UTOP Instruments

UTOP Instruments


The UTOP can be used to evaluate quality of instruction and provide meaningful feedback for improvement at any level of education, in a variety of settings. It is composed of 25 (Humanities version) or 26 (Mathematics/Science version) items rated on a 5-point Likert scale (1 to 5), with an NA (Not Applicable) rating option for a few items where sufficient information may not be accessible during the observation session.

The UTOP instrument is designed for use over multiple observations of a teacher’s practices over the course of time—several weeks, at minimum—thereby reducing the impact of a low score on any other single indicator.
