Exit Performance Description (EPD) Coversheet
The final evaluation of the intern’s performance is formally written as an Exit Performance Description (EPD). Both the field instructor and the mentor teacher are responsible for producing individual EPDs representing the intern’s performance for the year based on the Program Standards. An EPD is not a letter of recommendation. It is an evaluative document designed to assess an intern’s strengths and weaknesses as a prospective teacher. The EPD is the documentation that supports the final grade in TE 502. The intern may choose to include this document in his/her portfolio or credential materials. Please contact the appropriate program secretary if you need access to this form.
