the educator evaluation framework
The Educator Evaluation Framework



Needs Improvement





  • Everyone earns two ratings


Performance Rating




student impact rating
Student Impact Rating
  • Evaluators must assign a rating based on trends (at least 2 years)and patterns (at least 2 measures)
  • Options:
    • Statewide growth measure(s) must be used, where available
    • District-determined Measure(s) of student learning comparable across grade or subject district-wide.

“Measures of student learning, growth, and achievement related to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, Massachusetts Vocational Technical Education Frameworks, or other relevant frameworks, that are comparable across grade or subject level district-wide. These measures may include, but shall not be limited to: portfolios, approved commercial assessments and district-developed pre and post unit and course assessments, and capstone projects.”

  • Student Measures
  • Aligned to Frameworks
  • Comparable Across District
  • Expansive Definition of Acceptable Measures

sy 2013 2014 ddm milestones
SY 2013-2014 DDM Milestones

*ESE will release the June 2014 submission template and DDM implementation extension request form in December 2013..

ddm implementation timeline
DDM Implementation Timeline
  • August 15th – Commissioner’s Memorandum
    • Extension requests will be coupled with June 2014 submissions
    • One-year extension of DDM implementation for particular grade(s)/subject(s) or course(s) for which the district has not yet identified DDMs.
    • Blanket extensions will not be granted.
    • Use judiciously - not all districts will need an extension
    • Not a pause button.
ddm key questions
DDM Key Questions
  • Is the measure aligned to content?
    • Does it assess what the educators intend to teach and what’s most important for students to learn?
  • Is the measure informative?
    • Do the results tell educators whether students are making the desired progress, falling short, or excelling?
    • Do the results provide valuable information to schools and districts about their educators?
refining your pilot ddms
Refining your Pilot DDMs
  • Districts will employ a variety of approaches to identify pilot DDMs (e.g., build, borrow, buy).
  • Key considerations:
    • How well does the assessment measure growth?
    • Is there a common administration protocol?
    • Is there a common scoring process?
    • How do results correspond to low, moderate, of high growth?
    • Is the assessment comparable to other DDMs?
  • Use the DDM Key Questions and these considerations to strengthen your assessments during the pilot year.

Ongoing Work with WestEd
  • Continued collection and evaluation of locally-developed assessments.
  • Evaluation of all collected assessments for additional grade/subject and course coverage, specifically to expand the collection of Example DDMs in the minimum pilot areas.
  • Analyze new information submitted by assessment developers and make appropriate revisions to one-page summaries.
  • Execute a scope of work that will yield Example DDMs in the CVTE program areas
using current assessments
Using Current Assessments
  • Presentation
    • Guidance Document: Using Current Assessments in DDMs
    • Curriculum Summit November 6th and 7th
  • Content
    • Three steps for bringing together multiple assessments from across the year to measure growth

ddms 4 key messages
DDMs: 4 Key Messages
  • DDMs are part of a multidimensional framework.
    • Decisions about an educator’s impact or effectiveness will never be based of the results of a single DDM.
  • Focus is on students, not just educators
    • DDMs must yield information that will be useful to educators in improving student outcomes.
  • This is about building capacity.
    • DDMs provide districts a good reason to consider ways to refine and improve existing assessment practices.
  • Teachers have the necessary skills to lead the process of identifying DDMs – You can do this!
    • Many districts will have success leveraging teacher-developed assessments to develop DDMs.
