teacher evaluation components
Teacher Evaluation Components

Student OutcomesIndicators

  • Student growth and development (45%)
  • Whole School Student

Learning Indicator (5%)

Teacher Practice Indicators

  • Observation of teacher performance and practice (40%)
  • Parent Feedback (10%)

TEVAL - Pg. 3


Process and Timeline:

The annual evaluation process between the teacher and an evaluator (principal or designee) is anchored in three conferences, which guide the process at the beginning, middle and end of the year.

TEVAL - Pg. 4


Goal Setting and Planning:

Completed by November 15th

Orientation on Process: Discussion of roles and responsibilities to be scheduled as a 3-hour training occurring during the Professional Development prior to the opening of the 2014-2015 school year.

Teacher Reflection and Goal Setting: Teacher examines student data, survey results, school-wide goal, CCT Rubric, or other district approved rubric, to draft a proposed performance and practice focus area, a parent feedback goal, and two SLOs for the school year.

Goal Setting Conference: The evaluator and the teacher meet to discuss the Teacher’s proposed focus area, goals and objectives in order to arrive at mutual agreement about them.

TEVAL - Pg. 4

mid year check in completed by february 15th
Mid Year Check-In: Completed by February 15th
  • Reflection and Preparation: The teacher and evaluator collect and reflect on relevant material to date about the teacher’s practice and student learning in preparation for the check-in.
  • Mid-Year Conference: The evaluator and the teacher complete at least one mid-year check-in conference during which they review evidence related to the teacher practice focus area and progress towards the SLOs and other goals.

calculating individual teacher evaluation rating for teacher practice component
Calculating Individual Teacher Evaluation Rating for Teacher Practice Component

Evaluator collects evidence on teacher practice through observations and interactions.

Using the CCT Rubric, ratings are determined by analyzing the evidence from observations.

TEVAL - Pg. 15 - 17

component 2 parent feedback 10

Component #2Parent Feedback 10%

Parent Feedback

TEVAL - Pg. 17

parent feedback process
Parent Feedback Process

A parent survey will be conducted at the district/school level.

One school-level goal based on the district survey feedback will be determined by the principal.

Each teacher identifies one personal goalrelated to the parent engagement goal and sets improvement targets.

Evaluator and teacher measure progress on growth targets.

Evaluator determines a teacher’s summative rating based on the four performance levels.

TEVAL - Pg. 17 - 18

examples of parent feedback goals

Survey data showed 63% of parents at Main Street School don’t feel that communication at the school is consistent.

  • School Level Goal: Improve home-school communication at Main Street School.
  • Individual Goal: Teacher will create monthly newsletters that will highlight student work, class news, and upcoming events (10 total). Teacher will distribute information to parents through paper copies and email.
Examples of Parent Feedback Goals
component 3 student growth and development 45

Component #3Student Growth and Development – 45%

Student Growth and Development

TEVAL - Pg. 19

student learning objectives slos

Based on teacher’s assignment, students and context.

  • Carefully planned, long-term academic objectives.
  • Reflect high, yet attainable, expectations for learning or improvement and aim for mastery of content or skill development.
  • Measured by Indicators of Academic Growth and Development (IAGDs), which include specific assessments/measures of progress and targets for student mastery or progress.
Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)

TEVAL - Pg. 19

slo process

SLO Phase 1:

Review data

SLO Phase 2:

Set goals for student learning

SLO Phase 3:

Monitor student progress

SLO Phase 4:


SLO Process

The SLO process will support teachers in using a planning cycle that will be familiar to most educators:

  • Developing SLOs is a process rather than a single event.
  • The purpose is to craft SLOs that serve as a reference point throughout the year as teachers document their students’ progress toward achieving the IAGD targets.
  • Teachers may develop them through consultation with colleagues in the same grade level or teaching the same subject.
  • The final determination of SLOs and IAGDs is made through mutual agreement between the teacher and his/her evaluator.

TEVAL - Pg. 20

guiding questions for student learning objectives slo
Guiding Questions for Student Learning Objectives (SLO)

What are the objectives for student learning?

