Interventions: If a student does not meet the program expectations (e.g., academic performance,
dispositions) faculty will alert the student by way of an intervention. Interventions can be requested at any time by the Clinical Teacher, Building Coordinator, School
Administrator, University Supervisor or Field Experience Coordinator. Important Note: Two interventions may result in dismissal from the program.
Dispositions: Dispositions of teacher candidates are evaluated continually throughout the teacher
education program. Candidates are expected to demonstrate the professional dispositions
identified in the Professional Behaviors and Dispositions Assessment (PBDA). These
professional attitudes, values, and beliefs are seen in the candidates’ verbal and
nonverbal interactions with students, other educators, parents, colleagues, and members
of the community. Teacher candidates are assessed formally throughout the program
on these dispositions using the professional dispositions rubric. Please review these
Georgia Intern Keys:Intern Keys is completed on candidates throughout the program. This instrument is very similar
to the Georgia Teacher Evaluation instrument for certified teachers. It is also used
as one component of the midterm and final evaluations for student teaching. This assessment
is completed by the University Supervisor, the Clinical Teacher, and the student teacher
(self-evaluation) based on observations conducted throughout the semester. Please
review these expectations carefully.
