You will perform two different types of assessments on your student teachers.
- InTASC (State Standards)
- Dispositions (Professional Behaviors)
These evaluations will be completed regularly throughout the experience as outlined below and on your evaluation documents. These evaluations are based on your observations and interactions with your student teacher. Examples of what you will be assessing are : lesson planning and preparation, lesson delivery, differentiating instruction, use of technology, pre-post assessments and professional behavior.
Summative - Final Evaluation
The final column of each evaluation is considered your "summative" evaluation. For this evaluation, you should consider ALL observations and interactions with the student teacher throughout the entire placement. This final summative evaluation will be recorded by you in Chalk and Wire at the end of the placement. More details are provided below under the Third Step heading.
In order to receive a passing grade, the final (summative) evaluation ratings for each standard must be at the Developing, Basic, or Proficient level. Not more than two standards can be Developing. A student teacher may NOT receive an unsatisfactory rating and still pass student teaching. If there was no opportunity to observe a criterion, choose Not Observed.
Reliability - First Observation
On the first observation , ask the cooperating teacher to complete the Cooperating Teacher InTASC Evaluation at the same time you complete yours. Discuss your respective interpretation of the rubric language as you compare your evaluations with each other, but don't change your original assessment.
Refer to the evaluation schedule below that supervisors should follow when completing evaluations.
