Using the Lab Course Observation Instrument (LCOI)

In using this instrument to evaluate the student, please understand that these
students are working toward becoming exemplary teachers. The rubric should be a
guide for you in scoring several areas of the student's teaching abilities. The
students
...are expected to apply this information in order to improve and/or modify
their lessons and teaching skills. Honest feedback is extremely important as we
encourage the students to grow into successful educators.
Please use the following key when scoring.
1— Emerging — becoming apparent, becoming known
2 — Developing — Growing, becoming more advanced .
3 — Proficient — Competent or skilled in doing something
4 — Exemplary — Desirable model, representing the best
Please feel free to write additional comments for any of the areas. The Education
Department used your assessment and comments to determine new ways of
supporting the growth of our students as future educators.
