Evaluation Terminology


Reserved for rating the teaching performance at an unusually high level of proficiency which is sustained at that level throughout the semester. It is rarely achieved by first semester candidates.

Indicates that the teacher candidate who has reached this exceptional nature of mastery could serve to demonstrate a teaching lesson for other teachers.


  • Demonstrates a high level of teaching performance which indicates enough competence to warrant making independent decisions about planning and implementation of lessons without the constant coaching of the Master Teacher.
  • Ensures generally that the goals of the lesson are met satisfactorily by the students in the classroom.


  • Indicates an adequate level of understanding of the principles involved but needs to put them into practice more skillfully.


  • Reveals a low level of performance stemming from an inability to comprehend or demonstrate essential skills in planning and teaching. Generally these deficiencies signal a correlative problem in classroom management and control.
  • A teacher candidate who receives four or more marks at this level on the final evaluation Will receive a grade of N/C and will NOT be recommended for a credential.


  • Indicates an unacceptable level of performance. Teacher candidates who are rated at this level on one or more competencies will NOT receive credit for their student teaching and will NOT be recommended for a credential.
