Please note:

After each of the four domain checklists is a narrative section.

Narrative feedback is required on this document in each


domain.

Use the criteria listed below to evaluate the student teacher within each of
the four domains.

Advanced:
The advanced student teacher functions at a higher level; his/her total
understanding of underlying concepts is apparent; students are highly motivated
and engaged to the level they begin to assume responsibility for their own
learning; all common themes are distinguishable and appropriate.

Proficient:

The proficient student teacher is considered to be "capable," understands the


underlying concepts and consistently implements them well; student engagement
occurs frequently and common themes are clearly distinguishable.

Developing:

The developing student teacher understands some of the underlying concepts,


but is unsuccessful or inconsistent in the application of the elements; some
student engagement occurs and common themes may begin to emerge.

Unsatisfactory:
The "unsatisfactory" student teacher is working at a fundamental level, without
an understanding of underlying concepts; there are no common themes and
students are not engaged in the learning process; this person is below the
licensing standard of "do no harm." (Any unsatisfactory remarks will be reviewed
in the context of the students overall performance during the student teaching
experience. The student may be required to repeat the student teaching
experience.)
