1 Copyright © Tulsa Public Schools 2011 © 2012, Tulsa Public Schools The Tulsa Model TLE Observation and Evaluation System / Process EVALUATOR TRAINING – 2012 – Segment 1 Background / Setting the Stage

2 Importance of Each and Every Slide… 2 Each slide represents an EQUALLY important component of the Tulsa Model system and process. One missing component can derail the process.

3 A CAUTION that needs to be repeated / reinforced throughout presentations to all audiences. The Tulsa Model was approved by the OSDE and must be followed as written. Specifically, material or substantive alteration to the Model is not permitted. 3

4 Training Overview and Format Ask @ any 4

5 Training Overview and Format The Training is divided into SEGMENTS which are designed to provide natural breaks from one topic to another. Additionally, each SEGMENT is presented within a separate PowerPoint file, with a file name identifier, e.g., PP1 Background & Setting the Stage GS. 5

6 Evaluator Training Overview Day 1Day 2Day 3 Segment 1 – Background and Setting the Stage Segment 2 – The Rubric Segment 3 – Observation+ and Evaluation NOTE… Segment scheduling can alter this 3 day “projected” topic overview. Trainer judgment will prevail providing the best instructional design. However, the sequence cannot be altered. Segment 4 – Conference, Push Pins and Personal Development Plans (PDP) Segment 5 – Getting the Rankings Right – Calibration via Videos Segment 6 – Calibration (continued) and Preparation for Modeling and Presentations Evaluator Modeling and Presenting Segment 2, Critique follows Evaluator Modeling and Presenting Segment 3, Critique follows Evaluator Modeling and Presenting Segment 4, Critique follows Evaluator Test / Wrap-up 6

7 Why is Oklahoma adopting a new teacher evaluation system? 7

8 (a)We need a better method of identifying and describing effective teaching. (b)We need a better method of identifying and describing ineffective teaching. 8

9 Why Teacher Effectiveness Matters 9

10 Effective Teaching / Student Achievement “Truly effective teaching… could overcome student indifference, parental disengagement, and poverty --- and, in fact, is the key to enabling children to rise above those circumstances.” 10

11 What’s Important To Know? Teacher involvement is key. Teachers are our talent...use the evaluation system to support them. Evaluators’ time is precious. Keep it simple… Measure what matters (the characteristics that impact student achievement). 11

12 Key Features of the Tulsa Model Developed with and by Oklahoma teachers Research-based Independently validated Feedback and support-focused Rich, but workable 12

13 Tulsa Model Evaluation System Observations Evaluations Conferences Feedback / Support 13

14 Research-Based and Validated Rubrics incorporate best practices associated with higher student achievement. – Kathleen Cotton of NWREL (Northwest Regional Educational Lab) – Harvard researcher Thomas Kane The TLE system and its indicators are empirically associated with student achievement. (It measures what matters.) – MET Validation Engine Project – University of Wisconsin findings 14

15 Measures What Matters Value-Added plus Achievement Value-added analysis is a statistical method that helps educators measure the impact schools make on students' academic progress rates from year to year; shows the impact teachers and school have on students’ academic performances; when combined with achievement provides a more robust, comprehensive picture of impact upon student learning. 15

16 SDE statements that provide evidence of improved student performance Influence classroom instruction. Facilitate continuous improvement of all teachers. Encourage ongoing professional growth of all educators. Focus professional development around the need of individual educators. Prioritize research-based instructional practices proven to improve student achievement. 16

17 Tulsa’s focus for accomplishment… Create a common framework and language for evaluation. Provide educators with clear expectations about what is being assessed, as well as standards that should be met. Send messages about what is most meaningful. Increase the consistency and objectivity in evaluating professional performances. 17

18 Tulsa’s focus for accomplishment… Provide educators with information about where they are in relation to where they need to be for success. Identify instructional practices that drive student achievement. Give educators guidance for evaluating and improving their work. 18

19 Statutory Requirements TLE will have a five (5) tier rating system: Ineffective Needs Improvement Effective Highly Effective Superior 70 S.O. § 6-101.16 (SB 2033) 19

20 Statutory Requirements 50% of the evaluation ratings will be based on rigorous and fair qualitative components. Qualitative assessment must be evidence- based and include observable and measureable characteristics that are correlated to student performance. 70 S.O. § 6-101.16 (SB 2033) 20

21 Statutory Requirements Teacher Qualitative Characteristics Organizational and classroom management skills Ability to provide effective instruction Focus on continuous improvement and professional growth Interpersonal skills Leadership skills 70 S.O. § 6-101.16 (SB 2033) 21

22 Statutory Requirements 50% of ratings will be based on quantitative components. 35% based on student academic growth using multiple years of standardized test data 15% based on other academic measures 70 S.O. § 6-101.16 (SB 2033) 22

23 Statutory Requirements “Weight” of Rankings… 23

24 Statutory Requirements Local board policies regarding evaluations must be based on TLE by 2013-2014 school year. Data generated from the TLE will be used to drive educational decisions that include: Career teacher status Mandatory exiting of ineffective teachers 24

25 Statutory Requirements Comprehensive remediation plan / instructional coaching are required for teachers rated ineffective or needs improvement. Reduction in Force policies will use teacher effectiveness as the primary basis for releasing teachers. 25

26 OSDE Pilot Year 2012-13 ALL districts (all schools and all teachers) will participate in the TLE Pilot Year. During the 2012-13 school year, evaluation scores and data from the 3 piloted evaluation systems shall not be used by a school district as the basis of an employment decision UNLESS the school district has adopted the piloted evaluation system as its official teacher evaluation policy / system for the district (replacing the prior evaluation system). 26

27 OSDE Pilot Year 2012-13 Districts will provide input and feedback regarding the frameworks to the OSDE, with subsequent reporting to the TLE Commission and the State Board. All data will be analyzed to determine measurement of effective teaching and each model’s ability to scale up for statewide implementation. 27

28 Pilot Year Timeline… Jan to Aug ‘12 28

29 Pilot Year Timeline… Aug ‘12 to Jun ‘13 29

30 MONITORING TPS will collect feedback and monitor trainings provided by its authorized third- party providers to ensure fidelity to the framework Third-party trainers will offer additional customized trainings to individual districts. Feb-May 2012June 2012-March 2013Ongoing EVALUATOR TRAINING Five mandatory days of training for evaluators: o 2 days of foundational and process training o 1 day of calibration training o ½ day of PDP writing o ½ day of supplemental training o 1 day of reinforcement training to fine-tune skills PLANNING Informational sessions describing the Tulsa TLE framework provided across the state Training of certified third-party trainers Planning and preparation for summer trainings TLE Training Overview 30

31 TLE Training Timeline * Additional customized trainings available through certified third-party providers 31

32 What We Have Learned… 1.The Tulsa Model is a performance- based evaluation SYSTEM and has an adherence PROCESS. 2.The Tulsa Model is controlled by Statutory provisions. 3.The evaluation data from the 3 frameworks will NOT be used for employment decisions… unless the local Board adopts the relevant model as its official teacher evaluation policy for the district. 32 CURRENT TULSA MODEL
