Self‐Assessment on Teaching Practice
This self‐report inventory
is designed to assist you in reflecting upon your current
1
professional practices. Gaining an accurate picture of your current practices can help
you set appropriate and reasonable professional improvement goals and can help you
decide upon which professional learning opportunities to engage in to help you
improve your practice. This self‐assessment is not a validated instrument; it is only
intended to assist you in considering different areas of your professional practice.
Directions: You can complete this inventory by yourself. Realize, however, that you are
not always the best judge of your practices. Some educators are inappropriately critical
of their work while others aren’t critical enough. To provide greater accuracy, consider
working with a colleague and/or using the feedback you have received from
administrators, coaches, colleagues, mentors, parents and students to help inform your
answers.
Step 1:
For each statement, rate whether you engage in the behavior(s) listed in the statement in
your teaching practice.
Rating scale: Routinely = 4, Frequently = 3, Occasionally = 2, Rarely = 1
For example, if you frequently engage in a behavior, you would circle a “3” next to that
statement.
Step 2: Add up the number of circled numbers in each column.
Step 3: Add up the numbers in each column to create a total for the Learner and
Learning; Content Knowledge and Skills; Instructional Practices; and Professional
Responsibility
Step 4: Graph the total for each of the four areas on the graph on page 6 to create a
profile of your practice in each of the four areas.
Using the Results: Consider exploring the standard, learning progression, and
resources in the area for which you had the lowest total. You’ll find the Core Teaching
Standard indicator referenced the parenthesis after each statement to guide your work.
