  • Old GLEs were “skill specific;” new standards focus on breadth and depth of content knowledge
  • Old assessments were in grades 3-10; new assessments are grades 3-11
  • Old assessments were “fixed form;” new assessments are computer-adaptive
  • Old testing window was 3 days; new assessment window is 3-4 weeks

new educator evaluation regulations
New Educator Evaluation Regulations
  • The Facts:
  • New regulations adopted in 2012
  • Districts, in cooperation with educators, will select appropriate measures and set targets for student growth at the beginning of each school year or instructional period.
  • Beginning in the 2015‐2016 school year, teachers and administrators will be evaluated using student learning data. Evaluation should identify educators’ strengths and weaknesses, and provide a guide to improve instruction and to grow professionally.
  • Beginning in the 2015‐2016 school year, Alaska’s teachers and administrators will be held accountable for their students’ growth. This qualitative data will provide a more complete picture of an educator’s efficacy.
educator accountability
Educator Accountability:
  • Districts, in cooperation with educators, will select appropriate measures and set targets for student growth at the beginning of each school year or instructional period.  
  • At the end of the year or instructional period, the degree to which an educator’s students have reached their targets will be factored into the teacher’s and administrator’s evaluations.  
  • Assign one of four performance levels‐exemplary, proficient, basic, or unsatisfactory‐to each standard.  
  • Assign an overall rating, for the purpose of state reporting, that uses the same four performance levels.  
student learning data
Student learning data
  • Student learning data is defined as an objective, empirical, valid measurement of a student’s growth in knowledge, understanding, or skill in a subject area.The growth must have occurred during the time the student was taught the subject by a teacher. The measurement or assessment must be:
  • Based on verifiable data or information that has been recorded or preserved;
  • Able to be repeated with the same expected results, and;
  • Independent of the point of view or interpretation of the person giving the assessment.
  • Statewide assessments will be used as one of the measures of student learning, when appropriate statewide assessments are available.  
  • Districts, administrators, and teachers will identify existing assessments or develop appropriate measures for “non‐tested” or “non‐assessed” subjects. All courses being offered should have goals of achievement for students to attain. Districts must work with educators to set growth targets for students in all subjects, including “non‐tested” or “non‐assessed” areas.
the role of student learning data
The role of Student learning data:
  • In the 2015‐2016 and 2016‐2017 school years, 20% of a teacher and administrator’s evaluation will be tied to student learning.
  • During the 2017‐2018 school year, it will be 35%
  • In 2018‐2019 school year, it will top out at 50%
time to talk1
Time to talk:
  • Positive aspects of the new educator accountability system?
  • Aspects of the system that scare the daylights out of you?
  • What professional development and/or support do you need to prepare for the new accountability system?
  • What are some possible assessments /performance tasks applicable to your grade level and content area.
