Evaluating Teachers
Home > Evaluation Process > Post-Observation


     Now that the administrator has documented the activities that occurred [see
Observation], the administrator can now begin the write-up process. The administrator will reflect on the lesson via the notes that were taken and develop a list of teacher strengths and weaknesses.

     The write-up will look similar to that offered by BPSS (n.d.).

     Furthermore, the administrator will include suggestions for growth. These suggestions are vital for helping the teacher overcome obstacles and reaching his or her teaching potential [demonstrated by the diagram found within Why Evaluate?].

     Let it be known that the final write-up is not the true goal of the process. The write-up is only a tool for helping teachers grow. It instills growth by providing both an honest and fair feedback method for the teacher (Hopkins, 2005).
