Walk-Through Resources

 

Walk-Through and Observation Form

 

This print-friendly form can be used for recording walk-through observations and/or scripting notes for formal observations. It includes the dimensions and domains along the side as a convenient reminder to assist with evidence collection.

Walk-Through Form Creation Process

 

This process enables campus leaders to involve teachers or groups of staff in the process of creating a walk-through form specific to the prioritized needs of the campus. Participants will identify the T-TESS dimensions that are most critical to address individual, grade level/departments, and campus needs as a whole. Appraisers can choose to focus on key areas of the rubric for walks-through during each observation window rather than attempting to identify evidence for every dimension.

Automated Walk-Through System

 

Kelly Fitzgerald of Leander ISD created this instructional video demonstrating how to quickly and painlessly use Google forms and autoCrat to automate completion and sharing of walk-through observations with teachers. This integrated process is useful for districts using Google apps.
