Teacher Work Sample (TWS)

Successful teacher candidates support learning by designing a Teacher Work Sample that employs a range of strategies and builds on each student’s strengths, needs, and prior experiences. Through this performance assessment, teacher candidates provide credible evidence of their ability to facilitate learning by meeting the following TWS standards:

• The teacher uses information about the learning-teaching context and student individual differences to set learning goals and plan instruction and assessment.

• The teacher sets significant, challenging, varied, and appropriate learning goals.

• The teacher uses multiple assessment modes and approaches aligned with learning goals to assess student learning before, during, and after instruction.

• The teacher designs instruction for specific learning goals, student characteristics and needs, and learning contexts.

• The teacher uses an understanding of individual and group motivation and behavior, creating a safe learning environment.

• The teacher uses regular and systematic evaluations of student learning to make instructional decisions.

• The teacher uses assessment data to profile student learning and communicate information about student progress and achievement.

• The teacher reflects on his or her instruction and student learning in order to improve teaching practice.
