Assessments: Find Your Starting Point

Just as you conduct assessments in the classroom to ascertain where your students are thriving and where they need added support, it’s equally important to step back and evaluate where you are on your path to becoming a master teacher.

Mastery isn’t measured by years served, books read or workshops attended. We believe mastery is about applying the principles of effective instruction to your teaching. That’s why we created our Mastery Self-Assessment.

Keep in mind that there are no right or wrong answers. Your answers should speak to where you are today and not where you want to be in the future.

Track your answers using the Mastery Self-Assessment Scoring Sheet. After you finish, you can use the scoring sheet to give yourself two scores — an overall one and individual scores for each of the mastery principles.

You’ll need to login or register for a Mindsteps membership in order to access the Self-Assessment and Scoring Sheets. Access is free but membership is required.

Your feedback helps to shape our strategies. After you complete the assessment, we would love to hear your thoughts on it.
