OBSERVATION PROTOCOLS 2 Running head: OBSERVATION PROTOCOLS 2 Observation Protocols Student's Name Institution Affiliation Date OBSERVATION PROTOCOL Yale Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning (2020) defines observation protocols as one of the tools that are published in the event of assessing teaching practices that have been used in the field of science, technology, engineering, math, as well as in other disciplines. Yale Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning asserts that in observation protocols, the teachings carried out within the classroom are keenly witnessed by an observer either physically or by viewing a videotape of instructions. Amid observation, the observer fills in the protocol, which comprises of the questions that inquire whether a particular teaching and learning styles has been used. There is also the use of a Likert-scale to identify the degree in which the behavior was recognized in the classroom and to give room for unrestricted feedback. Since observation protocols are commonly created to evaluate specific approaches, instructors must therefore be precise to adopt one for the particular assessment consideration. However, instructors can always finish up their teaching inventories to acquire a general practice of appraisal since such inventories are utilized in more self-assessing contemplative ways. The following are examples of the observation protocols. The Classroom Observation Protocol for Undergraduate STEM (COPUS) Michael Smith et al, (2017) , in their work ''The Classroom Observation Protocol for Undergraduate STEM (COPUS): A New Instrument to Characterize University STEM Classroom Practices'' claims classroom instructors have applied essential

methods in STEM courses such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to enhance student learning in various learning institutions (Michael Smith et al, (2017)). Due to the developing interests in acquiring information on the dimensions and prevalence of teaching methods, the COPUS, also known as the Classroom Observation Protocol for undergraduate, has been formulated to help in escalating the process. This observation protocol enables the STEM faculty to dependently feature ways in which faculties and learners spend their time in class. Generalized Observation & Reflection Protocol (GORP The Center for Educational Effectiveness, Office of Undergraduate Education, (2018), has the following explanation for Generalized Observation & Reflection Protocol; they affirm that TGORP is a web-based system for conduction classroom observations with the use of protocols that can be customized and defined by user in the process of evaluating the data collected in the middle of observation. The observer is able to record data by transparent, mobile- friendly coherence which can be customized and designed in mobile as well as desktop devices. GORP also enables one to develop a personal protocol from scratch, by adjusting an existing one other than the compilation of community developed observation protocols. Each institution has an exclusive domain

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
