Evaluation Level I and Level II
In collaboration with the Cooperating Teacher, the University Supervisor will fulfill a pivotal role in deciding whether the Level I and/or Level II Student Teacher passes the student teaching experience. Therefore, it is vitally important that the evaluations be completed accurately and fairly. All formal evaluations must be made in regularly scheduled visits throughout the placement and must last for an entire instructional session. The University Supervisor must include specific comments and review the results with the Student Teacher following the observation.
It is the responsibility of the University Supervisor to report any concerns to the Office of Student Teaching/Clinical Experience. If the Student Teacher is not progressing in their placement the University Supervisor must inform the Office of Student Teaching/Clinical Experience so that a determination can be made as to how best to proceed. Every attempt should be made to identify areas of concern by the midpoint in the semester. However, the Office of Student Teaching /Clinical Experience reserves the authority to make final grade and placement determinations. Options include the development of a remediation plan, repetition of the placement, or removal from the program.
The Level I and Level II student teaching experiences are graded on a pass/fail basis. The purpose of evaluations is to determine the readiness of the Teacher Candidate to be recommended for teacher certification.
