  8. Central Office Evaluation System • Steps in Evaluation Process (cont.) 6. Review portfolio (evaluator) 7. Conduct interviews (evaluator/central office administrator) 8. Prepare Evaluation Summary Report (evaluator) 9. Summary conference and PDP (evaluator/ central office administrator) Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  9. Generates data for all areas of knowledge and skills · Optionally used by the central office administrator and shared with evaluator only if central office administrator agrees · Used by central office administrator to: · 1) Identify areas that need improvement 2) Compare the central office administrator’s perceptions of performance with the results of the evaluation 3) Determine areas for professional growth activities to be included in a professional development plan. Central Office Evaluation System Self-Assessment Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  10. A Clarifying Interview with probing questions focused on clarifying or bringing understanding to the portfolio and/or written interview (questions differ from central office administrator to central office administrator) · Conducted after the evaluator analyzes central office administrator’s portfolio · Modified scripting is used to record responses Responses can be banked for one year · · Central Office Evaluation System Interviews Two types of interviews: · A Structured Interview with 6 questions commonly asked of central office administrators (oral or written response format) · Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  11. · Generates data for seven areas of knowledge/skills: · Communication (oral) · Collaboration processes and skills · Assessment/measurement/evaluation · Organizing for results · Planning · Problem solving · Technology management · Oral Option: A discussion between the central office administrator and the evaluator (or his/her designee) about particular areas of the central office administrator’s knowledge, skills, and performance. Central Office Evaluation System Structured Interviews Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  12. · Each of the structured interview question sets is intended to cover one knowledge and skill area (although responses may cut across more than one area). Communication skills are considered as part of the oral presentation. · The structured interview itself is not scored, but responses are added to other evidence provided through other sources. · Written Option: Central office administrator’s written responses to interview questions (will have clarifying discussion). Central Office Evaluation System Structured Interviews (cont.) Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  13. Conducted after the structured interview is completed with a focus on the written interview and, optionally, the central office administrator’s portfolio · No set number of questions, but key questions specific to the written interview and portfolio (optional) are developed by the evaluator to bring clarity and understanding of their contents · Responses are added to other evidence provided through other sources · Central Office Evaluation System The Clarifying Interview Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  14. Generates data for six areas of knowledge and skills: · Professional Responsibilities · Fiscal Leadership/Management · Laws/Policies · Innovation · Program Operations/Management · Leadership of Human Resources · Provides data where a supervisor should have objective, experiential information · Central Office Evaluation System The Supervisor’s Review Form Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  15. Generates data for 12 areas of knowledge and skills: · Communication Collaboration · · Assessment/Evaluation Organizing for Results · · Planning Laws and Policies · · Problem Solving Innovation · · Technology Management Program Operations/Management · · Fiscal Leadership Human Resources Leadership · · Central office administrator is responsible for providing some evidence of his/her knowledge and skills · The totality of the evidential material (lines of evidence for all knowledge/skill areas) will constitute central office administrator’s evaluation portfolio · Central Office Evaluation System The Central Office Portfolio Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  16. There is no one specific form of packaging required for the portfolio, but there are organizational requirements · · Each entry (piece of evidence) is accompanied by a Portfolio Entry Form · Total portfolio requires approximately 27 pieces of evidence · One piece of evidence might serve 2-3 purposes (e.g., Program Improvement Plan) · With multiple purposes, a portfolio may have 10-12 entries (pieces of evidence) Central Office Evaluation System The Central Office Portfolio Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation

  17. Explicit guidelines for developing a line of evidence in each area are provided in the evaluation manual · Evaluated on the quality of materials rather than the quantity of materials in the portfolio · "Extra" entries will not be considered by the evaluator · Central Office Evaluation System The Central Office Portfolio Alabama Department of Education Central Office Field Test Evaluation
