1 APS Teacher Evaluation Module 7: Preparing for My Mid-Year Conversation

2 Rate your understanding of the revised teacher evaluation system: Fist – I didnt know it was changed. 1 finger – I just understand SMART goals, not sure what else I am supposed to do. 2 fingers – I understand SMART goals and my documentation log. 3 fingers – I understand all the components, but still have a few questions on how I will be rated. 4 fingers – I understand all the components and dont have any questions. 5 Fingers – I could help my colleagues in understanding in the entire process. Check for Understanding- Fist to Five? 2

4 Mid-Year Conversation 1.What does a mid-year conversation look like? 2.How should my data be presented? 3.How will my SMART goal be measured at the end of the year? 4.Checking for student understanding 5.Progress on Documentation Log Agenda 4

5 What is student progress goal setting? Step 1: Determine needs Step 2: Create specific learning goals based on pre- assessment Step 4: Monitor progress through on- going formative assessment Step 3: Create and implement strategies Step 5: Determine whether the goal was achieved 5

6 Monitor progress Adjust strategies as needed Determining Goal Attainment- Key points 6

7 On the chart paper at your table list the ways you are monitoring progress towards achieving your SMART goal. If more than one person is using that method/data put check marks next to it to represent the number of those using it Check for Understanding: Charting 7

8 Be prepared to address: How are you doing with your SMART goal? What is working? What is not working? What changes have you made (or are you planning to make)? How are you monitoring progress? Share mid-year data. Feedback on the other 6 performance standards. 1. What does the mid-year conversation look like? 8

9 Provide a summary of class/focus group data, not individual sets of data Present data in a table or graph that shows baseline and mid-year data to highlight growth or lack of growth 2. How do I summarize and present my data? Base- line data Mid- year data Growth from base- line to mid year End of year data Growth from base-line to end of year Student A Student B Student C 9

10 Specialist Data Example 10

11 11

12 How will you summarize your data for the mid-year conversation? Sketch out your data table Check for understanding: Share with a partner and listen to their ideas. Activity 2: Data 12

13 Look for adjustments in this order: 1.Strategy Implementation – Did I implement the strategies appropriately? 2.Are they appropriate strategies for the target group and the content? – Are other strategies needed in place of? In addition to? 3.LAST- is the target appropriate and realistic? 4.What additional checks for understanding do I need? What if my target group is not on track to meet the goal? 13

14 Determining Goal Attainment Step 1: Determine needs Step 2: Create specific learning goals based on pre- assessment Step 4: Monitor progress through on- going formative assessment Step 3: Create and implement strategies Step 5: Determine whether the goal was achieved 14

15 High Growth Medium Growth Low Growth Highly EffectiveEffectiveDeveloping/ Needs Improvement Ineffective More than 50% of target group exceeded goal with no more than 10% not meeting the goal At least 80% of target group met or exceeded the goal Less than 50% of target group did not meet goal and 50% or more met or exceeded the goal Greater than 50% of target group did not meet goal 3. How will my SMART goal be measured at the end of the year? 15

16 High Growth Medium Growth Low Growth Highly EffectiveEffectiveDeveloping/ Needs Improvement Ineffective More than 50% of target group exceeded goal with no more than 10% not meeting the goal 11 students exceed the goal and no more than 2 do not meet the goal. At least 80% of target group met or exceeded the goal 16 learners rate knowledge as moderate or high which represents 80% Less than 50% of target group did not meet goal and 50% or more met or exceeded the goal 10 learners meet or exceed the goal which represents 50% Greater than 50% of target group did not meet goal 11 students do not meet the goal which represents 52% Specialist Example: By the end of the 2012-2013 National Board support course 100% of teachers attending at least 15 of the class meetings will rate their knowledge as moderate or high in each of the area of the survey (see above). 20 teachers are in the anticipated target group 16

19 4. What data sources would be appropriate for … Progress monitoring goal progress throughout the year? TOOL- APS Comprehensive Assessment Inventory TOOL 19

20 One tool to support checking for understanding Think about In what ways will this help me check for understanding more frequently? Turn and talk 20

21 Activity 5: Plan to Check for Understanding 1.Identify (star/highlight) which strategies you currently use in your program (page 47-50). 2.Talk to your neighbor about how these checks for understanding lead to changes in your program delivery. 21

22 Next Steps Identify 1 or 2 checking for understanding strategies you do not currently use that you will incorporate in your work to achieve your SMART goal. Plan for utilizing 1-2 of these in your SMART goal work. 22

23 How does checking for understanding fit into the teacher performance standards? (1) Performance Standard 4: Assessment of and for Student Learning/Assessment The teacher systematically gathers, analyzes, and uses all relevant data to measure student academic progress, guide instructional content and delivery methods, and provide timely feedback to both students and parents/guardians throughout the school year. The educational specialist gathers, analyzes, and uses data to determine learner needs, to measure learner or program progress, to guide instruction, and to provide timely feedback to learners, parents/guardians, and staff. 23

24 How does checking for understanding fit into the teacher performance standards? (2) Performance Standard 4: Assessment of and for Student Learning/Assessment 24 Highly Effective Effective Effective is the expected level of performance. Developing/Nee ds Improvement Ineffective The educational specialist consistently demonstrates a high level of performance and/or takes a leadership role in gathering, analyzing and using data to guide instructional and program planning, and provides timely feedback to learners, parents/guardians and staff. The educational specialist gathers, analyzes, and uses data to determine learner needs, to measure learner or program progress, to guide instruction, and to provide timely feedback to learners, parents/guardians, and staff. The educational specialist is inconsistent in gathering, analyzing, and using data, and/or providing timely feedback to learners, parents/guardians, or staff. The educational specialist rarely uses data to measure learner progress, implement program planning, guide instruction, and provide timely and relevant feedback to learners, parents/guardians and staff.

25 5. Mid-year Conversation and Progress on Documentation Log Bring to the mid-year conversation items you have identified for your documentation log thus far. Be ready to share the description of the evidence and why you might include it. 25

26 Check for Understanding: Exit Ticket What is needed for my mid-year conversation? 26

27 To Do List – Prepare for mid-year conversation – Plan to use checks for understanding and be ready to share at ______ meeting 27

28 Arlington Public Schools will provide every student with highly effective educators that have the necessary tools to positively impact student learning and growth. APS Teacher Evaluation Vision Since 1999 28
