Useful Tools for Completing MUAD Evaluation

  • MU Adapted Danielson Formative Observation Instrument - Recommended for use by cooperating teachers and university supervisors for individual observations.  This document should be used along with the MU Adapted Danielson Rubric for providing formative feedback.

  • MU Adapted Danielson Rubric - This document provides specific descriptions of criteria.  Use the rubric when completing both the MU Adapted Danielson Formative Observation Instrument and MU Adapted Danielson Formal Evaluation.

  • Mock - online MU Adapted Danielson Formal Evaluation - This mock-up is provided to give cooperating teachers and university supervisors a clear picture of the form they will complete online for formal evaluations.  It has the same elements as the formative observation instrument and four text boxes where narrative explanations should be entered for the four domains (Planning and Preparation, The Classroom Environment, Instruction, Professional Responsibilities).  Please note that the ratings available for student teachers are Unsatisfactory, Basic, and Proficient.
