Fieldwork Standards in Practice Forms and Training Modules

Observation Forms

Field Experiences: Observation forms or observation notes should be utilized each time you observe a student. The notes and/or forms are a record of how you have assisted the student in understanding their progress, thus they should be shared with them in some form. They are not submitted. If a student needs to be referred for additional support, then the forms/notes would need to be submitted with the Teacher Candidate Progress Review (TCPR) referral form to the Office of Field Experience.

Student Teaching: There is a prescribed form for student teaching observation. You do not need to submit the form unless an issue has arisen that needs some help in resolving. Note: The Department of Public Instruction Pi34 rule requires that a cooperating teacher complete and submit an observation form during the student teaching experience. University supervisors should follow-up with cooperating teachers at midterm to see that their observation form has been emailed to the assessment coordinator. Here is a link to the required observation form: SOE Student Teaching Observation Form (pdf)
