Fall 2012

This form reflects the understandings of the student teacher’s strengths and remaining areas of growth since the midterm conference, as discussed by the student teacher, cooperating teacher, and IWU supervisor at the final conference. To complete this form, reference the midterm evaluation, evidence presented since that time by the student teacher, the final assessment form completed by the cooperating teacher, and the supervisor’s site observations records. The completed form is reviewed by the student teacher and cooperating teacher, and signed by all parties within one week of the final conference. The student teacher receives a copy of the form. The IWU supervisor submits an electronic copy of the completed evaluation form to the Educational Studies office at the end of the term.


1.  For each indicator, note the quality of evidence provided by the student teacher according to the assessment rubric below. Please note that any one evidence item may address more than one standard and indicator. In addition, not all performance indicators yield physical evidence. Student teachers may provide narrative oral evidence. Supporting observations from cooperating teacher and supervisor are critical in those instances.

·  Ample evidence of proficiency presented by student teacher (indicators met beyond expectations of novice teacher).

·  Sufficient evidence of proficiency presented by student teacher (indicator met).

·  Some evidence of proficiency presented by student teacher (indicator met to some extent).

·  Little or no evidence of proficiency presented by student teacher (indicator not met).

2.  Also note:

·  Whether or not the cooperating teacher and IWU supervisor observations provide further evidence of the student teacher’s level of proficiency with respect to the standard indicators.

·  Whether or not opportunities for development noted at the midterm conference were satisfactorily addressed by the student teacher.

·  Whether or not the cooperating teacher and/or IWU supervisor consider the level of proficiency demonstrated by the student teacher to be an area of concern with respect to qualifying for certification.

3.  For each standard, provides a summary of the student teacher’s strengths with respect to the intent of the standard, and if applicable, any areas requiring further development. The supervisor assigns a final performance score for the standard based on the above notations, using the assessment rubric below.

Exemplary (6): The student teacher has provided ample, consistent, and outstanding evidence of his or her competence across each standard and indicator. Considerable and strong supporting observations from the cooperating teacher and IWU supervisor. Performance far beyond that of a novice teacher. These scores are rarely assigned.

Proficient (5, 4): The student teacher has provided sufficient, consistent, and strong evidence of his or her competence across all standards and almost all indicators. Supporting observations from the cooperating teacher and supervisor, although a few areas of further development may be noted. Demonstrates competence as a novice teacher. These are scores for all student teachers to strive toward.

Developing (3, 2): The student teacher has provided some evidence of his or her competence across all standards and most indicators, but of mixed consistency and quality. Supporting observations from the cooperating teacher and supervisor indicate mixed or inconsistent performance across the standard indicators and continuing areas for improvement.

Unsatisfactory (1): The student teacher has provided little or no evidence of his or her competence across the standards and indicators, despite

opportunities to do so. Supporting observations from the cooperating teacher and supervisor indicate problematic performance.
