Supervising teachers are not required to provide an overall assessment score for the preservice teacher; this is determined
by higher education institutions as part of their assessment processes.
APST Graduate Career Stage descriptors have been grouped to assist the supervising teacher’s observation and assessment
of professional experience. All sections are weighted evenly. Some descriptors are dependent on context so may not be
assessable for all preservice teachers during the final summative professional experience. A single piece of evidence may
address multiple descriptors, including those in several sections of this form.
Higher education institutions are encouraged to use this document as a basis for non-summative professional experience
reporting templates used at earlier professional experience placements.
