What are the stages of safe t
What are the stages of SAFE-T?

  • Stage I: Preparation

  • Stage II: Collection of evidence

  • Stage III: Deliberation

  • Stage IV: Judgments


Safe t stage ii collection of evidence
SAFE-T Stage II: Collection of Evidence

Six types of evidence are collected:

  • Long-range plan and teacher reflections

  • Unit work sample and teacher reflections

  • Classroom observation records

  • Teacher reflections on observed lessons

  • Professional performance review(s)

  • Professional self-assessment


Safe t stage ii collection of evidence1
SAFE-T Stage II: Collection of Evidence

The evidence is compiled as follows:

  • All evidence is placed in a dossier. A dossier is an organized collection of data, somewhat like a portfolio.

  • The dossier is maintained by the team chair.


What is meant by evidence
What is meant by evidence?

In the legal world, evidence is represented by the facts of the case.

In the world of teacher evaluation, evidence is represented by descriptions of what was actually said or done. Therefore, evidence is information that is relatively free from value judgments.


What is the relationship between evidence judgment
What is the relationship between evidence & judgment?

  • Evidence is more objective; judgment is more subjective.

  • In sound, defensible evaluation, judgment is based on evidence. When judgment is based on evidence, we refer to it as informed judgment.


Why are teacher reflections included as evidence
Why are teacher reflections included as evidence?

  • Sound, defensible teacher evaluation requires evidence not only of what teachers say and do, but the reasoning behind their behavior.

  • Reflections allow teachers to explain the WHY behind the WHAT and HOW.


What is a template
What is a template?

A template is a standardized guide for recording evidence.


How many templates does safe t contain
How many templates does SAFE-T contain?

There are seven templates.

  • Four of the templates are to be completed by the teacher who is being evaluated. These are referred to as the teacher templates (TT1—TT4).


How many templates are used in safe t
How many templates are used in SAFE-T?

There are seven templates.

  • Three of the templates are to be completed by the evaluators. These are referred to as the evaluator templates (ET1—ET3).


Must we use the safe t templates
Must we use the SAFE-T templates?

Although only ET3, the SAFE-T Summary, is required, the use of all templates is highly recommended. If, however, the district already uses forms for recording evidence relative to one or more of the APSs, teachers and/or evaluators certainly may use those forms.


What happens to the completed templates
What happens to the completed templates?

All of the completed templates are placed in a dossier, which is maintained by the chair of the evaluation team.


What is tt1
What is TT1?

  • TT1 is the template that the teacher is to use to provide evidence related to long-range planning.

  • The five key elements associated with APS 1 form the basis for TT1 and are the criteria by which the long-range plan (LRP) is evaluated.


What is a long range plan
What is a long-range plan?

  • A long-range plan is a blueprint for teaching an entire course and is similar to a course syllabus.

  • A course is defined as a specified subject taught to a specified group (class) of students during a specified time frame (usually a semester or year).


How many lrps are required
How many LRPs are required?

  • For SAFE-T, the teacher is required to develop and submit an LRP for one course (i.e., to complete one TT1) per evaluation period.


Which course must the teacher select for the lrp tt1 in safe t
Which course must the teacher select for the LRP (TT1) in SAFE-T?

  • During the preliminary evaluation period, teachers at the early childhood and elementary (through grade 3) levels must develop an LRP in ELA if the teacher is required to be content-competent in ELA for his or her current teaching assignment.


Which course must the teacher select for the lrp tt1 in safe t1
Which course must the teacher select for the LRP (TT1) in SAFE-T?

  • In all other cases, the evaluation team is responsible for making this determination.

  • The evaluation team must select and/or approve the course in writing.


Is another lrp tt1 required during the final evaluation period
Is another LRP (TT1) required during the final evaluation period?

  • If all APS 1 key elements are met at the end of the preliminary evaluation period, the evaluation team has the option of waiving the LRP (TT1) requirement for the final evaluation period.


Is another lrp tt1 required during the final evaluation period1
Is another LRP (TT1) required during the final evaluation period?

  • If any of the APS 1 key elements are not met at the end of the preliminary evaluation period, the teacher must develop and submit another LRP (TT1) in a course that is selected and/or approved by the evaluation team.


What is tt2
What is TT2? period?

  • TT2 is the template that the teacher is to use to provide evidence related to Short-Range Planning (APS 2) and Planning Assessments and Using Data (APS3).

  • This evidence is presented in the form of a unit work sample (UWS).


What is a unit
What is a unit? period?

  • An instructional unit is a set of integrated lessons designed to accomplish learning objectives related to a curricular theme, a particular area of knowledge, or a general skill or process.


What is a unit1
What is a unit? period?

  • Typically, an instructional unit requires two or more weeks to complete. If a particular unit requires less than two weeks to complete, then more than one unit must be selected.


