Substitute teachers are individuals who are hired to serve as a substitute or a second teacher to a class. Most often, substitute teachers are on-the-job trainees or interns and fresh graduates looking professional experiences in the field of teaching without the need to receive salary payments or allowances from the institution they are teaching in. And due to this, substitute teachers are periodically evaluated by both the institution and the teachers in charge of them. The evaluations will be recorded in a document known as substitute teacher evaluation forms.

What Is a Substitute Teacher Evaluation Form?

A substitute teacher evaluation form is a type of document which allows an evaluator to record the details of his observations and his evaluations to the performance of a substitute teacher. The form will be used by educational institutions to determine the substitute teacher’s readiness to become an official teacher or yet to be ranked and have a chance of grabbing a legal license to teach.

Additionally, the date when the substitute teacher was observed along with the starting and end time of the observation, the name of the administrator conducting the evaluation, the school where the evaluation was held, and the date when the form was completed will also be stated in the form.

Substitute Teacher Evaluation – Incident Report – This form will only be considered as an incident report if there is a particular uneventful situation caused by the actions of the substitute teacher. On the other hand, if the main intent of the evaluator is to simply state his evaluations to a substitute teacher who performed well, then there is no need for an incident report to be made along with the submission of the evaluation form. Three types of evaluations will be documented in this type of form wherein the first would be the required observations to be made by the evaluator followed by the optional observations and the administrative recommendations. Comments can also be incorporated into the form to allow the teacher and other involved parties to know details or additional information about the evaluation itself.
