A Test…
This is a mental exercise, don't write down your answers and
don't share them. This test be being proctored.
1.
Pick a number from 2 to 9. It can be 2, or it can
be 9, or any number in between.
2.
Take that number and multiply it by 9.
3
A Test…
3.
That should give you a two-digit number. Take
those two digits and add them together.
4.
Take the resulting number and subtract 5.
4
A Test…
5.
Take that number and correspond it to the
alphabet, numbering the letters: A=1, B=2, etc.
6.
Take your letter and think of a COUNTRY that
begins with that letter.
5
A Test…
7.
Take the last letter in the name of that country
and think of an ANIMAL.
8.
Now, take the last letter in the name of that
animal and think of a COLOR.

A Test…
But remember...
There are no
ORANGE
KANGAROOS in
DENMARK.

Importance of Each and Every Slide…
Each slide
represents an
EQUALLY
important
component of the
Tulsa Model
system and
process.
One missing
component can
derail the process.

Not a Test, but a Reality!
TLE is not a quick fix elixir or an off-the-shelf
remedy.
TLE is “roll up your sleeves” hard work that takes
commitment, expenditure of energy and superb
time management.
TLE requires instructional leadership at efficacy
levels.

Tulsa Model Evaluation System
Description
Observation+ Process
The Observation scores reflect the Evaluator's intentional
study of the teacher’s classroom performance plus an
assessment of other factors specified in the Rubric up
to a given point in time.
Observations and the Observation Form serve as the
precursors (foundations) to the Evaluation.
Is guided by the rubric.
• A minimum of two (2) observations are required
before every evaluation.

More indicators?…It’s a fine balance.
“Each additional [indicator] included in an
instrument adds costs….training time and
scoring time for observers.”
“Adding an indicator risks lowering the quality
of data on all other indicators if observers have
already reached their ability to keep track.”
“When observers are overtaxed by…tracking
many different competencies at once, their
powers of discernment decline.”
MET Policy and Practice Brief
January 2012
Page 28
“…it may be useful to economize by combining
or dropping competencies that commonly
occur together, that prove to be too difficult to
measure reliably, or that are unrelated to
other outcomes.”

The RUBRIC… hands-on
Establishing a Common Language…
“Domains” are the Performance Measures taken from SB
2033.
“Dimensions” are the TITLES of the specific components that
establish the parameters of the Domain, e.g., the branches off
the main truck of a tree.
“Indicators” are those observable and measurable
characteristics and practices that are correlated to student
performance success.
18
Rubric Structure and Design
Dimensions and Indicators are defined into five
(5) Levels of Performance:
1
2
3
4
5
Ineffective
Needs
Improvement
Effective
Highly Effective
Superior
>>>
Efficacy in
Effectiveness

NOT in Evidence

“N/A” – Not Applicable or “N/O” – Not Observed can be used at the
determination of the Evaluator.
Ranking language taken from SB 2033.
19
The Rubric, Observations and the
Evaluation Form
The Rubric is the foundational base for
ranking determinations following
Observations (within the all inclusive
context of the school year) and ranking
decisions that are transferred to the
Evaluation Form.

A Teacher Rubric in Detail
Like a dictionary, the rubric’s descriptions provide definitional
clarity as to each level of effectiveness.
Plan for instructional
strategies that encourage
the development of
performance skills. Ensures
materials and equipment
are ready at the start of the
lesson / activity.

Indicator: Teacher clearly defines expected behavior.
3 - Effective
Establishes and posts standards of conduct and implements with

Ensures that students are engaged and clear as to the expectations of the
classroom with few reminders given.
Monitors the behavior of students during whole-class, small group and
seat work activities and during transitions between instructional activities.
Stops inappropriate behavior promptly and consistently with an
appropriate voice level / word choice.

3 - Effective
Engages most students in active learning experiences 80 percent of the
class time.
Uses questioning strategies throughout the lesson, scaffolding to at least
the mid level of Bloom's taxonomy. Provides wait time for some student
response and does random checking to ensure the involvement of all
learners.
Engages students by incorporating their general skills and interests into the
lesson.

The RUBRIC… hands-on
In your review of the assigned Indicators (within Dimension titles that reside
under Domains) what did you learn:
• about the structure of the Rubric?
• the focus of the Dimensions?
• the details of the Indicators?
Be prepared to SHARE one, specific Indicator:
• talk about the increase in “expectations” from Ineffective to Superior, e.g.,
progressive, abrupt, ability to achieve the highest rankings.
• talk about the narrative components that reside within a specific ranking, e.g.,
the EFFECTIVE ranking, e.g., how do the parts equal the whole?
• talk about what you would expect to see in teacher behavior (or evidence) and
student behavior (or evidence).
29
What We Have Learned…
1. Every slide provides an important piece to
the TLE mosaic.
2. The Rubric provides definitional clarity of
effectiveness within a structure of Domains,
Dimensions and Indicators.
3. The Rubric is the “foundation” for all that
follows.
4. There are 5 numeric rankings, plus N/O and
N/A.
