All teachers will be evaluated using the OTES
Model-Teacher Performance Standards

All administrators are credentialed evaluators


Review the processes, results, and challenges with both the

Reflect on the good, the bad, and the ugly
Review any changes as we transition to the "authentic"
evaluation tool for teachers this coming school year

November PD
• Mini Sessions on Formative Instructional Practices, Literacy
w/CC Anchor Standards in Reading and Writing, BFK and
Value Added, Teacher Evidence
o
February PD
• State training manual on Student Growth Measures
o
Quarterly Meetings used as check points
o
Conversations with evaluator

Pre-Pre Observation Conference

Self-Assessment Tool (Optional in the process, but discovered to be
a MUST DO!)

Professional Growth Plan (See example)
◦ Met with teachers (last two week of October) to review the process timeline
and elements (paperwork and documentation) and answer questions.
◦ Follow-up to In-service Day.
◦ Teacher Performance Goal (Goal 2)- Influenced by Self-Assessment Tool
and Ohio Teaching Standards
◦ Self-directed
◦ Statement of the goal and how it will be measured
◦ Student Achievement Goal (Goal 1)- Influenced by SLO (Use standard from
pre-assessment used to develop SLO)
◦ Specific standard and how it will be measured



Teacher Performance Evaluation Rubric (TPER)- (See
example)
◦ Evaluation begins with Proficient (“Rock solid teaching”)
◦ Video examples- see NIET Training Modules
◦ Examine key words and phrases embedded in rubric at each
level (Proficient, Accomplished and Developing)
Pre-Conference
◦ Teachers complete/submit responses using ohiotpes.com
◦ Face-to-face
Observation
◦ 30 minutes
◦ Script the lesson!

Post-Conference

Classroom Walkthroughs (2-5 per teacher)
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
Follows each observation
Specific questions relating to the lesson and the instructor
Relate to TPER
Area for Reinforcement/Refinement
Shared with the teacher
Opportunity for feedback
Used paper form and ohiotpes.com
The more often, the better!
Set schedule early and put it on the teachers. It’s the
teachers’ evaluation and their responsibility to provide
evidence/documentation relating to the TPER.

Summative Performance Rating Conference
Use measures of student growth effectively
in a high quality evaluation system




Make informed decisions on the right measures
Make informed decisions about the appropriate
weight of measures
Increase reliability and validity of selected
measures

Teachers completed the development, implementation and scoring
process

SLO timeline with specific due dates, calendar with expectations

Teachers created their SLO and chose their growth target

Implemented the SLO

Calculated the results

Three main types of targets used
◦ Whole group
◦ Tiered/grouped targets
◦ Individual Targets

Whole group target-one target for all students in SLO
◦ All students will score a 75% or better on the post assessment

Tiered/grouped target-range of targets for groups of
students
◦ Pre-assessment scores between 0 – 25 would be expected to
score between 25-50 on post assessment

Individual target-each student in the SLO receives a
target score
◦ Using a formula such as (100 – pretest)/2 + the pretest = growth

Data Analysis and Assessment Literacy
Data Analysis and Setting Growth Targets
◦ Data driven decisions – What data?
◦ Engage in transparent conversations around
student growth




Outliers, class size, averages, ranges
Identify trends, patterns, expectations for mastery
Gather other available data
Zoom-in and identify similarities and differences in
students
Build staff Assessment Literacy

Priority Standards

Appropriate assessments

Quality Assessment Design

Assessment Blue Print reflects instruction

Instructional Tasks move students to meet
standards



Conversations and Collaboration
Greater focus on Student Learning
Deeper reflection of the:
◦ teaching and learning process
◦ accountability of growth for all students
◦ role student growth plays in determining Educator
Effectiveness

Policy developed utilizing the template
provided by ODE
◦ Simple to allow for flexibility
◦ Change as we negotiate our contract

Further development by the district SLO
Evaluation Committee for SLO guidelines
•
•
What made us breathe a sigh of relief when it was
over
What went well/positive elements
•
•
Yes, some things were quite positive!
Suggestions/ways to use our internal feedback
and insight to feed forward

Roller Coaster of Emotions

WHEW that took some time!
◦ 5 hours per teacher per observation? *gulp*
◦ What do I give up?
◦ Walkthroughs?

Technology
◦ eTPES downfalls
 Other evaluations?
 Walkthrough data?
◦ Support for all levels of learners 

Roller Coaster of Emotions

Process was overall positive
◦ From Self-Assessments  Reflection
◦ Consensus: “It’s not so bad”!!

Technology based

Trial year! WOOHOOO

Focused purpose and common dialogue

Collaboration
◦ Holistic
◦ Rubric
◦ Criteria not a checklist
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
Administrator with associate school principals
Administrators with administrator
Administrators with teachers
Teachers with teachers
Utopia!


Self-Assessment – everyone 
Walkthrough data – form that collects data we need?
◦ Experimenting with Google Forms?
◦ Use to see trends

Non-instructional staff evaluations
◦ OSCES, ASCA, and OTES
◦ Input from staff

Opportunities for more alignment
◦ for professionals to align all goals; IPDP, OTES/OPES, Resident
Educator,
◦ to look for trends and align with PD,
◦ to group professionals with aligned goals as they work together to
improve their practice,
◦ to align ourselves as evaluators - do we truly calibrate? Can we better
align (with each other) by discussing our ratings and why, etc., etc.,
etc.
