The purpose of this study was to discover and describe the effectiveness of edTPA mentoring and support program designed by the researchers measured by teacher candidates' perceptions. Within that research purpose, a research theory and/or model was constructed to describe a framework for effective preparation and teacher candidates' support program, which might lead to a successful completion/submission of edTPA entry and increase the probability of attaining a state teaching license.
