CMT’s and the Teacher Evaluation System

why connecticut has changed the system of accountability
Why Connecticut has changed the system of accountability:
  • CT received a waiver from AYP
    • CT’s waiver included:
      • Goal – not Proficiency – as expected performance level
      • Growth Model:
        • Counting all student movement between all levels shows growth
      • Student performance goals are meaningful for schools
performance index
Performance Index
  • Index between 0 and 100
  • Counts performance in all tested grade levels
  • Captures performance across performance bands
  • Includes all tested subjects: reading, writing, math, and science
  • Incorporates all tested students, including students who take the MAS and the Skills Checklist
  • Provides subject-specific indices and overall index
  • Calculated for “all students” group and subgroups: ELL, SWD, Black, Hispanic, F/R lunch

how did we do
How did we do?
  • Our Results
goal setting
Goal Setting
  • All teachers need to write several goals
  • One Goal is aligned to improving the SPI, which counts for 5% of the teacher’s total evaluation
  • To help work towards improving the SPI, all teachers will set a goal around reading
teacher support and development
Teacher Support and Development
  • All teachers have received a book entitled, “Developing Content Vocabulary”
  • All teachers have been trained in “reading across the content areas”
  • Language Arts Teachers K-8 have been trained in Reading Workshop for consistency across grade levels
  • Additional professional development and support during monthly Faculty/Curriculum Meetings and weekly Team Meetings
