When the evaluation time ends, the teacher is given a strip, which shows that they have been evaluated and contains the code of the evaluator, in order to make any claim in case the teacher understands it necessary since the classes taught are evaluated taking into account 25 indicators on the teacher’s planning of their lessons and a similar one to assess content management.

The person responsible for observing the process does not share any information with the evaluated, but fills out a response sheet that also contains several questions related to the indicators, which must then be submitted to the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI), the Institute Dominican Educational Quality Evaluation and Research (IDEICE), responsible for the process.

For the classroom observation and assessment file, the observer arrives at the center, duly identified, meets with the director of the educational center and a commission from the agencies responsible for the evaluations and assembles a work schedule.
