What is DRSTOS-R?
- DRSTOS-R is a framework and protocol for assessing student teachers.
- It is based on the work of Charlotte Danielson in an ASCD publication called Enhancing Teacher Practice.
How is it Administered?
- The DRSTOS-R is administered summatively, taking into consideration evidence of student teachers' professional development throughout the semester.
- Raters for the DRSTOS-R must participate in training and meet a standard of inter-rater reliability.
- The protocol consists of 21 items, assessing student teachers' professional practice across four domains:
- Planning and Preparation
- Classroom Environment
- Professional Responsibilities
- For each item, student teachers are ranked on a four-point proficiency scale ranging from "Not Yet Proficient" to "Proficient." Notation of evidence supporting these ratings is encouraged.
What is the purpose?
- The DRSTOS-R protocol is part of an evaluation conducted by CRTL to meet its ongoing accreditation obligations and to inform development of NYU's teacher education program.
- Use of the protocol by both the supervisors and cooperating teachers helps facilitate a shared understanding of the expectations and goals of the student teaching experience.
