This worksheet and rubric can be used to collect and score information about the fidelity of coaching so that this information can be used by coaches and other educators to continuously improve upon how coaching occurs. Fidelity in coaching should rely continuously upon the effective practices of observation, modeling, delivery of performance feedback, and use of alliance-building strategies. Furthermore, coaching should occur with sufficient frequency, ensure that teachers are engaged with the coaching session, and be of adequate duration and high quality.
