What is a Performance Evaluation (PE)?

The ITAP Performance Evaluation (PE) is a mini-teaching demonstration on a topic that is basic to the ITA’s field, and it should be something that their department would expect any new ITA to be able to explain to an undergraduate student or someone who is unfamiliar with the field. 
During the PE there are two evaluators. Both evaluators will observe and rate language production skills, as well as act as  “students” and rate presentation and interaction skills. The “student” evaluators will take notes, ask questions, and interact with the ITA as if they were in an actual classroom situation by asking questions throughout the PE.

The presentations are video-recorded for ITAP certification records and consultation needs. The ITA may also request a copy of the PE for their own review.
