Summary Year Educator gathers evidence and artifacts of progress towards the Educator Effectiveness Plan (EEP) Classroom Observations Classroom Observations
Observing teachers in the Summary Year Evaluators of teachers conduct one announced observation (with a pre-observation conference and a post-observation conference), plus three to five unannounced mini-observations (about 15-20 minutes long each), with at least two unannounced mini-observations during the Summary (final) year of the Effectiveness Cycle.
Non-Summary Year Educator gathers evidence and artifacts of progress towards Educator Effectiveness Plan (EEP) Mini Observation Mini Observation
Preparing for the Evaluation Process-Beginning of the year The Educator Effectiveness Plan: • Complete a self-rating of practice* • Prepare 1 Student Learning Objective (SLO) • Prepare 1 professional practice goal (PPG)
Educator Effectiveness Plan (EEP)The Self-Rating of Practice • The self-rating of practice, based on the Danielson Framework supports teacher reflection, goal setting and the observation process • Data from the self-rating is not included in the evaluation rating but is used by the teacher to inform the goal setting process

Evidence for Domains 2 and 3 • Domains 2 and 3 of the Danielson Framework are the “observable” domains-things you see during instruction • Evidence of proficiency in the components under these domains are demonstrated during classroom observations
Evidence for Domains 1 and 4 • Domains 1 and 4 of the Danielson Framework are the “unobservable” domains-things that are done in preparation for instruction • Evidence of proficiency in the components under these domains are demonstrated through artifacts such as unit or lesson plans and professional dialogue
Describing Levels of Practice • The rubric for rating practice is constructed using a four point scale, unsatisfactory, basic, proficient and distinguished • Examples of each component and critical attributes are described in the Framework to support understanding
Rating Rubric “Teaching is so hard and so complex that we visit four (rating of 4) from time to time but we don’t live there” - Charlotte Danielson
Review, Turn and Talk • Using a copy of the Danielson Framework review the Distinguished, and Proficient ratings under component 3C • Highlight the language that differentiates each level of practice • Be prepared to share what you noticed about the differences
Reflection and Self-Rating • Using the Danielson framework and the self-rating template, review the critical attributes of each component and complete your self-assessment for the 2014-2015 school year.
Accessing your Teachscape Account • www.login.teachscape.com • Enter email and password • Click on the Reflect tab then go to the Evaluation Planning
Evaluation Planning • When you click on evaluation planning, you will see the Self-Assessment • Once you have completed the self-assessment you will click on submit • This will inform the evaluator that the first part of the process is complete, and the Evaluation Planning Conference can be scheduled*
Debrief • What did you learn about the Danielson Framework as you prepared the self-assessment? • What questions did this generate for you?
Continuous School Improvement Plan 2014-15 • Add slides to strategically roll out your goal and plan for the school year …building ownership and planning for implementation and support
Educator Effectiveness Plan (EEP)-Student Learning Objective (SLO) The Student Learning Objective identifies the standards and skills that students need to master and the ways teachers will measure students’ progress relative to those skills throughout a course.
Why Student Learning Objectives? “An effective educator can change the course of a student’s future. Evidence has shown that setting rigorous and ambitious goals for student achievement, combined with purposeful use of data, can lead to greater academic growth and performance by students.” -The Department of Public Instruction
Results and Process • Results focus on what you want as an outcome; processes focus on howyou will get there • Results can be measured in multiple ways; processes either occur or do not occur • Results reflect impact; processes reflect implementation • Both are important and necessary for teacher effectiveness and student learning to be maximized
Team Student Learning Objectives • Grade-level teams or departments can set common Student Learning Objectives • Common goals support sharing of resources, strategies and collaborative learning
SLO Development Guiding Questions • What do you want students to know and be able to do? (What standard(s) will be addressed?) 2. How will you know if they learned it? (which assessment?) • Which assessments offer pre/post data points? • What assessments will I use to track progress between pre and post? (formative)
Elements of Student Learning Objectives • Learning Content- Which grade-level content standards or skills do we want students to master? • Baseline Data and Rationale-Why did we choose this objective and what data did you analyze? • Population-Which students are included in this objective? • Interval-What time frame is involved? • Evidence Sources-Howwill we measure the objective? • Targeted Growth-What is our goal for student growth? • Instructional Practices-What instructional strategies will we use to reach the goal? • Support-What professional development or support is needed to reach the goal?
Example Student Learning Objective • With a group of 3-4, review the example Student Learning Objectives • Use the checklist to determine if all the required elements are included in the SLO • What feedback would you share to strengthen the SLO?
Debrief • What did you notice about the SLO process as you reviewed the example SLO? • What questions did this process surface for you?
The Professional Practice Goal (PPG) • The Professional Practice Goal is based on an instructional strategy or practice that will support the Student Learning Objective or another aspect of practice that the teacher identifies through a self-rating • The professional practice goal is not rated individually • The professional practice goal helps support individual reflection and serves as a focus for feedback in the observation process
The Educator Effectiveness Plan The Educator Effectiveness Plan is completed by October 31st In the Summary Year the teacher will meet with the principal to review the EEP goals (SLO and PPG) In the supportive years the teacher will seek feedback from peers and enter the final goal into the Teachscape system
How do the PDP and the EEP Connect? • The Professional Development Plan includes a long term goal (4 years) aimed at strengthening instructional practices to improve student learning • The Educator Effectiveness Plan includes goals for practice and student learning that are shorter intervals (9 weeks, semester, academic year)that may inform the longer term PDP goal
