How tasks are scored

Each task is broken down into three steps, and each step is scored based on a 4-point rubric. The rubric delegates scores based on how well you encompassed all the required Teacher Leader Model Standards in your submission.

Steps are rated on a scale of 1 to 4, with 4 being the highest possible score. Steps that are determined to be nonscorable receive a score of 0.

For more information, see “Portfolio Scoring” in the PATL Candidate and Educator Handbook (PDF).
