You will receive copies of your observation and evaluation forms automatically via your WGU email account when they are submitted by your clinical supervisor (CS) or host teacher (HT). Please allow up to one week for passes to post on your degree plan by Teacher Success and the Records office. Ensure that you have received copies of your forms before you inquire regarding the status of forms processing and assessment passes on your degree plan. Additionally, it is important to note:
If you are submitting a Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA) such as the edTPA that requires a third-party evaluation by Pearson or ETS, you must submit your TPA to the third-party vendor prior to the end of your current term. When you pass your TPA, the third-party submission date determines the date your TPA will pass on your degree plan.
If your passing score from the third-party vendor is expected after the end of your term, the WGU Records Office will pass your TPA assessment with the date that you submitted to the third-party vendor. In order for this process to occur, you must submit a copy of your third-party vendor submission confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org for the edTPA. Failure to submit your third-party submission confirmation email will impact the proper timing to pass the TPA on your degree plan.
If you submit your TPA after the end of a term, you will need to enroll in a new term and the pass will post in the new term.
No further action is required by you or your mentor if the TPA is submitted prior to the end of the term and scores are expected after the end of the term. Please work with your mentor for all term planning questions.
Remember, most assessments encompass two or more observations and the Teacher Success team cannot post midterm and final assessment grades prior to receiving evaluations from both the clinical supervisor and host teacher. If you are in a post baccalaureate or master’s degree teaching program, you must complete and pass your professional portfolio before your final evaluation will be passed and the grade posted.
