Instructions

This reliability exercise should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.  You will first watch a video clip of a student teacher presenting a lesson and then assess the performance by completing the three evaluation tools provided.  

We fully understand and expect some N/A responses. These tools are meant to evaluate much more than a single lesson. Please feel free to only mark the standards that are evidenced in the video clip.

You may want to print paper copies of the evaluation tools in order to evaluate the student teacher as you watch the video. You will record your ratings using a link to Survey Monkey, which will arrive in an email. 

Reliability Exercise

Step One: First, print the three evaluation forms

 
Step Two: Next, view the student teacher video clip (Video Link) with the forms in front of you, marking the ratings as you watch. Use N/A when appropriate. You may view the video as many times as necessary.
 
 
Step Three: Enter your scores in Survey Monkey.
(You will receive an email from Kathy McElroy with a link to Survey Monkey.  If you do not receive the email, please notify Kathy McElroy (lockhart@graceland.edu).
 
Step Four: Click the Discussion Board link on the last page of the survey to view comments by other evaluators and participate in the discussion.
