How the SATAL Program Works
Behind the scenes...
The Assessment begins...
Instructors invite SATAL students into their classroom.

The type of assessment completed depends on the type of information the instructor is looking for.
2 or more SATAL students visit the instructors classroom and
collect feedback

from students
about what they think is working in the class and what they would like to see done differently.
The Assessment ends...
SATAL students collaborate to create an objective report with the feedback they collected.

After it has been reviewed by the coordinator, report is sent to the instructor who can then decide what actions to take.

Chea Award
Provide instructors with feedback that will help them gain a better understanding of what is happening in their classroom.
We can probably throw in a quick scene about FIP right before the timeline. I'm not going to edit the timeline since it seems tedious. Adriana also wants us to include a small note saying that candidates need to do an observation as part of the hiring process too. What do you guys think? (Mike)
