You will complete three different types of evaluations for your student teacher
- InTASC Evaluation (Based on State Standards)
- Dispositions Evaluation (Professional Behaviors)
- Lesson Critique (Lesson Delivery and Preparation)
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 (InTASC & Dispositions)
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.
In order to receive a passing grade, the 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 (InTASC)
On the first observation , plan to complete the InTASC Evaluation at the same time the university supervisor completes his/hers. Compare your scoring with each other and discuss areas you differ in your assessment.
Student teachers must use the required Lesson Plan template when preparing their lessons. Use the Lesson Critique form to evaluate lessons taught by the student teacher, four times for a fourteen week placement and twice for a 6, 7, or 8 week placement. The Lesson Critique should be completed according to the schedule below. An informational Lesson Critique Checklist is provided to assist you in evaluating the lessons. Review each evaluation with the student teacher and discuss areas of strength and areas needing improvement. The student teacher should sign the form after you discuss the evaluation. Please make your evaluations available during the supervisor's observation visits.
You will not record a summative evaluation for lesson evaluations.
Refer to the Evaluation Schedule below for when you should complete the evaluations:
