Residency Evalution Forms

In the past we used the LiveText system for collecting midterm and final student teacher evaluations, but we are moving to the use of Smartsheet to help us streamline data collection. Previously, mentors had to complete one portion of the evaluation in LiveText, then go to Qualtrics to write midterm goals. The use of Smartsheet allows us to put both pieces in one evaluation.

On Monday, February 15, mentor teachers will receive an email with a link to the midterm evaluation form. Please note that the midterm rubric consists of only two ratings: Unsatisfactory; and Basic/Beyond. Also, the midterm requires setting at least three goals for continued improvement.

Completing the midterm should be a shared experience between mentors and student teachers, so please sit down and go through the rating and goal setting process together. When the Submit button is clicked a copy of the evaluation will be emailed to the mentor, the student, and the supervisor.
