Each Purdue teacher candidate goes through a rigorous selection process during the application for student teaching placement. We continue to monitor performance throughout this capstone experience in terms of classroom skills, content knowledge, and dispositions toward the profession.
This section contains information and links on the disposition assessment process, the edTPA requirement, and who to contact for midterm and final evaluation training and forms.
We have high expectations for professional behavior, teaching skills, and knowledge throughout the capstone semester.
Here you’ll find information about the policies and procedures that guide the student teaching experience: co-teaching, criminal background checks, professionalism agreement, and our policy on remediation.
Each participant in the student teaching triad plays an important role in developing our next generation of outstanding educators. Here are the links to specific documents for classroom teachers, university supervisors, and our teacher candidates.
