Individuals who aspire to be administrators have some guidelines which they need to conform to for the institutions to be successful. The expectations in the schools vary with the regions in which they are located. Observations have to be conducted at constant times to make the individuals familiar with them. The frequency is then evaluated to make the work easier for the administrators. The administrators are required to have different samples fro they regions they aspire to work. The practices and policies in the regions have visualized the institutions to record tremendous success. Evaluation protocols are needed by the administrators to make their work easier. The private and public institutions have to be included in the research process. An electronic portfolio has been utilized to demonstrate the information needed.
The classroom observation protocol has been used in the University education to control the practices that are being conducted in the institution. Instructors have been instrumental in ensuring that the learners acquire the best knowledge from the institution. The teaching practices that the instructors use has enabled the learners’ to acquire the best knowledge from the institutions. The courses involving engineering, technology, mathematics, and the college sciences have enable the students to be fully equipped. An increase has been observed among individuals in terms of the teaching practices employed. The institution-wide and the departmental- wide areas have been the areas of collecting the information. A new protocol has been enacted where the undergraduate students are observed keenly. The courses mentioned above have been used during the observation. The training period for the exercise is normally one and half hours. The time spent by the students and the faculty is critically analyzed during the observation. The protocol is the presented to the institution where an explanation has to be given on how it varies from the classroom environment where the information has been collected. The process of validating and formulating the protocol is described fully. Change is needed in the institutions and the process of enacting the change has to be guided by the protocol such that the institutions and the individuals benefit from it.
The educators, researchers, and scholars have been introduced to current research through the classroom observation instruments. The teaching practices developed have been effective for many individuals. The classrooms have noted to embrace diversity in linguistics and cultural reforms. New instruments have been discussed I the chapters where examples have been provided on how they have been used in similar environments. Reform models in the schools have been enhanced by the protocol. This research is systematic having been utilized in the past three decades. The early information mainly focused on quantifiable research. The events observed are finally recorded. Techniques and procedures have been utilized to show how they are effective in terms of teaching. The systematic classroom observation has been effective since individuals interact well hence being the most widely used. The observers do not need song inferences as the observations are purely interactive.
Reforms in the mathematics and science areas have been measured through this protocol. Twenty-two collaborative have been funded to improve this department. The National Science Foundation has been phenomenal in terms of coming up with the results. Allocation of resources in this sector has been remarkable. These reforms have been difficult to enact since measuring and defining the reforms have been difficult. The data of two years was used to demonstrate these reforms.
An argument is healthy for any teaching protocol. The quality of the teachers used in teaching are considered Decisions based on development of an individual’s profession are considered. An interpretive argument is placed in context in that evidences are accounted. Data from valid classrooms are analyzed. The observation scores, general studies, and knowledge f the teachers are considered.
The Reformed Teaching Observation has been vital in preparing teachers to provide quality education to the students. Reforms in teaching have been effective over the years. The concepts which elaborate the theoretical bit have been used by the teachers. The instrument has been successful in the elementary institutions since the teachers measure what they have taught the learners effectively.
The sheltered instruction observation protocol has been vital between the researchers and the teachers. The teachers have been observed to develop in their profession having utilized the document. There is need to cover the provided curriculum by the teachers. The LEP students are the main beneficiaries are instructions are provided for the teacher to cover. The researchers participating in the exercise have continuously shared their experiences with the teachers which has steered the education level to growth. Learning has been enhanced as the teachers have expanded their knowledge.
State standards that contain a common core, century skills and the response to interventions have made this protocol successful. There is need for the individuals to pay attention to the instructions given on the exercise. The delivery demands and design of the lessons have been efficient in helping the students and the teachers go through the programs efficiently. Twelve chapters have been arranged well to enable the researchers to find the background of what they are looking for easily.
The Reformed Teaching Observation Protocol have enabled the science an mathematics teachings to be assessed. The standards and recommendations of teaching of the subjects have been considered when enacting the protocol. These recommendations are usually developed by the professionals in the discipline.
The Classroom Observation Protocol has been key in evaluating the instructions provided to an institution. The projects related to the sciences courses have been evaluated effectively. The level of teaching of the disciplines are evaluated through the program. The protocol has been reliable and valid in the education. Strategic data is normally considered when coming up with the reforms hence numeric data is also developed.
Uteach Observation Protocol is mandatory I many institutions as the teachers teaching science and mathematics courses are evaluated through the program. Further, there is recruitment of the teachers in the field due to an acute shortage. The program covers the secondary level of education hence the quality teachers are needed in the program.
