If you would like to retake a CalTPA instructional cycle, you need to re-register, pay all applicable fees, and complete and upload a new submission for scoring.
Candidates must wait to receive scores from the earlier submission before registering to retake a cycle.
When a cycle is retaken, the previous submission is not considered during scoring. The new submission is scored in its entirety without reference to the previously submitted assessment materials.
All work must be completed according to the cycle instructions in use during the program year of the retake and will be scored according to the rubrics and passing standard in use at the time of submission.
In most cases, retakes must include new evidence that has not previously been submitted for scoring. However, if appropriate, the original, revised or edited versions of previously submitted materials may be part of the retake submission, as indicated by the examples listed in the table below.
|Reason for Retake||Conditions for Resubmitting Materials|
|Performance standard not met||If you are providing instruction to the same group of students as in the original submission, some materials may be resubmitted given your performance on the related rubric(s).|
|One or more condition codes applied, indicating that materials were not scorable||Some evidence may not need to be revised if those materials were not impacted by the condition code(s) applied to the original submission. For example, if a condition code was applied because a video clip was unplayable, then a playable version of the same clip can be submitted along with all your other original materials. However, if the new clip features different evidence than cited in the original written narrative, then the written narrative must also be revised.|
|Score voided||If not noted as the reason for the score void, some original materials may be included as part of the new submission.|
Candidates electing to retake a cycle based on a prior submission that received condition codes should carefully review the CalTPA Submission Requirements and Condition Codes, any condition code(s) applied to the original submission, and the current cycle directions and rubrics under the guidance of their preparation programs prior to resubmitting materials for scoring.
