Student Teacher Performance Evaluation Form D

The Student Teacher Performance Evaluation - Form D is an external performance evaluation of pre-service teachers in the initial programs of the Educator Preparation Program at Sam Houston State University. In general, each candidate is evaluated by the University Supervisor one-time during student teaching while most candidates are evaluated by two Mentor Teachers, two different placements, during student teaching.  This is considered a culminating, summative evaluation. 

Form D has three major sections based on the following:

  1. Technology Standards based on the International Society for Technology in Education (NETS*T),
  2. The TExES EC-12 Pedagogy and Professional Responsibility Standards, and
  3. The SHSU Dispositions/Diversity proficiencies (DDP).

The evaluation is aligned to national, state, and College of Education (COE) instruments, integrated into the knowledge-base of the curriculum, demonstrated as skills during the clinical experience and measured with outcomes-based assessments at multiple levels. Utilizing a 3-point likert scale in which 1 = Rarely, 2 = Sometimes, and 3 = Consistently, the assessment is evaluated by two separate external evaluators. The outcomes of the evaluation are important measures of teacher readiness.

Revised during Academic Year, 2010-2011, data from the previous Form D, administered since AY 2005, offers an important measure. Data from the revised assessment are linked below, indicating trend data for all initial candidates; only two academic years' data are available at this time.
