    • Proficient
    • Distinguished
levels of performance for the teaching work sample
Levels of Performance for the Teaching Work Sample
  • Below Basic
    • The teacher candidate does not appear to understand the concepts underlying the component. Working on the fundamental practices associated with the elements will enable the teacher to grow and develop in this area.
levels of performance for the teaching work sample16
Levels of Performance for the Teaching Work Sample
  • Basic
    • The teacher candidate appears to understand the concepts underlying the component and attempts to implement its elements. But implementation is sporadic, intermittent, or otherwise not entirely successful. Additional reading, discussion, visiting classrooms of other teachers, and experience (particularly that which is supported by a mentor) will enable the teacher to become proficient in this area.
levels of performance for the teaching work sample17
Levels of Performance for the Teaching Work Sample
  • Proficient
    • The teacher candidate clearly understands the concepts underlying the component and implements it well. Most capable teacher candidates will regard themselves, and be regarded by others as performing at this level.
levels of performance for the teaching work sample18
Levels of Performance for the Teaching Work Sample
  • Distinguished
    • Teacher candidates at this level produce exemplary work. Their classrooms operate at a qualitatively different level, consisting of a community of learners, with students highly motivated and engaged and assuming considerable responsibility for their own learning.
teaching work sample scoring rubric
Teaching Work Sample Scoring Rubric
  • 0 or 1= TWS Criteria Not Met
  • 2 or 3 = TWS Criteria Met
  • Teacher candidate must receive a minimum score of 2 in all categories. If a 0 or 1 is received in any section, the candidate must correct and resubmit the section for reevaluation. (See pages 8-10)

  • Write appropriate number of objectives per lesson (usually 2-5) which are linked to K-12 content standards
  • After pre-assessment, refer back to goals and objectives and revise as appropriate.
timeline and lesson plans
Timeline and Lesson Plans
  • A teacher candidate must be able to design instructional content which is logically sequenced, positively impacts student learning, and is appropriate for the grade level.
  • Lessons
    • Link goals, objectives, and K-12 content standards
    • Utilize assessment results that identify student knowledge (what was learned in your lesson)
    • Utilize daily reflection to document data from lesson, demonstrate ability to use the data for instruction, and to make adjustments to the next day’s lesson, if needed.
    • Utilize embedded technology as a natural part of lessons.
timeline and lesson plan tasks
Timeline and Lesson Plan Tasks
  • Pre-Assessment
    • “What do they already know?”
  • Timeline
    • Developed based on goals, objectives, standards, and results of pre-assessment
    • Overview of sequence of instruction
  • Daily Lesson Plans
    • Detailed enough so a sub could deliver!
    • CT and US review lesson plans prior to delivery
    • See pages 14-15 for specific information
timeline and lesson plan tasks28
Timeline and Lesson Plan Tasks
  • Technology
    • Embedded in the less as a natural part of instruction.
    • Select and use technology to enhance presentation of lesson.
  • Daily Reflection Logs (see Appendix D)
    • What does data analysis show?
    • Were lesson objectives met?
    • Were students engaged in the content?
    • What instructional decisions were made to adjust the next lesson? (review, re-teach, remediate, accelerate)
    • What changes need to be made on the timeline and/or next lesson plan?
timeline and lesson plan tasks29
Timeline and Lesson Plan Tasks
  • Remember, you may not begin teaching the lessons until your CT and US have checked your timeline. For future lesson plans, the cooperating teacher will review lesson plans prior to your teaching of the lesson. Email the lesson plans to the university supervisor.
assessment
Assessment
  • Prior to teaching the unit, pre-assess students.
  • Pre-assessment shows you what your students already know and what they don’t know.
  • Pre-assessment data will be compared to post-assessment data to judge student learning and to make recommendations for the future.
assessment tasks
Assessment Tasks
  • Pre-Assessment
    • Choose a standardized exam or create an assessment for the unit.
    • Include pre-skills and/or knowledge necessary to successfully complete the unit.
    • Keep in mind what students should know (based on the objectives) at the end of the unit so learning can be measured.
    • Submit the assessment to the US and CT for feedback
    • Administer pre-assessment.
    • After assessment, refer back to goals and objectives and revise as appropriate.
assessment tasks32
Assessment Tasks
  • On-Going Assessment
    • Daily assessment should be done.
    • Assessment should be used as part of the evaluation of instruction and planning of future instruction.
    • Some forms of assessment can be used for pre- and post-assessment, while others are more suitable for ongoing assessment.
assessment tasks33
Assessment Tasks
  • Post-Assessment
    • Choose a standardized exam, if available, create an assessment tool, or use the pre-assessment for the unit.
    • Submit the assessment to the US and CT for feedback
    • Administer post-assessment
    • Pre- and post-assessment evaluations must produce data to show change in student knowledge. (Simple observation will not produce discernible and quantifiable differences.)
    • Note: In addition to the above, include the following:
      • Examples of several students’ completed written work
      • Work from high, average, and low performers
      • A variety of students (not always the same ones)
      • Students’ work samples should be scanned and submitted electronically
data analysis recommendations
Data Analysis & Recommendations
  • Data collected from your assessments need to be analyzed
    • To use in developing the unit
    • To determine the effectiveness of the unit
  • Analysis of all assessments (pre-, on-going, and post-assessment) should be done for
    • Each individual student
    • The class as a whole
data analysis recommendations35
Data Analysis & Recommendations
  • Pre-Assessment Analysis
    • Will help you identify what majority of students know
    • Will help you identify small groups or individuals who are learning differently than the majority (ahead or behind majority)
    • Will help you consider the needs of those who are significantly behind or ahead of the majority
    • When completed, the data of the pre-assessment and analysis of data must be emailed to the US.
data analysis recommendations36
Data Analysis & Recommendations
  • On-Going Assessment
    • Daily assessment is required
    • Can be combination of informal and formal assessment tools
    • Used to help you prepare the next day’s lesson.
    • Results of daily analysis should be included as part of the daily lesson plan reflection.
data analysis recommendations37
Data Analysis & Recommendations
  • Post-Assessment
    • Use the pre- and post-assessment data to show student learning took place as a result of your instruction of this unit.
    • Post-assessment data should be analyzed for individual students.
    • Post-assessment data should be analyzed for the entire class.
    • Use charts and graphs to illustrate.
data analysis recommendations38
Data Analysis & Recommendations
  • Recommendations
    • Help drive future instruction of the class.
    • Should be based on the analysis of the data from the pre- and post-assessment of the unit.
    • Should consider the learning of the majority.
    • Should consider the learning of any individual or small groups identified through the pre-assessment.
    • Results of data analysis should be used in writing the report to parents of individual students, and in the meeting held with the CT and US.
summary of student progress
Summary of Student Progress
  • You must be able to disseminate information drawn from the data analysis to several stakeholders:
    • Students
    • Parents or guardians
