© 2016 Elsevier Ltd. This article examines the review and revision process of the Model of Appropriate Practice (MAP), a locally developed pre-service teacher candidate assessment rubric based on Danielson's Framework for Teaching. The purpose was to confirm the quality of the rubric. As such, factor analysis was used to examine internal consistency and construct validity. The analysis yielded a 16-item rubric that showed strong estimates of reliability and validity across four teaching domains-planning and preparation, the classroom environment, instruction, and professional responsibilities. The importance of this process for improving teaching and teacher preparation is discussed.
