How do I pass my Teaching Practicum?

Your faculty advisor will determine if your practicum is successful based on written reports from associate teachers, reflections, lesson plans, and other applicable documents such as classroom observation reports.

There are three possible grades that you can achieve after you complete a placement; these grades include:

  • Pass (P) – You, the teacher candidate, will receive a Pass for EDUC 4398 and EDUC 4498 and, upon graduation, we will recommend you to the OCT for certification
  • Incomplete (INC) – You, the teacher candidate, have not yet displayed the level of competence, independence, and/or professionalism in teaching required for a Pass in ECUC 4398 and EDUC 4498. In such cases, you will be placed on review

Or

  • You are unable to complete a placement and have provided appropriate, official medical documentation or a letter documenting extenuating circumstances (e.g. compassionate grounds) to the Professional Experiences Office
  • Fail (F) –  You, the teacher candidate, have not exhibited the competence, independence, and/or professionalism in teaching that is necessary to receive credit for EDUC 4398 or EDUC 4498 and will not be recommended to OCT for teacher certification

Note: Two compromised placements means that you will be removed from the program
