Assess educators with a teacher evaluation form

Simplify and optimize the process of assessing teachers with a digital checklist. Teacher evaluation forms give insight into the way educators are perceived by students

What is a teacher evaluation form?

Teacher evaluation forms are tools used to review the performance of teachers in their classes. They’re a way to give feedback to teachers, as well as for principals to learn more about the teachers at their school.

3 elements of good teacher evaluation forms

The more thorough your teacher evaluation form, the better your analysis of the teacher will be. That’s why you should follow these tips:

Evaluate both sides

Your assessment of teachers should focus not just on the teacher’s behavior and methods, but also on the students’ reactions. Make sure to ask:

  • Do students understand what their teacher is explaining?
  • Are students engaged in classes?
  • What is the student’s opinion of their teacher’s style?

Student feedback is an essential takeaway from lesson observations. A good way to obtain this feedback is with a teacher evaluation form for students. That gives you another point of view on the teacher’s performance.

Talk with the teacher

After the evaluation process is over, schedule a feedback session with the teacher you’ve evaluated. Work through the assessment checklist step-by-step and offer suggestions for improvement.

Don’t forget to acknowledge successes as well, to show that you recognize your employee’s effort.

Be a mentor

Especially for new teachers, it’s extremely helpful to have a mentor who supports them and helps improve their lesson quality. As their evaluator, be a mentor and help them succeed in their role. An important aspect of mentoring is to use the results of your teacher evaluation form and draw up an improvement plan.

Benefits of teacher evaluations

Regular teacher evaluations benefit everyone involved, from teachers themselves to principals and students. Some of the ways they benefit include:

  • Regular feedback sessions improve overall teacher performance
  • Having feedback documented helps you make decisions about promotions and pay raises, and also improves your hiring process
  • Giving students the opportunity to advocate for teaching styles which work for them
  • Empowering teachers to improve
  • Increasing accountability among teachers, which leads to better and more attentive work

Using workflow automation software for teacher evaluation forms

Make teacher evaluations more convenient with Lumiform’s workflow automation software. The desktop and mobile app affords you a lot of flexibility when preparing and conducting teacher assessments.

Use the custom form builder to create teacher evaluation forms specifically relevant to the conditions in your school. As these forms are purely digital, it’s easy to collect and give feedback from anywhere using the mobile app.

The benefits of workflow automation go beyond making evaluations faster and include:

  • Automatically documenting the results of all your evaluations, so you can easily keep a record of performance and track improvements
  • Making it easy to establish evaluation schedules, since you can assign assessments in a single click
  • Eliminating the need for storage and time-consuming duplication of evaluation forms, since you can reuse every checklist you create as many times as needed
  • Automatic analytics that give you a visual representation of teacher evaluation results, so you can easily identify which feedback is consistent and which is an outlier as well as improve your approach to education
