Sample Rubric for Classroom Observation

Share This Post

Classroom observations complement other sources of information about teaching, including the faculty member’s own reflections and end-of-course evaluations. The following rubric was developed using the guidelines for peer reviews of teaching on the Dean of the College website, the example of a Faculty- specific rubric, and the University of Kansas teaching rubric. Departments and programs should review the rubric and, where this seems advisable, modify it to address discipline or program-specific considerations. Early in the term of a classroom observation, the chair or program director should consult with the faculty member about a date for the observation, identify the peer reviewer, and select the materials to submit as part of the review.
