A preservice teacher is entitled to receive feedback after each of his/her observations. Evaluation conferences between the student, cooperating teacher and university supervisor afford the student opportunities to practice self-evaluation as well as respond to the supervisor's or cooperating teacher's assessment of his/her progress.
In the areas in which the teacher candidate needs to improve, he/she is to be given suggestions for doing so in as specific terms as possible. A time schedule in which to implement the improvement(s) is recommended also. For purposes of documentation, such suggestions are to be made in writing using the Field Experience Observation Narrative form.
