Yep, I took it- filled out the papers when I was on maternity leave. My goal was to fail so I could take the ATSW, since the safety net was still in effect then. But I passed, somehow.

The head of my program wondered if they saw a 9-months-pregnant woman in the video and took pity...

Truthfully, I just wrote what I knew they wanted to hear. I fit my lesson plans to the videos. I made sure I had a bunch of stuff to support special ed students and ELLs, since I know that that's a big deal nowadays.

Idk, you can probably get better advice from someone here who did it properly.

I took it last year with tti. I passed bh. Take your professors feedback seriously and make changes. Include a lot of supports etc and explain why in many ways. When doing the tasks more explaining is better. Elaborate.

Um make sure to include everything they ask. There are lots of details in every question.

Nope. I was already teaching in the DOE at that point and just needed to get my certification. I was fully prepared to take the ATSW.

I was not prepared for the EdTPA at all. Math education is much more focused on the math than the education.
