What are PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting
and Roster Verification?
What is PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting?
The Pennsylvania Value•
-Added Assessment System (PVAAS)
Teacher Specific Reporting estimates the effect of a teacher
’s
performance on the academic growth of a group of students.
The PVAAS reports are based on the Education Value•
-Added
Assessment System (EVAAS) methodology provided to
Pennsylvania (PA) by the SAS Institute Inc., SAS EVAAS for K•
-12
division.
• What is the purpose of PVAAS Teacher Specific
Reporting?
The purpose of PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting is three‐fold:
• provide a teacher specific growth measure to be used as part
of Pennsylvania’s Educator Effectiveness System;
• provide diagnostic feedback to teachers regarding their
influence on the academic growth of students;
• provide data for teachers and administrators to guide
discussions about a teacher’s influence on the academic
growth of groups of students.
Which teachers will receive PVAAS Teacher Specific
Reporting?
•
•
•
•
Teachers receiving PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting are permanent or temporary professional employees
who hold a valid PA teaching certificate and who have full or partial responsibility for content specific
instruction of assessed eligible content as measured by PA’s assessments (PSSA and/or Keystone exams).
This may include teachers other than those who are the teacher of record.
Pennsylvania defines the teacher of record as is a professional or temporary professional educator
assigned by a school entity as the primary instructor for a group of students. (Source: Highly Qualified
Teacher Guidelines on PDE website)
This currently includes PA certified teachers providing content-specific instruction in assessed eligible
content in subjects/courses/grades assessed by the PSSA and Keystone exams (with and without
accommodations).
This includes the grades/subjects/courses of PSSA reading and mathematics in grades four through eight;
PSSA science in grades four and eight; PSSA writing in grades five and eight; and Keystone content areas.
What does the term “roster verification” mean?
• Roster verification is a local LEA process by which teachers and
administrators document that teachers are linked accurately to students
for the correct tested grade/subject/course for the proportion of time
available to instruct each student.
• The goal is to provide PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting based on accurate
data. This will be accomplished via a PVAAS web‐based roster verification
system provided to LEAs by PDE. It is a secure, web‐based system with
double levels of authentication and login to ensure security of PVAAS
Teacher Specific Reporting. All changes to any roster for an individual
teacher are date and time‐stamped to reflect who made the edit and
when the edit occurred.
• Pilot PVAAS Roster Verification Training for Pilot
LEAs
•
Description: This 3 hour session (for PILOT LEAs ONLY) will provide a comprehensive overview of the PVAAS roster
verification process for LEAs participating in the SY12‐13 PVAAS roster verification pilot.
• Timelines and roles of teachers, principals, and district administrators in the PVAAS roster verification process will be
discussed. Participants will receive a LIVE guided review of the PVAAS roster verification web‐based system. A range of
resources and a plan for support during the PVAAS roster verification process will be shared. Time will be allotted to address
questions and to clarify details of the PVAAS pilot.
