I hope to provide you with up to date information you can use about the new CDA 2.0 process.The new process will be launched on June1. In the meantime, those who have begun working on the Professional Resource File can rest assured that these will still be accepted and reviewed until
December 1 of this year, even if you happen to apply for your CDA
after May 31. If you do not plan to begin work on your file until after
May 31, you will be assembling the new Professional Portfolio. This will look different and will include different resources than the Professional Resource File. For example, the resource collection will only consist of 10 items instead of 17, but some of these will have sub-parts with additional items. There is a new format for the Statements of Competence.This is the new title for what used to be the Competency Goal Statements. Candidates will still provide information about how they are meeting each of the Functional Areas through their work in the classroom, but there is a new format that interconnects with the Resource Collection. Also, each Functional Area is no longer addressed separately, but instead collectively within each of the Competency Goals.
