Narrative Observation Form
Both the cooperating teacher and the university supervisor are encouraged to
be honest and objective in completing evaluations of the the preservice student.
Joint conferences among the three members of the triad (cooperating teacher,
preservice student and university supervisor) are recommended.
A preservice field experience student is entitled to receive feedback after
each of his/her observations. Evaluation conferences 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 preservice field experience student need 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 Narrative Observation form, as
well as discussed, and copies retained by the preservice teacher, the
cooperating teacher and the supervisor.
