What does NEE mean for Students?
Greater engagement in teaching and learning
 Tighter connections between classroom experience and
district/building goals
 Consistent expectations for instructional quality
 Teachers informed by research, measured using researchbased standards/indicators

NEE

“NEE has provided our administrative team with a
program, training, and support to have the best
conversations and feedback with teachers in my 23 years
in education.”

Randy Luebbert, Principal Warsaw High School
NEE

“I have never seen teachers and administrators working
so hard on substantive issues that will improve the
learning experience. We examined several options, the
state model, building our own, and adopting NEE. It was
a hard decision and I know we made the very best one
we could for our district."

Dr. Chris Neale, Superintendent Gasconade R-I School
District
NEE

“Lifelong learning and instructional effectiveness are
priorities of the NEE evaluation system. The Knob Noster
R-VIII School District’s steadfast commitment to provide
high quality learning opportunities for students and staff
remains a district priority. The core value to ‘be the best
we can be for our students’ continues to serve as the
foundation that drives our reputation of academic
excellence.”

Dr. Kristee Lorenz, Assistant Superintendent Knob Noster
R-VIII School District
NEE

“When I go into a classroom to observe learning, I have
confidence that my evaluation is accurate based on my
training and the rubrics provided by NEE. While meeting
with the teachers about their evaluation, ways of
improving are not only discussed between the teacher
and principal, but resources are provided by NEE on how
to improve in that specific indicator.”

Classroom Observation

Moves away from once in a while feedback to every
teacher, every year, 6-8 times a year, unannounced short
drop-ins, and focused on specific indicators.
Professional Development Plan (PDP)

Individualized data driven professional development
focused of personal growth areas and supported by an
online library of professional growth modules.
Unit of Instruction (UOI)

Demonstrates the ability to select essential learning
outcomes and develop a research based curricular unit
around an approved curriculum.
Student Survey


The system has the ability to generate a student survey
which can be administered to students to measure
perceptual data on teacher effectiveness of the priority
teaching indicators.
For students 4th grade and above with a minimum sample
size of 20 students or more.
Student Performance

Like everyone else, we’re waiting for policy makers and
regulators to define exactly what this means but are
ready to implement when necessary.
What about Student Performance?
NEE does not set or use “cut off” scores, percentage
weighting, etc.
 Student Evidence data will reflect/demonstrate growth
 Data will reflect District-level decisions
 Data will come to NEE from DESE
 Student Evidence measurement is a federal and state
compliance requirement
 Uncertain federal/state timeline for this data

What about the privacy of teacher data?





Password protected
Secure and separate servers
All data belongs to the district
No access to NEE-held data by any other school, district,
or outside group, for any reason
No NEE transfer of data to Mo-DESE or to U.S. D.o.E.
What about the research?
Among others:
 Marzano and Hattie for Classroom Observations
 Danielson for Professional Development
 Wiggins for Unit of Instruction
 METS (Gates) for Student Survey
 Kim Marshall of Boston College
 Laura Gough of Vanderbilt
Classroom Observations

More frequent
 8-10 times per year

Shorter
 About ten minutes on average

More consistent
 Rubric-based
 Research-based

More immediate/focused feedback

Focused on measuring a small number of indicators
Units of Instruction





Connecting written curriculum to actual teaching
Supporting instructional design that promotes growth in
student learning
Encouraging teachers to change instruction in response to
data/information
One UoI per year
Evidences of current practice
Web-based convenience; no pen-and-paper
Template-organized; rubric-evaluated
Professional Development Plans
Seeking teacher improvement that helps students grow
 A sequence of activities that support personal goals
 Increasing alignment between personal growth goals and
district/building goals
 Informed by data
 Supporting a yearlong conversation about professional
growth
 Template-organized; rubric evaluated

Student Surveys
Measures student perceptions of effective teaching
indicators
 Highest and lowest scores removed
 Valid and reliable
 Research-confirmed (95%+ reliable)
 Provides additional source for multiple-measure accuracy
of summative evaluation
 Administered online

There’s a reason …



We’ve grown from 22, to 33, to over 180 districts in three
years
Our mission is increased student achievement through
improved teacher professional development
We a teacher growth system, not a “got’cha” system!

What Separates Us From Other Models?
Web-based tool
 Supported by the research and staff resources of the
University of Missouri
 Immediate feedback and support for teachers
 Field support staff across the state solely dedicated to
NEE

What Separates Us From Other Models?




Reliable results by achieving Inter-rater Reliability through
qualifying evaluators to use the tool within a very high
degree of accuracy, so that results are consistent.
Embedded, aligned, specific Professional Development
resources unique to each teacher’s level of performance,
and these can be accessed online
Rubrics that distinguish between whether human
behavior (teaching) or artifacts (documents) are being
measured
Includes the option of an online Student Survey tool
What Separates Us from Other Models


Summative Performance report places teacher
performance in context of the standards, and peer
performance in the same building, in the same district,
and in the NEE districts (currently approximately 25,000
teachers) statewide
NEE measures the same Missouri Teaching Standards and
Indicators as DESE’s tool, however NEE measures 38
indicators
Coaching … not catching!

Designed to grow teachers and evaluators through
reliable feedback, professional development, and
conversations about what really matters in Missouri
schools … learning!
