  • How do I register and pay fees for the edTPA?
    • Fees for Pearson scoring will be built into your student teaching tuition, effective fall 2015. The Professional Education Program will provide you with a voucher number that you will use to register with Pearson and upload your edTPA materials to Chalk and Wire for submission to Pearson. Students will need to subscribe to Chalk and Wire no later than one semester prior to your student teaching semester. Chalk and Wire subscriptions may be purchased at the UWSP Bookstore. (See Chalk and Wire)
