What is it
What is it?

  • Pathwise is an observation-based assessment system which aims to measure teacher effectiveness in a standardized way.

  • ETS (makers of the GRE, SAT, and A.P. exams) developed Pathwise in order to consistently measuring teacher performance.

  • Many states and districts use this form for teacher evaluation purposes.

  • COE uses this as one measure of your growth as a teacher.

Where do i get the forms
Where do I get the forms?

  • http://www.berrysclass.net/inttch.html

    Look under the Pathwise section at the top.

  • I would print out a few blank ones and keep them on hand. You never know when you might need one 


How do i do it
How do I do it?

  • With your mentor teacher, decide what you want to co-teach and when you want to be observed. (Be mindful of the “observation window.”)

  • Sign up for an observation.

  • Co-write and submit your lesson plan to Kevin 48 hours before your scheduled observation.


What else do i do
What else do I do?

  • The morning of your observation, each complete the pre-observation interview page. Kevin will try to drop by to chat with you before your observation.

  • Give your pre-observation pages to Kevin when he arrives to observe you.

  • Teach your heart out, and watch your students learn.

  • After you are finished, complete your post-observation summary sheet and put in Kevin’s mailbox by the end of the day.

  • You will arrange to have a post-observation meeting with Kevin.


You mean there is more
You mean there is more?

  • Kevin will write summary statements that explain how great you are. He might give you a few ideas about what you might want to explore doing in the future.

  • You will sign the form, and it will go into your folder.

  • You will use what you’ve learned in this experience every day in your placement, and apply it to your next observation.
