Tk20 for University Supervisors
 University Supervisors will evaluate each student teacher in a Tk20
“Field Experience Binder” which includes:
 Five Form A’s. Form A is based on the Texas PDAS.
 The fifth one will likely go unused, more on this in a moment.
 One Form D. Form D is Dispositions, PPR and Technology Standards.
 We will look the Form A and Form D and go over details.
 Evaluation of Mentor Teacher. This was previously done on Sam Web.
 This is under development and will be more comprehensive than what
was done previously.
 Later in the semester we will send out instructions.

 The Field Experience Binder will vary by student; its contents will
depend on:

Studies will have a new additional assessment called a Focused Content

placements. Her evaluations will include:
 Four Form A’s (University Supervisor)
 Three Form D’s (University Supervisor and one each from her Mentor Teachers)
