Educator Preparation

CAP Online Platform

The CAP Online Platform embeds the process and content outlined in the CAP Guidelines Download Word Document and Implementation Handbook Download Word Document into a web application that participants can use to complete forms and communicate in real time. All Sponsoring Organizations are required to submit their Formative and Summative Assessments using the Online Platform, but we encourage its full use throughout the assessment because it makes communication and collaboration easier and reduces both travel and reliance on printed forms.

To access the online platform as a CAP Manager, Program Supervisor, or Supervising Practitioner, go to the DESE Security Portal.

To access the online platform as a Teacher Candidate, go to the ELAR Log In Page.