What is the rationale for choosing these objectives?

How will we know when objectives are met?

what makes a good student learning objective slo

Includes broad goal statements about the knowledge and skills students should demonstrate as a result of instruction;

  • Addresses the central purpose of the teacher’s assignment;
  • Takes into account baseline data on student performance from a number of data sources;
  • Pertains to a large proportion of a teacher’s students, including specific target groups;
  • Reflects significant growth of content mastery or skill development; and
  • Reflects attainable, but ambitious goals for student learning.
What Makes a Good Student Learning Objective? (SLO)

TEVAL - Pg. 21

objectives will include

A broad goal (SLO) for student learning that addresses a central purpose;

  • A rationale that explains why this is an important area of improvement; and
  • At least one IAGD which is the specific evidence, with a quantitative target, that will demonstrate whether the objective was met. ( Multiple IAGDs may be used)
Objectives Will Include
student learning objective slo 1
Student Learning Objective (SLO 1)
  • SLO 1 is a learning objective based on the school-wide goal that supports the school-wide need.
  • This goal identifies core ideas, domains, knowledge and skills students are expected to acquire for which baseline data indicate a need.
example of slo 1 grade 4


  • All students will improve their reading comprehension of informational text, as measured by their ability to use explicitly stated information to answer questions about the text, identify the general topic of a text, and make inferences and/or draw conclusions about central ideas that are relative to the text. (CCSS, Reading for Informational Text, Key Ideas and Details)


  • Our school reading data (Language Arts) suggests that reading comprehension is an area of relative weakness among our students. A closer analysis of school-wide data indicates that comprehension of informational text is an issue. Given the emphasis on reading of information text in the CCSS, it was agreed that this is an important area of focus right now.

* Other examples on p. 22 of the Teacher Evaluation & Support Plan.

Example of SLO 1Grade 4
student learning objective slo 2
Student Learning Objective (SLO 2)
  • SLO 2 is a learning objective that will address a central purpose of the teacher’s assignment and it should pertain to a meaningful proportion of his/her students, related to data;
  • Each SLO should reflect high expectations for student learning and should be aligned to relevant state, national (e.g., common core), or district standards for the grade level or course; and
  • SLO 2 is measured by both standardized and non-standardized indicators.
slo and iagd

SLO (Student Learning Objective)

  • Teacher will develop SLO and teacher and evaluator will agree upon the SLO using all student information available.

IAGD (Indicators of Academic Growth and Development)

  • Teacher and evaluator will also agree upon Indicators of Academic Growth and Development (IAGD) that incorporate specific evidence and have quantitative targets that demonstrate whether the SLO was met.
what are indicators of academic growth and achievement iagds

Are based on results of assessments, which may include standardized and non-standardized measures;

  • May require consultation with colleagues with more expertise to determine appropriate measures and targets;
  • Indicator statements for the teacher evaluation should follow SMART Goal language: Specific/Strategic, Measurable, Aligned/Attainable, Results-Oriented and Time-Bound; and
  • Multiple IAGDs may be used.
What are Indicators of Academic Growth and Achievement? (IAGDs)

TEVAL - Pg. 22

consider these components when writing an iagd

Learning Content: What does the baseline data indicate you need to focus on with your students?

  • Population: What students will this objective address?
  • Interval of Instructional Time: How long is the interval of instruction (i.e., weeks, quarters, semesters, school year)?
  • Assessment: How are you going to measure student growth?
  • Expected Gain or Growth: How much are your students going to grow?
Consider These Components When Writing an IAGD:

Examples of SLO 2 and IAGDsNon-Standardized SLOs and IAGDs

See additional SLO’s with corresponding IAGD’s on pg. 25 of the TEVAL Plan

rating teacher performance on slos as measured by iagds

Evaluators will review the evidence and the teacher’s self-assessment and assign one of four ratings to each SLO: Exceeded (4 points), Met (3 points), Partially Met (2 points), or Did Not Meet (1 point). These ratings are defined as follows:
