Student teaching assessment is done in each of the two required student teaching placements. At the mid-point of each placement, the Teacher Candidate (TC) self-assesses and the School-Based Teacher (SBTE) provides a formative assessment of candidate performance. At the end of each placement, the SBTE and the College Supervisor (CS) provides a summative assessment of candidate performance.
The mid-assessment is comprised of items based upon Danielson's four domains: I. Planning and Preparation, II. Classroom Environment, III. Instruction, and IV. Professional Responsibilities and in some cases, Discipline-Specific items that align with a particular Specialized Professional Association (SPA).
The end assessment is comprised of the items from the mid-assessment plus the Global Assessment of Candidate Performance (GACP), the PEU wide assessment aligned to the Professional Education Unit-Conceptual Framework (PEU-CF).
Each item on the mid and end assessment instruments is rated using a four-category performance scale: Unacceptable, Developing, Proficient, and Exemplary. The criteria for each rating is given in the instrument.
The aggregate candidate performance expectation for programs and the PEU are: 90-100% of the candidates are Developing or Better thus providing evidence of demonstrating the knowledge or skill, 80% or better are Proficient or better, 5-10% are Exemplary, and less than 5% are Unacceptable/Not Applicable/Missing.
