This is the final post of a four post series addressing each T-TESS domain and its relationship and correlations to PowerWalks.
T-TESS Domain 4: Professional Practices and Responsibilities The elements in this domain occur outside of the delivery of instruction in the classroom. Hence, they are outside the scope of a formative classroom observation tool. See the chart below. The areas highlighted with the color YELLOW represent areas of potential and conditional correlation.
PowerWalks Alignment and Correlation to Domain 4 The elements of Domain 4 are generally outside the scope of a 3-5 minute formative classroom observation. However there are three exceptions.
1. The teacher has set goals based on improving pedagogy. As a teacher gets better at the best practice addressed in the six PowerWalks modules, the appraiser is provided subjective evidence of improved pedagogy.
2. The teacher has set goals based on improving student performance. The change in teacher practice is a leading indicator of improved student performance. As a teacher gets better at the best practice addressed in the six PowerWalks modules, the appraiser is provided subjective evidence that improved student performance is forthcoming.
3. The campus has provided training on instructional practices and programs. As a teacher gets better at the best practice addressed in the six PowerWalks modules, the appraiser is provided subjective evidence that the teacher is attempting to implement the elements of provided professional development.
