During internship, assessment and evaluation of professional growth will be continuous.
Interns are expected to continue to collect and analyze evidence of professional growth using the Professional Growth Portfolio (PGP).
Evidence of progress toward achieving program goals and outcomes, along with developing professional competencies, will be regularly discussed with the cooperating teacher and during visits with the internship facilitator.
On a weekly or bi-weekly basis, interns are expected to identify and discuss with cooperating teachers one or more particular program goals/outcomes for focused attention and should identify some necessary action(s) to provide evidence of growth.
Because feedback and reflection are required for professional development, pre- and post-conferencing are very important and jot notes from these professional conversations can be included in the PGP.
When possible, a cluster of interns in a school can provide feedback for one another during peer coaching opportunities. Jot notes or more formal written feedback from these opportunities can also be included as evidence in the PGP.
