Student Teaching/Internship Evauation Forms
The Clinical Practice Assessment System - CPAS
For use in practica, student teaching and internships, this system is designed to reflect a range of performance from Emerging to Exceptional in skills and behaviors in teacher candidates based on the INTASC standards. Three documents make up the CPAS evaluations: (1) the Rubric of descriptors, (2) the Formative Evaluation form (26 indicators), and (3) the Final Evaluation form (10 INTASC Standards + narrative).

Rubric(pdf) - The 10 INTASC Standards for Beginning Teachers provide the foundation for CPAS. The rubric contains leveled descriptions of the 10 INTASC Standards for teaching performance.
5 - Exceptional: demonstrates superior or consistent and holistic application of the indicators
3 - Competent: meets the indicators at a competent level
1 - Emerging: attempts to meet the indicators
N/O-N/M: not observed or not met
Formative Evaluation (pdf): This form is used for multiple observations and feedback conferences during the semester (practicum and student teaching/internship). It is designed to keep a cumulative record by course of each candidate's performance. Many observers mark all observations for a course on the same form to provide a composite record for the candidate and for the supervisor.
- During the observation some of the CPAS indicators (e.g., instructional strategies and management) can be marked when observed as the candidate is teaching.
- At the pre/post observation interview other indicators should be filled out as the evaluator looks at materials provided by the candidate (e.g., lesson plans, discipline plans, etc.).
- Over time some indicators can be observed and recorded as the candidate adapts to the school community and interacts with colleagues and students (e.g., ethics, collaboration, professional development).
Student Teaching /Internship Formative Evaluation and Rubric (pdf): This is a one-page observation form to be used during in-class observations throughout the semester. A checklist of the 34 indicators as well as space for observation notes about the particular lesson make it easier to see which areas the student teachers/interns are strong in and which areas they need to improve on. Keeping track of this information will make it much easier to fill out the final evaluation at the end of the experience.
Student Teaching/Internship - Final Evaluation and Rubric (pdf): At the conclusion of each student teaching and internship experience, a final evaluation is completed by the school mentor(s) and one by the university supervisor(s). The candidate views and signs all final evaluation forms. The BYU program supervisor/liasion also reviews and signs all final evaluation forms. All final evaluations will be completed in LiveText using the form tools.
The final evaluation form consists of the 10 INTASC Standards plus a narrative summary of the specific events and examples of demonstrated competencies. The final evaluation should represent the team's consensus of the level of the candidates' performance at the conclusion of the clinical experience. As personnel directors and/or principals value the final evaluations as they are hiring candidates, the summary statements must be well written and should reflect the cumulative record of observations and interactions with the candidate. The quality of the final evaluation strongly influences the candidate's opportunity for an employment interview.
- CPAS Forms are available to examine and download on this website. All final forms to be filled out will be found in LiveText for university supervisors, and a link will be avaiable to mentor teachers.
