To which of the Australian Program Standards does a Teaching Performance Assessment (TPA) apply?

A teaching performance assessment (TPA) is an instrument used to assess the practical skills and knowledge of pre-service teachers against the Graduate Teacher Standards in the final year of their initial teacher education program.

Program Standard 1.2 requires that a TPA be situated in a classroom environment in order to demonstrate a range of authentic teaching practices. The TPA must be a requirement of successful completion of the program and must be completed during the final year.
