Intern Observation and Formative Assessment Form – AYA Mathematics
Step 1: Preparing for the Observation
1. Intern sends an electronic copy of the lesson plan to the supervisor and mentor at least 24 hours prior to the
observation. Supervisor stores lesson plan document on OFS-supplied USB drive.
2. Observer may request intern to provide a hard copy of the plan for use during the observation.
Step 2: Completing the Observation Form
1. Take notes during observation and complete Observation Form afterwards with scores and comments. If you
wish to provide the intern with immediate feedback (optional), you may choose to leave a copy of your notes
with the intern.
2. If available, use licensure-specific Observation Form. If a licensure-specific form is unavailable, use the generic
form.
3. Choose any one of 3 formats: 1) Word 97-03 fill-in form; 2) a Word 2007 fill-in form; or 3)unprotected Word
2007 document. Fill-in forms feature automatic calculations but do not allow spell-check. Use unprotected
forms carefully if you wish to use spell check.
4. Fill in all heading information. Include at least 3 comments in each domain. Use “Specific Comments” to
summarize the lesson and identify 2-4 opportunities for further growth.
5. With fill-in forms, calculate averages by right-clicking each highlighted field (Mac computers use Ctrl-Click) and
selecting “Update field.” If formulas do not calculate correctly, calculate scores manually and enter averages in
the fill-in fields.
Step 3: Completing the Observation
1. Intern completes Follow-Up Form and submits to observer within two days of the observation.
2. E-mail electronic copy of the Observation Form to intern after receiving the Follow-up Form but within one week
of the observation. Copy supervisor and mentor teacher so everyone has electronic copies of the form.
3. Record averages on Field Experience Record and Evaluation Form (hard copy on NCR paper) and obtain intern’s
initials at the next available opportunity.
4. Supervisor stores electronic copies of the following documents in the student’s folder on the OFS-supplied USB
drive:
