Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA)

The University of Toledo

Faculty Senate

October 9, 2012

how has ohio responded to the national pressure
How has Ohio responded to the national pressure?
  • Ohio House Bill 1 (passed in 2009, established a new licensure structure for Ohio educators, effective in 2011).
  • HB 1 transfers responsibility for approving teacher preparation program from the State Board to the Chancellor of the Board of Regents.
  • Directs the Chancellor, jointly with the State Superintendent, to:
    • Establish metrics and educator preparation programs for the preparation of educators and other school personnel (Ohio Educator Preparation Metrics), and (2) provide for inspection of the institutions (accreditation process).
  • Through HB 1, Ohio is the first in the nation to require a four-year induction program (Resident Educator).

Teacher Performance Assessment Model

why a t eacher p erformance assessment for pre service teachers
Why a teacher performance assessment for pre-service teachers?
  • The Ohio Educator Preparation Metricsinclude a “statewide teacher performance assessment.”
  • Prior to HB 1 Ohio required Praxis III, a performance based assessment used during the induction year of teaching.
    • Praxis III was line item budgeted.
    • The new performance assessment requirement is an unfunded mandate.
teacher performance assessment tpa background
Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA) Background
  • Three-year grant to create a National Teacher Performance Assessment

rubric progression
Rubric Progression
  • Early novice  highly accomplished beginner
  • Rubrics are additive and analytic
  • Candidates demonstrate:
    • Expanding repertoire of skills and strategies
    • Deepening of rationale and reflection
  • Teacher focus  student focus
    • Whole class  generic group  individuals
pearson s role in the tpa
Pearson’s Role in the TPA
  • Pearson has been selected as Stanford’s operational partner.
  • Pearson will provide assessment services to deliver the TPA nationally.
  • Pearson’s involvement will result in sustainability of the product.
  • Pearson will train and certify scorers, provide a scoring platform and report results for the operational TPA.
ohio s next steps
Ohio’s Next Steps
  • As soon as possible Ohio’s teacher performance assessment requirement must be identified (i.e., candidate licensure requirement vs. program requirement).
  • In December 2012 Ohio Teacher Preparation Programs Report Cards are scheduled to be released. If adopted, TPA data will be included as part of the report card.
  • In 2013 the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System Model begins for all K-12 schools. This system focuses on teacher performance and student growth and results will appear on the Report Card. This system is aligned with TPA.
