New assistant principal uses Google Forms for Classroom Walkthrough.
The use of a Google Form for CWTs is not for building administrators that "Cant handle the truth." The results are live and in your face. As we developed our CWT instrument we thought that we would shine in many areas. The form does not lie. Be prepared to see the truth in the data.
For example checkout some of our data below.
When the data comes back to the spreadsheet Google will automatically create graphs. Follow the steps below to access the Summary of Responses.
- Open the associated spreadsheet that collects the form data
- Click Form
- Click Summary of Responses
As you can tell we need some work on technology integration. It is a slow process for my new school but we are on the right track. I am a new assistant principal that prides myself on my technology integration chops. The data does not lie. I am not having as much impact as I should.
Truth alert! Our English Language Arts teachers have the highest percentage of master's degrees and national board certification. As administrators we tend to visit the good teachers more to reaffirm our great impact on our teachers as the instructional leader.
In the link below I have shared our CWT instrument with you. Please take some time to evaluate it and modify as necessary. I have outlined some steps so anyone with a Google Account either through a school managed domain (@yourschool.org) or a Google managed (@gmail.com) domain can access.
