who should be evaluated
Who should be evaluated?

…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

timeline for implementation
Timeline for Implementation

2013-2014 school year with the following exceptions:

  • TIF/SIG/RttT schools according to their grant timelines or scope of work
  • If bargaining agreement was entered into prior to 9/24/12, immediately upon expiration of agreement
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.

Excerpted from Measuring Student Growth for Teachers in Non-Tested Grades and Subjects: A Primer

3 potential measures for student growth
3 Potential Measures for Student Growth

Depending on LEA decisions and the availability of data:

  • Value-added
  • Approved vendor-created assessments
  • LEA determined SGMs using SLOs
3 measures of student growth
LEA Measures 3 Measures of Student Growth

Approved VendorAssessments

  • Approved ODE List
  • Vendor had to show a metric for student growth
  • List is fluid


EVAAS Reports


Extended Reporting w/Terra Nova and ACT EOC exams

Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)

Shared Attribution

(Other) Vendor Assessments








1 teacher value added
1. Teacher Value-Added
  • MUST use if available
    • 10-50% if applicable for 2012-2013
      • Category A1 >25% effective July 2013
      • Category A1: full 50% effective July 2014
      • Category A2-proportionate
  • EVAAS Value-Added metric, aggregated across subject areas
    • 1-year report; or 2- or 3-year rolling average, based on availability
2 approved vendor assessments
2. Approved Vendor Assessments
  • From ODE-Approved List
    • Vendors demonstrate how assessment can measure growth
  • MUST use for Category B Teachers
    • 10-50% if applicable and no Value-Added data available
      • Category A1-LEA decision in SY2013-2014, not applicable for 2014-2015
      • Category A2-LEA decision
3 lea determined measures
3. LEA-Determined Measures
  • MAY use: LEA decision for Category A and B
    • 0-40% if used in combination with Category A or B measures
    • 24% max for Category A1 in SY2013-2014
    • 0% for Category A1 in 2014-2015 and thereafter
    • Proportionate to Category A2 teacher’s schedule
  • MUST use if Category C Teacher
    • 50% if no Category A or B data available
3 lea determined measures1
3. LEA-Determined Measures
  • Three types of LEA-Determined Measures
    • Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)
    • Shared Attribution
    • Approved Vendor assessments

Category A2 teachers can use local measures after VA is applied proportionately.

Category A1 teachers can use local measures in 2013-2014 only (24% max).

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.

slo resources
SLO Resources
  • Introduction to SLOs
  • Student Learning Objective Guidebook
  • Student Growth Measures for Teachers
  • SLO Writing Template
  • SLO Checklist for Writing & Approving
  • Sample SLOs

Reinforce Best Teaching Practice Through

Setting goals for students

Using data to assess student progress

Adjusting instruction based upon progress

why is ohio using slos
Why is Ohio Using SLOs?

Reinforce promising teaching practices

Can be used in all subjects/content areas

Are adaptable

Provide teachers some ownership on how they are evaluated

measures for slos
Measures for SLOs

SLOs can be created drawing on different data sources:

  • teacher created assessments
  • performance assessments
  • rubric‐based assessments
  • business & industry certification
  • state or national assessments
do all teachers need to write slos
Do all Teachers Need to Write SLOs?

ODE recommends that all teachers create at least one SLO this year to gain experience with the SLO process.

In subsequent years, teachers should create two to four SLOs per year.

  • Category A1 will not have the option to use local measures beginning July 2014.
high quality slos include
High-Quality SLOs Include:
  • Baseline & Trend Data
  • Student Population
  • Interval of Instruction
  • Standards & Content
  • Assessment(s)
  • Growth Target(s)
  • Rationale for Growth Target(s)
slo approval
SLO Approval

SLOs are approved at the local level.

ODE recommends an existing committee.

Provide feedback: both cool & warm.

Recommend allowing 10 days for revisions.

slo approval process
SLO Approval Process
  • Committees should go through a calibration process.
  • Read over the entire SLO first.
  • Using the checklist, review the SLO.
  • Discuss whether it meets each criterion and provide feedback to the teacher.
  • Develop a plan for tracking SLOs returned for revisions.
high quality slos include the following criteria
High-quality SLOs include the following criteria:
  • Baseline and Trend Data
  • Student Population
  • Interval of Instruction
  • Standards and Content
  • Assessment(s)
  • Growth Target(s)
  • Rationale for Growth Target(s)


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.
  • Reviews trend data to inform the objective and establish the amount of growth that should take place.
  • Identifies student strengths and weaknesses.
student population
Student Population:
  • Includes all students in the class.
  • Describes the student population (number, course, grade level, etc.).
  • Considers any contextual factors that may impact growth.
  • Does not exclude subgroups of students that may have difficulty meeting targets. Provide details.
interval of instruction
Interval of Instruction:
  • The duration of the course that the SLO will cover including the start and end dates.
  • Include how frequently the course meets and length of a class period.
  • Include any other relevant information that could impact student growth.
standards and content
Standards and Content:
  • Specify which standards the SLO covers.
  • Broad enough to represent the most important learning or overarching skills, but narrow enough to be measured.
  • What content do the students need in order to be successful next year or in the next course? Explain why.
  • Is this a targeted SLO?
assessment s
  • Identify the assessment. Who created/ reviewed it? Describe its structure.
  • Describe how the assessment provides “stretch” for low and high achieving.
  • Identify supplemental assessments.
  • Provide specific details on how multiple tests will be combined into a summative score.
  • Follow assessment guidelines.
selecting assessments for slos
Selecting Assessments for SLOs

Selecting and approving assessments can be one of the most challenging and important steps of the SLO process.

Assessments enable teachers to determine growth toward and attainment of the SLO.

criteria for selecting assessments
Criteria for Selecting Assessments
  • Was the assessment(s) reviewed by content/industry experts?
  • Is the assessment aligned to both the SLO and the standards?
  • Does the assessment have enough stretch?
  • Is the assessment valid & reliable?
selecting assessments for slos1
Selecting Assessments for SLOs
  • ODE strongly recommends LEAs not allow assessments created by one teacher for use in his/her classroom.
growth target s
Growth Target(s)
  • Growth targets should be developmentally appropriate, rigorous, and attainable.
  • Ensure all students have a growth target (not necessarily a passing score).
  • Refer to baseline/pretest data and course requirements.
  • Provide tiered targets to encompass all learners.

*Rank order pretest scores and look for breaks in data.

rationale for growth target s
Rationale for Growth Target(s)
  • Rationale ties it ALL together.
  • Explain how you used the data to establish the targets.
  • Refer to students strengths/weaknesses based upon data.
  • Explain why this content is the most important.
  • Rationales should be aligned to broader school and district goals.

*Connect pre-test data + tiered targets = expectations (show connections & accountability)
