Educator Effectiveness

Professional Growth Cycle and Aligned Professional Learning


The focus of the evaluation system is on improving professional practice and student learning. To that end, linking evaluations with high quality professional learning is key. Aligned evaluation systems inform educators of strengths and weaknesses and provide opportunities to make informed decisions regarding individual professional growth. High quality professional learning is sustained and focused and relevant to the educator’s goals and needs. All educators must have opportunities for professional growth to meet their needs, not only those whose evaluation ratings do not meet the standard.

STATE
Teacher and administrator evaluation systems are based on a cycle of continuous professional growth and learning that includes the following processes: Self-Reflection, Goal Setting, Observation/Collection of Evidence, Formative Assessment/Evaluation, Summative Evaluation. This cycle can be adapted to local district processes.
