ADE Encore Presentation of Educator Evaluation Model Outreach and Awareness
The Arizona Department of Education has developed a research based educator evaluation instrument aligned to the Arizona Framework for Measuring Educator Effectiveness meeting the parameters and state requirements adopted by the Arizona State Board of Education. These teacher and leader evaluation instruments contain multiple measures of teacher and leader effectiveness. Come explore a teacher evaluation instrument integrating: teaching performance (observation), student achievement progress data, including Student Learning Objectives (SLO’s) which measure growth for Group B teachers, and stakeholder surveys. You will also have the opportunity to discover how these same components can be incorporated into an effective principal evaluation instrument building leadership capacity. Your LEA’s evaluation model is the cornerstone to reaching successful school reform leading to better teaching and increased student performance. Come see how ADE can help and support your LEA in this important work.

This session is being repeated due to overwhelming response to the Central presentation held on March 31, 2014.
