Published by J. Gregory McVerry on

A draft framework to coach college teachers and professors through effective feedback.

1
Ineffective Developing Effective Highly Effective
2
Planning
3
Designs lessons with meaningful goals and measurable outcomes Design choices and connections to goals appear haphazard or not clearly communicated to students. Design choices appear aligned to standards and measurable, though are inconsistent in their clarity. Design choices appear aligned to standards, measurable, and presented with clarity to students. Design choices and connections to standards and outcomes are discussed with students
4
Cooperates with department faculty in planning and aligns class with department or institutional goals Does not utilize feedback from the Department Does not seek our department advice or coplanning opportunities but willing to adjust design based on feedback Collaborative Design choices appear to reflect institutional standards for content, instructional practice, and assessment. Design choices directly address institutional standards for content, instructional approaches and assessment.
5
Utlizes research or subject matter experts in the design and development of course goals, objectives, and outcomes Does not utlize research and sources provided in syllabus or does not include research in self designed syllabus Uses the research and subject matter experts included in a provided rubric Enhances the class and provided research and subject matter with relevant material Encourages students to supplement the provided material and research with self selected credible sources
6
Establishes and explains clear expectations in class syllabus Class expectations not included or listed expectations not followed Class expectations included but not followed or assessed Syllabus list the expecations for class and a description of how expectations are assessed Routines built in the syllabus include ongoign self reflection on how class expectations are met
7
Course design provides a logical progression of content and skills while scaffolding student learning Syllabus lacks a schedule A class schedule is provided listing topics A class schedule connecting objectives to assessment is included and followed that progresses students towards course goals A class schedule connecting objectives to assessment is followed and allows students to reflect on their progresses towards course goals
8
Incorporates design principles to increase accessibility and accommodate individual learning differences Class syllabus or learning materials are hard to navigate, lack flexibility, and do not present content coherently Class syllabus or learning materials present content coherently but may not follow accessibility standards. Class syllabus or learning materials reflect design choices that account for all learners and provide multiple pathways for demonstrating knowledge growth Class syllabus or learning materials reflect design choices that account for all learners, present content through multiple represenations across modes while providing multiple pathways for demonstrating knowledge growth

Classroom Climate
11
Has clear expectations for student behaivor Students are often off-task or clear expectations of behaivor are not evident There are expected behaivors listed in the syllabi and infreqnuent instances of off task behaivor leading to the loss of instructional time Instructor supports students in meeting academic and behavioral expectations of the acadmey. Instructor build in opportunities for students to refect on their growth in meeting academic and behavioral expectations of the acadmey.
12
Respects student diversity Establishes a learning environment that disregards students’ cultural, social and/or developmental differences and/or does not address disrespectful behavior. Establishes a learning environment that is inconsistently respectful of students’ cultural, social and/or developmental differences Creates a learning environment that utlizes students’ cultural, social and/or developmental differences to improve learing tasks Learning activities encourage students to use their cultural, social and developmental diversity to improve the course to adress inequity in the world
13
Creates an environment of respect and rapport for all students The instructor does not promote positive social interactions among students Creates an environment where students are encouraged to engage in discourse through positive social interaction Fosters an environment where students proactively demonstrate positive social interactions Fosters an environment where students proactively demonstrate positive social interactions to effect real world change
14
Instruction
15
Communicates learning outcomes and criteria for success Does not communitcate critera to students Includes observable and measurable criteria in the syllabi Communicates observable and measurable criteria for student success and relates back to class goals. Creates tasks and routines that encoruage for students to be involved in developing or interpreting criteria for student success.
16
Uses instructional strategies that engage students in constructing new knowledge Instructor relies soley on basic activities and rote memorization as tools for knowledge growth . Instructor sometimes engages students in activities that require complex skills that could lead to knowledge gains Teacher creates learning experiences that allow for multiple perspectives and correct responses and enable students to acquire complex knowledge and skills. Learning experiences lead to interactions between the students and the instructor that focus on content while offering opprtunities for high quality feedback and refelctive growth
17
Balances content delivery and active student learning Instructor relies primarily on direct instruction and rarely uses oany collaborative learning activities that have students activeley enage with content. Instructor relies primarily on direct instruction and sometimes uses collaborative learning activities that have students activeley enage with content. Instructor balances direct instruction, reflective practices and productive peer interactions by matching modality of delivery to objective Mixes in direct instruction, reflective practices and productive peer interactions that reflect practices of domain experts.
18
Uses questioning and discussion techniques to enhance student learning Teacher uses instructional techniques
that do not allow most students to
actively participate in discussions.
Teachers uses a mimimal number of questions and question techniques usually focused on single affirmative responses from students Teacher uses questions and delivers feedback connected to the stated learnign gaols while also involving students in the conversation Students routinely ask questions and
make comments that reveal deep engagement with content.
19
Enhances instruction and extends learning opportunities with effective use of technology No evidence of effective technology use Use of technology enhances learning goals Use of technology enhances learning goals while creating assets and learning spaces available for students at all times Technology is used to enhance instruction through feedback delivery, additional scaffolds to learners, or tools that enhance engagement
20
Confirms content with relevant subject matter experts, research, or faculty peers. Makes multiple content errors while teaching that remain unaddressed. Makes no content errors while teaching Instructor makes explicit connections to research or subjetc matter experts while inviting students to explain the content to their classmates Encourages students to question the content accuracy of peers, texts, and the instructor providing clear explanations that extend student thinking.
21
Assessment
22
Provides timely and constructive feedback Feedback is untimely, missing, or unrelated to stated learning goals Feedback is timely actionable and driven by the learning goals of the lesson Students recieve a variety of feedback that is timely actionable and driven by the learning goals of the lesson from a variety of sources. Instructors involve students in the delivery of feedback from a variety of sources.that is timely actionable and driven by the learning goals of the lesson
23
Monitors and adjusts instruction based on student performance No evidence of adjusting instruction based on student performance Adds additiional instructional material based on student performace There is evidence of adjusting the class schedule, tasks, or course outcomes based on student performance data Routines for course revision based on learner feedback are included in the syllabus
24
Utilizes forms of assessment that are appropriate to content, learning goals, and outcomes Uses limited assessment data that may not be connected to the stated learnig goals. Uses a variety of assessments strategies that elicit evidence of kowledge growth towards the stated objectives Uses a variety or assessment strategies that promotes student self assessment and progress monitoring Promotes student self and peer assessment that leads to specific and actionabale feedback around writing goals.
