Performance Assessment For Initial Teacher Programs

The documents that can be accessed through the links on this page provide a description of the system we use at Montclair State University to assess the performance of candidates in our initial teacher programs. The system is presented here for public view. We particularly encourage current and prospective students in these programs to become familiar with our performance assessment system.

Besides an overview of the system, you will also find the performance assessments themselves -- the tasks being assessed, the rubrics that delineate the criteria by which candidate performance is assessed, and the rating sheets used to record the assessment results.
