What is new in CIS
October 3rd Release: Beyond minimum requirements, districts and evaluators have a great deal of flexibility with respect to the frequency
and length of observations this year, as well at the way observations are scored. The enhancements released in early October were
designed to accommodate flexibility in classroom observations.
1.
Flexibility in observations
and site visits
Redesigned to reduce time spent entering data and to provide increased flexibility:

Single screen design for entering observations and site visits

Fewer required fields

New attachment function will allow evaluators to attach documents to observations and site visits

Flexible scoring options
o Ability to enter non-scored observations
o Ability to rate any number of components of the Compass or alternative rubrics
2.
Evaluator assignments
More flexible evaluator assignment process:

Allows multiple evaluators for a single employee

Combined observer and evaluator user roles

Future plans for CIS
Fall 2013 Release (November): This fall, we will continue to enhance CIS to support the needs of educators and evaluators.
1.
Student achievement
expected trend data
shared by school
2. Viewing/sharing of
previous year data
Expected VAM score reports will be shared with each school, including the scores for their currently
enrolled students. These reports will be accessible by Principals and designated School Leaders.
3.
In accordance with the PES reporting guidelines in Bulletin 130, CIS will allow districts to report
grievances, and will allow for invalidations and reversals of previous year evaluations based on grievance
results.
Grievances tracked and
addressed in previous year
evaluations
Employees will be able to view their own observations, SLTs, and evaluations from the previous school
year, as will their new school leaders (if they have transferred to a new site). The process for viewing
previous year data will also be streamlined for all system users.
Spring 2013 Release: Next spring, we will address the roster verification and evaluation processes.
1.
Improved roster
verification process
2. Updated final evaluation
screens
Roster verification improvements will be applied to course code assignments, verification process, and
invalidations.
Schools and districts will experience more flexibility in determining final evaluation ratings.

Scoring options
Louisiana Believes
•
If an evaluator chooses to enter componentspecific ratings, the evaluator may decide
whether to use these ratings to calculate the
overall observation/site visit rating.
•
The evaluator may choose to calculate an overall
rating for the observation/site visit by averaging
the component-specific ratings or entering their
own overall observation rating.
•
The evaluator may choose not to rate the
observation/site visit at all (either at the
component-level or the overall-level).
