BTSA is a formative assessment for California Teachers (FACT) in which beginning teachers receive support from experienced teachers on a weekly basis in order to develop individualized growth plans aligned to the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP). BTSA is a collaborative and reflective process embedded into the teacher's job. Teachers who participate in BTSA can earn university credit as they move through the FACT system.
