In 2008-09,
approximately
11,700 teachers
were rated
satisfactory, while
only about 70
received an
unsatisfactory
rating.
These results
provide little useful
information about
the variation in the
effectiveness of our
teaching staff.

Proficient
In addition to meeting the
requirements for Proficient…
Proficient is the expected level of
performance.

demonstrates extensive
content and pedagogical
knowledge, regularly
enriches the curriculum,
and guides others in
enriching the curriculum.
The teacher consistently
demonstrates an
understanding of the
curriculum, subject

Observations
Brief Observations
• Four during the year
• Minimum of 10 minutes
each
• Rate and comment only
on the standards you
observe
• Specific requirements for
Brief Observations will be
shared at a later date
Formative Assessments
• Two during the year
• Minimum of 30 minutes
each
• One announced and one
unannounced
• Standards that are
observed will be rated on
the rubric
• May request additional
documentation to support
ratings
• Comments can include
areas for strength and
growth for each standard
Why Use Student
Perception Surveys?
Why use student surveys?
• Past reliance on observations as the sole
source for teacher evaluation
• Observations are narrow in scope
• Observations fail to capture the complexity
of teaching
• Evaluations of teachers must include
multiple data sources
• Surveys offer teachers an opportunity to
reflect on perceptions about their practice
Surveys of Instructional Practice
• Three developmentally different surveys


Grades 3-5; 6-8; 9-12
Reviewed for content validity and readability (Flesch-Kincaid
Readability Scale)
• Survey questions aligned with TAPS standards•
•
•
•
3 – Instructional Strategies
4 – Differentiated Instruction
7 – Positive Learning Environment
8 - Academically Challenging Environment
• Administered by certified specialist
• Surveys are anonymous; no comment fields
• Survey results must be considered for the summative
assessment rating.
