GYO Student-Teaching Evaluations

Student-teaching evaluations consist of both formal and informal observations. This page addresses the formal, standards-based evaluations that are conducted by both mentor teachers and university field supervisors. 


InTASC Standards

in 2011, the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) developed 10 core teaching standards. Washington State law requires that teacher preparation programs use these standards to assess student-teachers. 

A brief summary of each standard can be found here: InTASC – Field Progression

A more detailed explanation of each standard, including specific “look fors,” can be found at the official inTASC website.

All four InTASC evaluations will be completed online. Links will be emailed to the appropriate parties at the appropriate times.
