Pre-service teachers (PSTs) are assessed at the graduate level of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APSTs) to ensure they are classroom-ready teachers. Their teaching performance is appraised through a professional experience report that is framed around these standards. Currently many mentor teachers respond to the standards as a matter of compliance. We see this as a lost opportunity when the standards being used as a tick-box exercise rather than a tool to develop competency. This project proposes an approach, which will support a shift to using the APSTs as a structure for providing meaningful feedback on PSTs developing practice.