How is the uws unit selected
How is the UWS unit selected? period?

  • The teacher is to select the unit(s) for the UWS from the LRP that was submitted for evaluation.

  • The unit must be completed in its entirety during the evaluation period.

  • The UWS may not be based on the first unit in the instructional sequence.


What is the purpose of a uws
What is the purpose of a UWS? period?

  • A unit work sample requires the teacher to examine the impact of instruction on student achievement, making adjustments as needed to improve student learning.

  • The criteria for the unit work sample are drawn from the six key elements of APSs 2 and 3.


Is another uws tt2 required during the final evaluation period
Is another UWS (TT2) required during the final evaluation period?

  • If all six key elements of APSs 2 and 3 are met at the end of the preliminary evaluation period, the evaluation team has the option of waiving the UWS (TT2) requirement for the final evaluation period.


Is another uws tt2 required during the final evaluation period1
Is another UWS (TT2) required during the final evaluation period?

  • If any of the six key elements of APSs 2 and 3 are not met at the end of the preliminary evaluation period, the teacher must develop and submit another UWS (TT2) during the final evaluation period.


What is et1
What is ET1? period?

  • ET1, the Classroom Observation Record, is the template that evaluators use to record evidence relative to APSs 4 – 9.

  • The structure of ET1 is intended to help evaluators focus their observations on the appropriate key elements and organize their notes and records accordingly.


When do evaluators complete et1s
When do evaluators complete ET1s? period?

  • Evaluators must complete an ET1 following each integral classroom observation.


What is an integral classroom observation
What is an integral classroom observation? period?

Each integral, or complete, classroom observation

  • must be unannounced;

  • must last a minimum of 45 minutes; and

  • must yield evidence relative to all key elements of APSs 4-9.


How often are integral observations conducted
How often are integral observations conducted? period?

  • Each evaluation team member who is required to observe the teacher (i.e., a minimum of two evaluators) must conduct at least one integral classroom observation during each evaluation cycle.


Are walk through observations permitted
Are “walk through” observations permitted? period?

Information gathered during a walk-through observation may be included as evidence in SAFE-T only for one or more of the following three purposes:

  • to determine the need for additional integral classroom observations,


Are walk through observations permitted1
Are “walk through” observations permitted? period?

Information gathered during a walk-through observation may be included as evidence in SAFE-T only for one or more of the following three purposes:

  • to determine the need for a subsequent LRP and/or UWS; and/or


Are walk through observations permitted2
Are “walk through” observations permitted? period?

Information gathered during a walk-through observation may be included as evidence in SAFE-T only for one or more of the following three purposes:

  • to follow up on a specific instructional weakness that was identified during a previous integral observation.


What is tt3
What is TT3? period?

  • TT3 is the template that the teacher is to use to reflect on the lesson following each integral classroom observation.

  • Each reflection must include comments on objectives, teaching strategies, content appropriateness, assessment, feedback to students, and implications for subsequent instruction.


What is tt31
What is TT3? period?

  • The teacher must submit a written reflection (TT3) within seven calendar days following each integral classroom observation.


What is et2
What is ET2? period?

  • ET2 is the template that the principal (or designee) is to complete near the end of each evaluation period.

  • ET2 provides information about the principal’s perception of the teacher’s performance relative to the first four key elements of APS 10.


What is tt4
What is TT4? period?

  • TT4 is the template that the teacher is to use as a guide to completing a professional self-assessment.

  • In the self-assessment, the teacher is asked to focus on his or her professional strengths, professional challenges, impact on students, and plans for professional development.


What is tt41
What is TT4? period?

  • The teacher is to complete and submit TT4 near the end of the preliminary evaluation period in order to provide evidence relative to APS 10.E.


Is another tt4 required during the final evaluation period
Is another TT4 required during the final evaluation period? period?

  • If APS 10.E is met at the end of the preliminary evaluation period, the evaluation team has the option of waiving the professional self-assessment (TT4) requirement for the final evaluation period.


Is another tt4 required during the final evaluation period1
Is another TT4 required during the final evaluation period? period?

  • If APS 10.E is not met at the end of the preliminary evaluation period, the teacher must complete another professional self-assessment (TT4) requirement during the final evaluation period.


What s in the dossier
What’s in the dossier? period?

At this point, the dossier should contain the following completed documents:

  • TT1: teacher’s LRP and reflections

  • TT2: teacher’s UWS and reflections

  • ET1s: evaluators’ observation records

  • TT3s: teacher’s reflection on each observed lesson

  • ET2: professional review completed by the principal

  • TT4: teacher’s self-assessment


What about et3
What about ET3? period?

ET3 is the template that evaluators complete to link the evidence to the judgments. Consequently, ET3 is the focus of discussion during a subsequent training segment.
