Learning

5 Step Evaluation Cycle

  • Every educator is an active participant in an evaluation
  • Process promotes collaboration and continuous learning
  • Foundation for the Model

Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education

5 step evaluation cycle rubrics
5 Step Evaluation Cycle: Rubrics

Every educator uses a rubric to self-assess against Performance Standards

Professional Practice goals – team and/or individual must be tied to one or more Performance Standards

Rubric is used to analyze performance and determine ratings on each Standard and Overall

Evidence is collected for Standards and Indicators; rubric should be used to provide feedback

Rubric is used to assess performance and/or progress toward goals

Counselor reviews data and identifies three areas for improvement, grade 8 transition issues for special education students, YRBS data for students feeling emotionally safe at school, and low participation levels for students in Teen Screen program

What does this look like?

Continuous

Learning

Counselor works with Director of Guidance to develop a department professional practice goal on Grade 8 Transition. Works with health educators, social workers, and school psychologists on a team student learning goal to improve emotional safety of students, and works with Behavioral Health Coordinator on a team student learning goal increasing percentage of students who participate in Teen Screen program.

Counselor receives a rating on each standard plus an overall rating based on performance against standards and progress on the three goals.

Counselor gathers and synthesizes evidence on progress on goals in Educator Plan. Director of Guidance focuses data collection on goal areas.

Midway through the cycle, the Director of Guidance and counselor and department/teams to review evidence and assess progress on goals: makes adjustments to action plan or benchmarks, if needed.

four different educator plans
Four Different Educator Plans
  • The Developing Educator Plan (Non-PTS Teachers and teachers new to a position)is developed by the educator and the evaluator and is for one school year or less.
  • The Self-Directed Growth Plan (PTS Teachers)applies to educators rated Proficient or Exemplary and is developed by the educator. When the Rating of Impact on Student Learning is implemented (beginning in 2013-14), educators with a Moderate or High Rating of Impact will be on a two-year plan; educators with a Low Rating will be on a one-year plan.
  • The Directed Growth Plan (PTS Teachers)applies to educators rated Needs Improvement and is a plan of one school year or less developed by the educator and the evaluator.
  • The Improvement Plan (PTS Teachers)applies to educators rated Unsatisfactory and is a plan of no less than 30 calendar days and no longer than one school year, developed by the evaluator.

exemplary
Exemplary

“The educator’s performance significantly exceeds Proficient and could serve as a model for leaders districtwide or even statewide. Few educators—principals and superintendents included—are expected to demonstrate Exemplary performance on more than a small number of Indicators or Standards.”

proficient
Proficient

“Proficient is the expected, rigorous level of performance for educators. It is the demanding but attainable level of performance for most educators.”

needs improvement
Needs Improvement
  • Educators whose performance on a Standard is rated as Needs Improvement may demonstrate inconsistencies in practice or weaknesses in a few key areas. They may not yet fully integrate and/or apply their knowledge and skills in an effective way. They may be new to the field or to this assignment and are developing their craft.
unsatisfactory
Unsatisfactory
  • Educators whose performance on a Standard is rated as Unsatisfactory are significantly underperforming as compared to the expectations. Unsatisfactory performance requires urgent attention.

  • Standard II: Teaching All Students. Promotes the learning and growth of all students through instructional practices that establish high expectations, create a safe and effective classroom environment, and demonstrate cultural proficiency.

Example
  • Element IIB-1. Safe Learning Environment
    • Proficient-Uses rituals, routines, and appropriate responses that create and maintain a safe physical and intellectual environment where students take academic risks and most behaviors interfere with learning are prevented.
