definition of teacher effectiveness
Definition of Teacher Effectiveness

Effective Teachers in the state of Colorado have the knowledge, skills, and commitments needed to provide excellent and equitable learning opportunities and growth for all students. They strive to support growth and development, close achievement gaps and to prepare diverse student populations for postsecondary and workforce success. Effective Teachers facilitate mastery of content and skill development, and employ and adjust evidence-based strategies and approaches for students who are not achieving mastery and students who need acceleration. They also develop in students the skills, interests and abilities necessary to be lifelong learners, as well as for democratic and civic participation. Effective Teachers communicate high expectations to students and their families and utilize diverse strategies to engage them in a mutually supportive teaching and learning environment. Because effective Teachers understand that the work of ensuring meaningful learning opportunities for all students cannot happen in isolation, they engage in collaboration, continuous reflection, on-going learning and leadership within the profession.

structure of evaluation teacher evaluations
Structure of EvaluationTeacher Evaluations
  • Evaluated using: (1) a measure of individually-attributed growth, (2) a measure of collectively-attributed growth; (3) when available, statewide summative assessments; and (4) where applicable, Colorado Growth Model data.

Evaluated using: (1) observations; and (2) at least one of the following: student perception measures, peer feedback, parent/guardian feedback, or review of lesson plans/student work samples. May include additional measures.

Quality Standards I-V:

I. Mastery of content

II. Establish learning environment

III. Facilitate learning

IV. Reflect on practice

V. Demonstrate leadership

Quality Standard VI:

state model rubric basics
State Model Rubric Basics
  • Cumulative in content
  • Each level of the rubric represents an increase in the quality, intensity, consistency, breadth, depth, and complexity of practice
  • Effectiveness marked by the addition of practices that improve the overall performance of the educator and drives to student outcomes
  • Standards based
    • Outlines the practices that you must meet to be at standard
teacher quality standards
Teacher Quality Standards
  • Work in triads:
    • Read the assigned standard and each element.
    • Record a practice or two that brings this element to life in the classroom. What might you see a teacher doing?
    • Record what students would be doing to reflect this practice (Standards 1-3) or artifacts that would support the practices (Standards 4-5).
  • Be prepared to share your responses
    • What are common themes among the standards?
    • What aha’s did you have?
    • What questions do you have?
reflecting on your practice self assessment
Reflecting On Your Practice: Self-Assessment
  • Using the Self-Assessment Rubric, place a check beside the professional practices that you employ in your teaching.

scoring the rubric
Scoring the Rubric

Determining the teacher’s professional practices rating is a three-step process that involves rating the individual elements and standards and using those to determine the overall rating on professional practices.

  • Rating the Elements
  • Rating the Standards
  • Determining the Overall Professional Practices Rating

reflecting on your practice self assessment1
Reflecting On Your Practice: Self-Assessment
  • Review your Self-Assessment Rubric, and determine an overall rating for each Element and Standard.
  • After determining your overall ratings for each Standard, record them in the shaded box for each Standard.
  • Then, return to Standard I and list 2-3 strengths you are bringing into the teaching profession related to that Standard. Then, list 1-2 professional growth goals related to the Standard that will inform the continuous improvement of your craft. Repeat this process for Standards II-V.
    • Complete this on the STP Intern Self-Assessment form.
    • Email your completed self-assessment rubric and form to Lisa Higby.

role play
Role Play!
  • Principal
    • Invite the conversation.
    • E.g., “Tell me about your professional successes and goals…”
  • Teacher
    • Share one strength and professional goals.
  • Reflection
    • How did this conversation inform your thinking about teacher evaluation?
an ethic of excellence
An Ethic of Excellence

I believe that the work of excellence is transformational. Once a student sees that he or she is capable of excellence, that student is never quite the same. There is a new self-image, a new notion of possibility. There is an appetite for excellence. After students have had a taste of excellence, they’re never quite satisfied with less; they’re always hungry.
