll subsequent to July 1, 2008.

State accreditation standards for our programs of teacher preparation now require that our campus comply with the strict requirements of this assessment system.

Implementation versions of the CalTPA Candidate Handbook, Task, and Rubrics are available at the CalTPA website.  All programs should be using only these versions as of July 1, 2008.

In addition to the program materials above, CSUSM Program Specific Materials (Lesson Design & rubric, Unit Plan & rubric and seminar media site) can be found under the link CalTPA Information for CSUSM Teacher Candidates (see right side under Quick Links).
