Video recording requirements and guidelines
For Task 4, you’ll submit a video recording taken from a continuous lesson on a single day during your clinical experience. You have the option of submitting one 15-minute video segment or one video composed of three 5-minute video segments. Your video segments can’t be edited; if they appear to be edited, you’ll receive a score of zero for the entire task. Video segments from different days or classes can’t be combined. The footage needs to be from a single lesson event.
You’ll need to get permission for anyone who appears or can be heard in your video for Task 4. Use the PPAT Assessment Permission Forms; district and school permission forms won’t be accepted.
For detailed information about the Task 4 video recording guidelines, tips and permission, view the Candidate and Educator Handbook.

Videos used for training purposes
The assessment video will be deleted from ETS systems approximately 12 months after the final scores are reported for the submission window, with the exception of videos that’ll be used for training purposes. If you don’t want your video to be used for training purposes, email firstname.lastname@example.org and ETS will honor your request.
