ohio revised code and teacher evaluation
Ohio Revised Code and Teacher Evaluation

…Any person who is employed under a teacher license issued under this chapter, or under a professional or permanent teacher’s certificate issued under former section 3319.222 of the Revised Code, and who spends at least fifty per cent of the time employed providing student instruction.

ORC 3319.111

definition of student growth
Definition of Student Growth

The change in student achievement for an individual student between two or more points in time.


What do we know?

3 types of measures

3 categories of teachers

District discretion and flexibility



  • Locally- Determined Measures

3 Types of Local Measures

Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)

Shared Attribution

  • Approved vendor assessments for Category A2 teachers (proportionate)

Encourages collaborative goals and may include:

Shared Attribution

  • Building or District Value-Added is recommended if available;
  • Content Area Building Teams may use a Value-Added score; and
  • Building or District-based SLOs

Shared Attribution Decisions

  • Is the district going to use shared attribution as a local measure?
  • Which single shared attribution measure will the district apply?
  • How much weight will the district assign to shared attribution? (5-10% recommended)
what is an slo
What is an SLO?

A measurable, long‐term academic goal informed by available data that a teacher or teacher team sets at the beginning of the year for all students or for subgroups of students.

do all teachers need to write slos
Do all Teachers Need to Write SLOs?

In full implementation, teachers using

SLOs as a growth measure will write

two to four per year regardless of category.

why is ohio using slos
Why is Ohio Using SLOs?

Reinforce promising teaching practices

and connect practice to student learning

Used in all subjects/content areas


slo approval
SLO Approval

SLOs are approved at the local level

ODE recommends an existing committee

Provide feedback: both cool & warm

recommended steps for approving an slo
Recommended Steps for Approving an SLO
  • Committees should go through a calibration process first.
  • Read over the entire SLO.
  • Using the checklist, review the SLO.
  • Discuss whether it meets each criterion and provide feedback.
  • Allow 10 days for needed revisions.
slos components include
SLOs Components Include:
  • Baseline & Trend Data
  • Student Population
  • Interval of Instruction
  • Standards & Content
  • Assessment(s)
  • Growth Target(s)
  • Rationale for Growth Target(s)
data sources
Data Sources

SLOs can be created drawing on different data sources:

  • vendor assessments not on the ODE list
  • Career & Technical Educational assessments
  • locally-developed assessments
  • performance assessments
  • portfolios
baseline and trend data
Baseline and Trend Data:
  • Identifies source(s) and summarizes student information (test score from previous years, results of pre-assessments) in numerical and narrative form.
  • Draws upon trend data, if available.
  • Summarizes analysis of data by identifying student strengths and weaknesses.
sample student population
Sample Student Population
  • The SLO covers all 57 6th grade science students, which I teach 1st/2nd periods
  • 7-IEP students (6 reading, 1 math)
  • 2-504 students (ADHD, hearing impairment)
  • 7-Gifted students (science)
  • Students with 45 or more unexcused or excused days will be excluded from the final rating
sample interval of instruction
Sample Interval of Instruction

This is a yearlong course taught in one 41 minute period per day.

The SLO interval of instruction begins August 27, 2013, and ends on April 15, 2014.

standards and content
Standards and Content:
  • Specify which standards the SLO covers.
  • Represents the big ideas or domains of the content. (Teacher should explain why s/he believes these are the most important.)
  • Identifies core knowledge/skills students should attain if the SLO is targeted.
selecting assessments for slos
Selecting Assessments for SLOs

Selecting and approving assessments is a challenging and important step.

ODE strongly recommends districts not allow assessments created by one teacher for use in his or her classroom

assessment s
  • Identifies valid & reliable assessments reviewed by content experts. (State who created / reviewed it? Describe its structure.)
  • Describes how the assessment provides “stretch” for both low and high achieving.
  • Provides specific details on how multiple tests will be combined into a one score.
  • Follows assessment guidelines.
growth target s
Growth Target(s)

The targets should reflect high expectations for student achievement that are developmentally appropriate.

The targets should be rigorous yet attainable.

rationale for growth target s
Rationale for Growth Target(s)

High-quality SLOs include strong justifications for why the goal is

important and achievable.

The rationale ties it ALL together.

rationale for growth target s1
Rationale for Growth Target(s):
  • Demonstrates teacher knowledge of students & content.
  • Explains why the targets are appropriate.
  • Addresses student needs.
  • Uses data to identify student needs & determine appropriate targets.
  • Aligns with broader school/district goals.
  • Sets rigorous expectations for students and teacher
slo review activity
SLO Review Activity
  • Complete calibration exercises.
  • Read the entire Automotive Tech I SLO.
  • Using the checklist, review the SLO.
  • Discuss each component with a partner.
  • Provide feedback for the instructor.
  • Allow 10 days for needed revisions.
