Intended outcomes
Intended Outcomes

At the end of all modules teachers should be able to:

  • Explain the categories of student growth measures within the Ohio Educator Evaluation Systems

  • Explain what makes a high-quality SLO

  • Understand the importance of using appropriate assessments in the SLO process

  • Develop growth targets

  • Score an individual SLO


Who will be evaluated under otes
Who Will Be Evaluated Under OTES?

  • Any person who is employed under a teaching license or under a professional or permanent teacher’s certificate and who spends at least 50 percent of his/her time employed providing student instruction. This does not apply to a teacher employed as a substitute.

  • This usually excludes:

    • Speech pathologists, occupational therapists

    • Teachers on assignment

    • Nurses, psychologists, guidance counselors



Definition of student growth
Definition of Student Growth

For the purpose of use in Ohio’s evaluation systems, student growth is defined as the change in student achievement for an individual student between two or more points in time.

What are the types of lea measures
What are the Types of LEA Measures? Assessment Data Available

  • Student learning objectives (SLOs)

  • Shared attribution

  • Vendor assessments (Category A only)


Student growth measures 2013 14 only
Student Growth Assessment Data AvailableMeasures**2013-14 only

  • LEA measures must count as 50 percent of the evaluation of Category C teachers

  • LEAs can choose to use LEA measures with all other categories of teachers, but the weights assigned to those measures must fall within acceptable ranges:

    • Category A1: No more than 24 percent*

    • Category A2: Must be proportional to teaching schedule

    • Category B: No more than 40 percent

*beginning in July 2014, Category A1 teachers may no longer use LEA measures


Student growth measures starting 2014 15
Student Growth Measures Assessment Data Available**Starting 2014-15

LEA Measures:

Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)

Shared Attribution

Vendor Assessments

(for Category A teachers only)


Shared attribution
Shared Attribution Assessment Data Available

  • Shared attribution is a collective measure.

  • The LEA determines which measure of shared attribution it would like to use.

  • Shared attribution could be:

    • A building or district value-added score

      • Recommended if available

    • Building team composite value-added score (i.e. the 5th grade VAM score or the middle school reading ELA team’s combined VAM score)

    • Building-level or district-level SLOs

What are student learning objectives
What are Assessment Data AvailableStudent Learning Objectives?

An SLO is:

  • A goal that demonstrates a teacher’s impact on student learning within a given interval of instruction.

  • A measurable, long-term academic target written by an individual teacher or a teacher team.


Why implement slos
Why Implement SLOs? Assessment Data Available

  • SLOs…

    • Reinforce promising teaching practices and connect teacher practice to student learning

    • Can be used in all subjects and content areas

    • Are adaptable

    • Encourage collaboration

    • Provide teachers some ownership of how they are evaluated


Slo evaluation cycle
SLO Evaluation Cycle Assessment Data Available


The slo development process
The SLO Development Process Assessment Data Available

STEP 1:Gather and review available data

STEP 2:Determine the interval of instruction and identify content

STEP 3: Choose assessments and set the growth target

STEP 4: Submit your SLO and prepare for approval and review

  • STEP 5: Final scoring of the SLO


Slo template and example
SLO Template and Example Assessment Data Available

Take 10 minutes to:

  • Look at the seven components in the blank template (Handout 1.1).

  • Critically review the Choir SLO example

    (Handout 1.2)

    Then, take 10 minutes to:

  • Jot down questions, points of confusion or other comments on each component on Post-It notes and place them on the corresponding sheet of chart paper within that component.


Slo template checklist
SLO Template Checklist Assessment Data Available


High quality slos include or address the following criteria
High-quality SLOs include or address the following criteria: Assessment Data Available

  • Baseline and Trend Data

  • Student Population

  • Interval of Instruction

  • Standards and Content

  • Assessment(s)

  • Growth Target(s)

  • Rationale for Growth Target(s)

Slo components 1 2
SLO Components 1 - 2 Assessment Data Available

  • Baseline and Trend Data

    • Summarizes student information (test score from previous years, results of pre-assessments),

    • Identifies student strengths and weaknesses, and

    • Reviews trend data to inform the objective and establish the amount of growth that should take place.

  • Student Population. Includes the following:

    • Students

    • Course

    • Grade level

    • Number of students included in the objective.


Slo components 3 4
SLO Components 3-4 Assessment Data Available

  • Interval of Instruction. The duration of the SLO (including start and end dates)

  • Standards and Content.

    • SLO should cover the content, skills, and specific standards to which the SLO is aligned.

    • SLOs should be broad enough to represent the most important learning or overarching skills, but narrow enough to be measured.


Slo components 5 6
SLO Components 5-6 Assessment Data Available

  • Assessment(s).

  • Assessments that will be used to measure student growth for the objective.

  • Assessment(s) should be reviewed by content experts to effectively measure course content and should have sufficient “stretch” so that all students may demonstrate learning.

  • If supplemental assessments are needed to cover all ability levels in the course, this section should provide a plan for combining multiple assessments.

  • Growth Target(s).

  • The target for student growth should reflect high expectations for student achievement that are developmentally appropriate.

  • The targets should be rigorous yet attainable.


Slo component 7
SLO Component 7 Assessment Data Available

  • Rationale for Growth Target(s).

    • High quality SLOs include strong justifications for why the goal is important and achievable for this group of students.

    • Rationales should draw upon assessment, baseline and trend data, student outcomes, and curriculum standards and should be aligned to broader school and district goals.


Reviewing an slo using the checklist
Reviewing an SLO using the Checklist Assessment Data Available

  • With a partner, evaluate the quality of the Choir SLO prior to revision in Handout 1.4 using the SLO Template Checklist (Handout 1.3).

    • Discuss what changes would need to be made and questions you would have for the teacher

    • Then, compare your suggestions to the annotated checklist in Handout 1.5.


Slo approval status and accompanying rationale
SLO Approval Status and Accompanying Rationale Assessment Data Available

  • Evaluators will review the SLO to assure that all required elements are complete

  • Evaluators should complete the SLO Approval Status and Accompanying Rationale form (Handout 1.6) about the SLOs prior to the conference

  • Evaluators should identify any areas requiring further development and clarifying questions that will support a quality approval process
