Student Teaching Handbook
DIRECTED TEACHING (STUDENT TEACHING) EVALUATION
- The evaluation instruments are designed to reflect the College of Education & Professional Studies' Conceptual Framework (“The Teacher is a Reflective Facilitator”), as found on pages 2 to 4 in this handbook. The revised instruments are also designed to reflect the Wisconsin Teacher Standards (Appendix A-1) and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) 2000 Unit Standards (Appendix A-2). In some cases, the evaluation instruments are also linked to specialty organizations, such as the Council for Exceptional Children.
- Interim evaluation . Cooperating teachers and student teachers are required to complete the evaluation instrument for the student teachers’ specific program at approximately the mid-point of the placement. They should complete the instrument independently, share the results with the student teacher’s university supervisor, and use the results as the central feature of a two-way (student teacher and cooperating teacher) or three-way (student teacher, cooperating teacher, and university supervisor) conference. Cooperating teachers are required to return their interim evaluation form to the university supervisor. The university supervisor forwards the interim evaluation form to the Office of Field Experiences where it is filed for five years and then destroyed.
- Final evaluation . Near or at the end of the placement, cooperating teachers and student teachers are again required to complete the evaluation instrument, following the same procedures as those outlined for the interim evaluation. Cooperating teachers are required to return their final evaluation form to the university supervisor. The university supervisor forwards the final evaluations form to the Office of Field Experiences where it is filed for five years and then destroyed
