Rubric(s) Rubrics based on evaluation criteria centered around districts instructional framework(s) Summative Rating Evaluation Criteria 1.High Expectations 2.Effective Teaching Practices 3.Recognizing Individual Student Learning Needs 4.Focus on Subject Matter 5.Safe Productive Learning Environment 6.Use of Multiple Student Data Elements to Modify Instruction 7.Communicating with Parents and School/Community 8.Exhibiting Collaborative and Collegial Practices Evidence/Measures and Methodology Classroom Observation Self-Assessment Student Surveys Portfolios Instructional Artifacts Student Performance Measures
Slide 5 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION OSPI/TPEP Steering Committee Will Provide: A set of rubrics defining performance levels (1,2,3,4) for each of the eight criteria for teachers and principals A mechanism to aggregate scores on individual criteria to a summative rating (1,2,3,4) Districts will need to add what measures of evidence (observations, test scores, portfolios, surveys) will be used in determining performance levels
Slide 6 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Educator Evaluation Measures: It Takes Many Pieces… Self-Assessment & Reflection Perception Survey Data Student Work Samples Student Learning/ Achievement Data Peer Evaluation Portfolio Assessments Planning Classroom Observation
Slide 7 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Classroom observations Portfolios of student work Students performance data – Classroom – School – District – State – May include teachers performance as part of a grade level, subject matter, or other instructional team Self-assessment and reflection Student survey data Teaching artifacts – lesson plans SSB 5895/ E2SSB 6696 and Teacher Evaluation The Sandbox
Slide 8 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Highlights of SSB 5895 Student growth data must be a substantial factor in teacher and principal evals, and be included in at least three of the eight criteria. Issue #1: Vertical scaling of student test scores Issue #2: Collective bargaining ramifications Issue #3: Can include team data in individual teacher evaluation The four ratings are named: Unsatisfactory, Basic, Proficient, and Distinguished. 9/1/12 OSPI must identify three instructional frameworks. OSPI also must set up a process for approving "minor modifications or adaptions to one of the approved frameworks. 12/1/12 OSPI must adopt rules (WACs) for calculating summative ratings for the preferred instructional frameworks. 12/1/12 OSPI must adopt rules that provide descriptors for each of the summative ratings.
Slide 9 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Highlights of SSB 5895 ( continued ) A continuing contract (tenured) teacher with five years experience who receives a "2" rating in two of three years must be non- renewed. The TPEP Steering Committee is given multiple tasks (e.g., refine tools, examine implementation issues) necessary to implement the evaluation system. Supt. Dorn must give update reports on TPEP implementation annually through Districts have three years (2013–14, 2014–15, and 2015–16) to have all cert teachers evaluated on the new comprehensive system; provisional teachers and those with unsatisfactory ratings on the old system must be included in the group that is subjected to the comprehensive evaluation.
Slide 10 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Highlights of SSB 5895 ( continued ) After phase in, all teachers must be evaluated at minimum once every four years on the comprehensive system. Those on a focused evaluation must be give a summative rating based on method adopted by OSPI for each of the three frameworks. All evaluators (principals and those who evaluate principals) must undergo appropriate training. A professional development plan that includes online tools will be developed by OSPI if funds are provided by the Legislature. Beginning in 2015–16, evaluation ratings must be used in the process of determining RIFs and assignment/transferdetermined through bargaining.

Slide 20 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Federal Rules and State Testing Only reading and math for Grades 3–8 and high school, plus Grades 5, 8, and 10 for Science are required by USEd. USEd does not require a link between high school exams and graduation but about half of the states require some form of exit exams. We currently spend $43/student in testing (federal and state funds) more than most states. OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION
Slide 21 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Federal Rules and State Testing Education Week, October 2011 The Truth About Testing Costs By Bill Tucker OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION
Slide 22 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION SBAC Timeline
Slide 23 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Current Testing System Cost of COEs will jump to $10M–$20M per test per year in 2013–15 biennium Reading and Math: Grades 3–8 and 10 Science: Grades 5, 8, 10 Writing: Grades 4, 7, 10 Cost: $43/student/year SBAC/CCSS Testing System English/Language Arts and Math: Grade 3–8 and 11 * Cost: $20/student/year NOTE: Science exams are required under ESEA but are not included in SBAC * 11 th grade to measure college and career readiness. We are working with higher ed to explore the possible use of these measures as an alternative for college placement (or entrance).
ESEA Flexibility Update OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION
Slide 25 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION ESEA Flexibility Waiver Alternative to ESEA reauthorization. Available November 2011, February 2012, September states approved from November submission. WA is one of the 26 states that applied in February. Peer review process expected to be completed by May. Benefits: AYP rules and procedures are eliminated upon waiver approval. Choice letters not necessary in 2012–13. SES set-asides not required in 2012–13.
Slide 26 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Waiver Requirements Principle 1: Career and college expectations for all students. Common Core State Standards adoption SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortiumtest ready 2014–15 Principle 3: Supporting effective instruction and leadership. E2SSB 6696 and Teacher/Principal Eval Process (2011) SSB 5895 (2012) Principle 4: Reducing duplication and unnecessary burden.
Slide 27 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Waiver Requirements ( continued ) Principle 2: State-developed differentiated recognition accountability and support Reward Schools Highest performing schools High-progress schools Will use cohort-based school improvement data when available Priority Schools 5% lowest performing Title I and Title 1-eligible schools with less than 60% graduation rate Like current SIG process (will add writing and science in 2013) Must use up to 20% of district Title I allocation to develop a school improvement plan that focuses on improving academic achievement Focus Schools 10% of Title I schools with highest proficiency gaps Title I high schools with less than a 60% graduation rate Must use up to 20% of district Title I allocation to develop a school improvement plan that focuses on closing identified gaps. (based on SBE WA Achievement Awards including writing and science)
Slide 28 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Waiver Requirements ( continued ) Principle 2: State-developed differentiated recognition accountability and support (continued) Annual Measurable Objectives Using 2011 as a baseline, set benchmarks that will cut proficiency gaps in half by 2017 for every WA school. No sanctions required, but the expectation is that SIPs would include strategies to close gaps. N size = 20
Slide 29 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) WA has opted to establish AMOs as equal increments set toward the goal of reducing by half the percent of students who are not proficient in all AYP sub categories by fall 2017 (within six years)
