Report
Most current teacher evaluations provide little
information that can be used to give teachers
the training and tools they need to be effective;
better identify and meet individual professional
development needs; provide targeted
intervention to help struggling teachers; or
reward the accomplishments of effective
teachers.

system

Student Data
 Choosing methods of student data including student
growth and achievement in models that best fit the
evaluation design principles

Non-Tested Areas
 Addressing the challenge of measuring performance in
grades and subjects for which there are no consistent,
statewide, student growth measures
School Measures for Counselors

Identifying multiple measures of
teacher performance.
◦ Identifying multiple artifacts to support
student performance, outside of the onehalf that is tied to the state achievement
test in the tested areas
◦ Identifying appropriate artifacts in the
non-tested areas where an external
assessment does not exist


Integrating multiple measures to
inform both formative and summative
expectations of the evaluation system.
Increasing the consistency of raters of
teacher performance.



Involve a diverse representation of
stakeholders to compose rules and
regulations
Provide opportunities at conferences and
other professional development for
administrators and teachers from pilots to
speak about the process – what they learned,
questions they still have
Total transparency


Make sure you report any allegations to DHS
that fall under the mandatory reporting law.
There have been instances that
administrators have been disciplined for not
reporting, i.e., license on probation, license
suspended, etc.
Caution teachers about making any reference
to a student’s health condition or meds in
front of other students
