Presentation Transcript

Teacher Effectiveness Day 5


  • Parking

  • Breaks and lunch

  • Emergencies

Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)

Setting the Stage for Student Learning Objectives and Evidence-Based Performance Evaluation

Day 5 Objectives

  • To investigate more deeply into the guidance document for SLOs through:

    • Analysis of examples

    • Exploration of rules

    • Writing a sample SLO

  • To connect SLOs with classroom observations

5 District Decisions by 6/30/2012

  • Assess and identify priorities and academic needs.

  • Identify who will have State-provided growth measures and who must have SLOs as “comparable growth measures.”

  • Determine District rules for how specific SLOs will get set.

  • Establish expectations for scoring SLOs and for determining teacher ratings for the growth component.

  • Determine District-wide processes for setting, reviewing, and assessing SLOs in schools.

Who Needs an SLO?

Who has SLOs and how will SLOs be set?

Step 1: Determine District-wide Priorities and Academic Needs

  • Assess and identify District-wide priorities and academic needs. Start with commitments and focus areas in District strategic plans.

  • Decide how prescriptive the District will be and where decisions will be made by principals, or principals with teachers.

From NY DOE engageny.org Introduction to SLO Deck

Step 2: Identify who will have State-provided growth measures and who must have SLOs as “comparable growth measures”.

50 – 100% Students Covered by State-Provided Growth Measures

0 – 49% Students Covered by

State-Provided Growth Measures

These teachers will receive a Growth Score from the State

(20-25 evaluation points)

These teachers MUST have SLOs

(20 evaluation points)

E.g., 4-8 ELA, Math,

Common Branch teachers

E.g., Many high school teachers, K-3 teachers, teachers with mix of sections with/without State-provided growth measures (e.g., two 7th grade math classes and three science classes)

Core Subjects: ELA, Math, SS, Science

Activity 1:

  • Locate the form “ Teachers with State Provided Growth Measures and Teachers needing SLOs”

  • Identify the groups of teachers that fall into each category

  • Assume, for the time being, that all of the groups have a single assignment (Do not consider at this time teachers who have multiple “preps.”

Activity 2: Determining Types of Assessments Needed for SLO

  • Locate handout “ Determining Types of Assessments Needed for SLO”

  • List the groups from Activity 1 on the left hand side and identify the types of assessment needed for the SLO

    • State assessment

    • Third party assessment

    • Regional/district/school/classroom assessment

Activity 3: Creating a District Assessment Chart

  • Locate “District Assessment Chart”

  • Identify the assessments available in the district other than state assessments by teacher assignment

  • I suggest that this be done by individual districts

    • Note that some 3rd party assessments can not be used for “growth” (the 1st 20%)

SLO Exceptional Cases

After each case, provide an example and identify the assessment that would be used

Case 1: Less than 50% of students have a SGP measurement

Case 2: Multiple Sections w/wo SGP

Case 3: ESL/Bilingual/SWD

Case 4: Co-Teachers

Case 5: Push-in, pull-out

Case 6: NYSESLAT Students

Case 7: NYSAA

Case 8: Special Cases

Another Option

An Example:

Must use State Assessments

Another example:

Must use State Assessments

Keep in mind:

Activity 4: Determining SLOs

  • Locate the handout “Determining which teachers have SLOs”

  • With a partner or in a triad, complete the table

  • Be prepared to share out one scenario

Local Measure: 2nd 20%

Local Measures: 2nd 20%

Local Measure: 2nd 20%

Scoring SLOs

HEDI Bands

Reviewing Examples

Activity 5: Reviewing Examples

  • Locate handout of examples

  • Each team choose one example to review

  • Identify which process was chosen for this example

    • Target for mastery of standards

    • Target for score gain

    • Individual student growth gain

  • Identify which assessment was chosen or required

  • If multiple SLOs, explain the scoring


Please be back in 45 minutes

Activity 6: Creating an SLO

  • Givens:

    • This is an 8th grade social studies example

    • The teacher class assignments are all grade 8 social studies

    • The pre-test results are provided

    • The SLO must include the results from the state assessment in social studies for grade 8

Tying SLOs to Classroom Observations

Three tools for observations

  • Script

  • Selective verbatim

  • Tallying

Activity 7: Connecting Observations to SLOs

  • Watch a lesson on 8th grade social studies

  • After seeing the lesson, what evidence might you have to help this teacher achieve her SLO?

  • What might you suggest to this teacher to help insure her students achieve the standards set forth in the SLO?
