Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model When these strategies are used, here is the typical effect on raising student achievement (percentile gain corrected): Note Taking 17% Building Vocabulary 20% Practice 14% Effort and Recognition 14% Setting Goals/Objectives 25% Graphic Organizers 13% Student Discussion/Chunking 17% Homework 15% Summarizing 19% 20% Tracking Student Progress and Using Scoring Scales 34% Identifying Similarities and Differences Interactive Games 20% Nonlinguistic Representations 17% Overview of Marzano Causal Teacher Evaluation Model Generic Scale for Domain 1 Innovating 4 Applying 3 Developing 2 New strategies are created to meet needs of specific students or class as a whole in order for the desired effect to be evident in all students. Strategy is used and monitored to see if it has desired effect with the majority of students. Strategy is used correctly but the majority of students are not monitored for the desired effect of the strategy. Beginning 1 Strategy is used but pieces or components are missing. Not Using 0 Strategy is called for, but not used.
