    Haven't found out my results of my edtpa. My results come out next Thursday, what should I do? In order to be credentialed, I need tonpass the edtpa, but if I fail? Do I accept and let them know that I failed when I found out? I have no idea what I should do. This is my last semester at student teaching, so I'm nervous.

    If someone wants to hire you, they probably know the situation. I wouldn't pass on an offer if you can get one.

    I agree, it would be a shame to pass up this opportunity. It's just, I'd feel I'd let them down if I let them know after I accept the job offer. Edtpa is such a new process now, and my classmate failed his, so I'm not so confident that I'll pass. I should trust that they know the risks? How long will they wait for me to decide to accept it or not? They want me to reply and send documents confirming my acceptance.

    In addition, I do hope I did pass my Edtpa. But all I can do now is cross my fingers and wait on the results.

    Most of the time, the acceptance is contingent on all required credentials. Even though the TPA is new, most administrators know that it is part of licensing. If it's a school you want to work at, by all means accept when you have the chance.

    I would accept the job and let them know if you end up not passing your exam.
