Danielson 2007 Rubric
In this framework, the complex activity of teaching is divided into 22 components clustered into the following 4 domains of teaching responsibility.
How it works:
Each component defines a distinct aspect of a domain; two to five elements describe a specific feature of a component. For example, Domain 2, The Classroom Environment, contains five components. Component 2a is Creating an Environment of Respect and Rapport, which consists of two elements: “Teacher interaction with students” and “Student interactions with other students.”
Domain One: Planning and Preparation
Covers demonstrating knowledge of content and pedagogy, knowledge of students, setting instructional outcomes, knowledge of resources, designing coherent instruction and student assessments.
Domain Two: The Classroom Environment
Includes creating an environment of respect and rapport, establishing a culture for learning, managing classroom procedures, managing student behavior, and organizing the physical space.
Domain Three: Instruction
Reviews communicating with students, using questioning and discussion techniques, engaging students, using assessment in instruction, and demonstrating flexibility and responsiveness.
Domain Four: Professional Responsibilities
Reflecting on teaching, maintaining accurate records, communicating with families, participating in a professional community, growing and developing professionally, and showing professionalism.
More on Danielson:
These components apply in some manner to all settings, as do the other components. But although teachers at all levels and in all subjects establish rapport with and convey respect for their students, they do so in different ways.

Standard For Success is the industry-standard in education software and services.
“As a principal, the Customer Service and Support at Standard For Success has been outstanding to work with. When emailing a question to the team, the Customer Service and Support Team are prompt and immediate in their reply. They email clear solutions and clarifications to help answer my questions within an hour or less. In addition, the team is quickly willing to make adaptations or offer suggestions to meet specific needs. The excellent work and care provided by the Customer Service and Support Team at Standard for Success has allowed me to provide immediate and effective feedback to my staff.”
“The District chose Standard for Success for several reasons. One was the ease of use, but what really impressed us was the customer service that we have experienced since Day 1 when we reached out to Standard for Success for information. Our typical time to bring in a new vendor is three months. However, because Standard for Success was so responsive to every question or request we were able to complete the contract and hold training with all of our supervisors in less than six weeks. Everyone, including the CEO, responded to emails and calls within 30 minutes or less. I know that a company with that type of high customer service takes pride in their product and will work to ensure that we have a product that meets our needs.”
“Of all the tools we evaluated, Standard For Success stood out because it was developed by educators and can make the process of teacher evaluation and collection of data manageable. They have been willing to listen to input and implemented ideas from the field. Their product supports our mission of supporting the leaders in our schools.”
