Charlotte Danielson releases Framework for Teaching Evaluation Instrument, 2013 Edition

12/9/2012 12:00:00 AM

In response to the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and based on feedback from educators, Charlotte Danielson has updated her Framework for Teaching (FFT) Evaluation Instrument with the 2013 Edition.  The 2013 Edition incorporates the instructional implications of CCSS and includes language refinements to further improve scoring accuracy when using the Framework for evaluations and observations.

The enhancements explicitly address the CCSS themes of academic language, argumentation and student strategies. The enhancements also focus on curriculum and assessment and provide observers of classroom practice with examples they can use to conduct evaluations across academic disciplines. 

The language refinements throughout the 2013 Edition help classroom observers more accurately conduct evaluations and observations and were made in the interest of clarity, consistency and ease of use.  

Teachscape will update its Teachscape Focus observation training and assessment system to include the observable components of the 2013 Edition. The 2013 Edition will also be available in the Teachscape Reflect observation and evaluation system.
