Building and Submitting Tasks for the PASL Assessment

For the PASL assessment, you’ll build tasks and submit task responses via your ETS account. During your clinical experience, you should collect multiple artifacts and videos in case you need to resubmit any tasks. If you didn’t receive a passing score for the assessment, you’re eligible to register to resubmit responses to Tasks 1, 2 and/or 3. See Resubmitting Your Tasks.

Review Dates and Deadlines to make sure you don’t miss any submission deadlines.


Written responses, artifacts and video

You’ll submit your task responses, artifacts and Task 3 video through your ETS account.


Be sure to download the following important documents:



For each task, you’ll submit a written response along with other types of evidence or artifacts, such as student work samples, a professional development plan and quotes from colleagues.

For more about artifacts and how to determine the best artifacts to use as evidence, review the “Thinking About Evidence” section of the Handbook.

For instructions on how to enter your written responses and upload/attach artifacts, view the User Guide.

Video recording

For Task 3, you’ll submit a video of you interacting with colleagues. It has to be one 15-minute video consisting of:

  • one 5-minute segment from Textbox 3.2.2 or Textbox 3.3.1
  • one 10-minute reflective segment from Textbox 3.4.1

Your video segments can’t be edited; if they appear to be edited, you’ll receive a score of 0 for the entire task.

You’ll need to get permission from anyone who appears or can be heard in your video. Use the PASL Assessment Permission Forms; district and school permission forms won’t be accepted.

For detailed information about the Task 3 video recording, guidelines, tips and permission, view the Candidate and Educator Handbook.
