Don't Let Evaluation Douse the Flame: Using Current tools to Stoke the Fire

Some background…

School Culture





Language, Literacy and Culture Education, Doctoral Candidate,



  • To put these ideas on teacher evaluation to practical use!

  • The goal is to leave here with a plan for implementation

I know who the best and worst teachers are in my school without a formal evaluation.

  • Other teachers, students and parents also know.

How much time do you spend on teacher evaluation?

Tools for evaluation

Don’t forget: You can copy-paste this slide into other presentations, and move or resize the poll.

An example…

New questions/real answers

  • What do you like about this place?

  • What about this school needs improvement?

Almost everyone consistently said the SAME THING!

A Shift in Focus: from teacher observation to student learning

  • If I were a student in this classroom, what would I think was important for me to learn today, and how well would I believe that I had to learn it?

  • If I did everything the teacher asked me to do during this lesson, what would I actually learn, and what kind of evidence would produce that I had learned it?

What evidence of learning did students exhibit during the lesson?

What did I see?

What is it evidence of?

What does it mean?

Where are the gaps in myunderstanding?

What do I need to learn more about?


  • Add these questions to your system of evaluation

  • How can you incorporate the Student Viewpoint and Principal as Learner?(Formally? Informally? )

  • How can the tool work for you?

Share your ideas

Helpful Feedback


  • Confusing

  • I was confused about who was assigned each role in the collaborative groups


  • You should have included some Essential Questions in your unit plan

  • What questions can you use to guide your unit?


  • Many students were bored in class.

  • I counted ongoing inattentive behaviors in 12 of the 25 students

  • What would you like me to look for and perhaps count?

Tangible and transparent

  • Good work

  • Your use of wait time allowed for the ENL students to participate more fully in class.

Timely; Ongoing, &Consistent

Prompts like the following promote frequent reflection:

  • What worked in this lesson? How do I know?

  • What would I do the same or differently if I could re-teach this lesson? Why?

  • What root cause might be prompting or perpetuating this student behavior?

  • What do I believe about how students learn? How does this belief influence my instruction?

  • What data do I need to make an informed decision about this problem?

  • Is this the most efficient way to accomplish this task?

Teacher Self Evaluation

How toadapt tools to be used for teacher reflection as well?



  • Researchers found that having different raters score observations of teachers’ practice may be a key component for the observations systems: Raters’ first perception of a teacher’s practice tended to influence how they scored additional lessons taught by that same teacher. (Measures of Effective Teaching Study,Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, 2013)

  • Research suggests that teachers should be observed by more than one person to ensure that scores are reliable. ( Ed week 2013Sawchuk)
