LABORATORY EVALUATION FACTORS
As with classroom evaluation factors, you must be familiar with the evaluation factors used
to evaluate laboratory instruction. Some of these factors are very similar to those used in the
classroom. Others are specific to laboratory instruction. Safety is frequently of greater concern
in the laboratory than in the classroom.
You must ensure that safety is stressed and safety
procedures adhered to. The laboratory checklist is used to evaluate the instructor, the students,
and the facilities.
The Laboratory Instructor Evaluation Checklist contains the following factors concerning
Work Spaces/stations Ready For Class
Prior to the start of the laboratory session you should ensure that:
n Each work station is fully equipped.
9 Equipment, tools and material are ready for use.
- Instructional materials are available and in usable condition.
n The laboratory area is clean and free of safety hazards.
Explain The Objectives
n Ensure students understand the objectives and all safety related considerations.
n Relate the objectives to the job sheet(s).
n Tell the students if the laboratory session is a test.
n In addition to explaining the objectives, you may want to provide partially finished or
completed projects for the students to examine.
