What Are Effective Reflection Practices for Documentation Logs?

TPES|ESPES Reflections for Documentation Log: Guidance on Writing Effective Reflections for Performance Evidence

Reflecting on selected artifacts is crucial for showcasing performance in the TPES and ESPES evaluation systems. This guide provides educators with prompts to articulate how artifacts demonstrate proficiency in specific standards such as Professional Knowledge, Instructional Planning, and Program Management. It encourages thoughtful consideration of the artifact’s impact on professional practice and student learning. By engaging in this reflection process, educators can highlight unseen aspects of their teaching and justify the value of their chosen artifacts, ultimately supporting their professional growth and development.


This document provides an example of a teacher artifact reflection focused on Standard 5: Learning Environment. It includes photographs of the classroom environment, an explanation of why the artifact was chosen, how it supports the Learning Environment standard, and what the teacher learned about their professional practice. It serves as a model for teachers to reflect on their practices and demonstrate their effectiveness in creating a conducive learning environment.
