Dispositions Evaluation

The Dispositions Form has been developed to evaluate professional conduct and attitudes of Teacher Candidates enrolled in a student teaching field experience through the Washburn University Education Department. The Dispositions Form is to be completed by the Cooperating Teacher and University Supervisor at the end of each student teaching field experience (and at midterm of a 16-week placement), and in conjunction with the Professional Dispositions Form for Teacher Candidates [TCSEF] and formal Observational Feedback Forms provide performance evaluation data of the student teaching field experience/s. The TCSEF and Disposition Form will be e-mailed to the Cooperating Teacher and University Supervisor, and should be completed within one week after the end of a field experience placement.
