University of Nebraska Kearney — Nebraskan Student Union


The Teaching Pyramid Observation Tool (TPOT™) reliability workshop prepares participants in the use of the instrument to gather information on preschool teachers’ implementation of Pyramid Model practices. This is an intensive workshop that requires prerequisite knowledge, preparation, and participation in the entire workshop.
Participants who successfully complete the workshop and meet reliability standards will receive a certificate indicating reliability status and can serve as reliability partners to other observers. Successful completion will indicate that the TPOT™ workshop participant is reliable with the instrument development team.

2-DAY TRAINING — Breakfast and lunch provided

DAY 1: Presenters will provide training on the TPOT™ instrument, key definitions, and scoring guidance. Participants practice scoring indicators.

DAY 2: Presenters will continue TPOT™ training. Participants will view an entire TPOT™ observation/interview on video (2.5 hours) and score the TPOT™ to check reliability with the Gold Standard and score. Please note: Most participants will complete all activities before 5 p.m.
