1 LOUISIANA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Compass: Louisiana’s Educator Support & Evaluation System Louisiana Reading Association Meeting April 21, 2012

2 2 Unprecedented Progress Percentage of Students at Basic and Above ( ) 46 Percent Increase in Percentage of Students at Grade Level.

3 3 Subgroup Performance: ELA Percent Basic and Above* Achievement Gaps Have Narrowed Significantly. *First Time Testers and Full Academic Year: 1999–2001 Grades 4 and 8; Grades 4, 8 and 10; Grades 3-8 and 10 Unprecedented Progress

4 4 Of 100 entering Louisiana High School As Freshmen…. Only 70 will graduate from high school in four years. 49 will enter college within one year. (In or Out of State) Fewer than 19 will finish their degree within six years. The Challenge

5 Goal : Provide all students with knowledge and skills to attain a college degree or succeed in a career. Challenge: How do we get there ? 5

6 6 Two Core Needs: Shift what we expect of students (CCSS) Shift teacher practice to align with this change (COMPASS)

7 Educator Support & Evaluation (Compass) 7

8 Why Focus on Educator Support & Evaluation? Educator Support & Evaluation One study found that Dallas students who start 3 rd grade at about the same level of math achievement… After 3 EFFECTIVE Teachers After 3 INEFFECTIVE Teachers …may finish 5 th grade math at dramatically different levels depending on the quality of their teachers. Original analysis by the Education Trust.

9 Educator Support & Evaluation Policy Requirements at LEA Level: Act 54 Evaluate teachers and administrators annually, with 50% of evaluations based on student growth; Provide professional development and intensive assistance to educators, based on individual areas of need; and Use effectiveness data to inform human capital decisions. 9 Louisiana Department of Education

10 Educator Support & Evaluation Policy Requirements at LEA Level: Bulletin 130 Use value-added model (VAM) to measure student growth, where available; Use Student Learning Targets (SLTs), based on applicable common assessments, to measure student growth where value-added data are not available; and Use COMPASS or another state-approved rubric to measure teacher/leader professional practice. 10 Louisiana Department of Education

11 What Does This Look Like For a School Leadership Team? Educator Support & Evaluation Set Goals -For educators -For students Observe Teacher Performance Provide Timely Feedback and Aligned Support Evaluate Performance -Student Growth -Prof. Practice Use Data to Inform Human Capital Decisions 11 Louisiana Department of Education

12 Educator Support & Evaluation Two Groups of Teachers GradesContent Areas 4 th - 8 th ELA, Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies 6 th -9 th Algebra I, Geometry Teachers Using Value-Added Data: Teachers who do not teach these grades or content areas are considered teachers of Non-Tested Grades and Subjects (NTGS) and will use SLTs to measure student growth. Teachers Using Student Learning Targets (SLTs): 12 Louisiana Department of Education

13 Goal-Setting Educator Support & Evaluation Set Goals -For Educators -For Students With NTGS Teachers: Ensure teachers set SLTs for student growth. Evaluate quality of SLTs With ALL Teachers: Set Professional Growth Goals Identify objectives and strategies to achieve them. During the goal-setting phase, school leadership teams will: 13 Louisiana Department of Education

14 More on Student Learning Targets Educator Support & Evaluation 14 Louisiana Department of Education What is a Student Learning Target? An expression of expected student growth over a given period of time. What makes a good Student Learning Target? 1.Content is aligned to appropriate standards 2.Goal is rigorous, given students’ baseline data 3.Evidence of student growth is strong and based upon common assessments or other valid assessments, where available

15 Student Learning Target Exemplars Educator Support & Evaluation 15 Louisiana Department of Education U.S. History At least 21 out of 25 students achieve a score of 65 out of 80 or above on the End of Course Assessment. Early Elementary Reading/ELA Students will increase an average of 10 words per minute over their baseline median score on the Oral Reading Fluency Assessment. Special Education: Significant Disabilities The student will increase his language arts skills as evidenced by an increase from 9 points to 11 points on the Staugler’s Literacy Rubric by the end of the IEP year.

16 Resources on Student Learning Targets Educator Support & Evaluation 16 Louisiana Department of Education In May, the LDOE will make available: A list of recommended common assessments; A guidebook on the Student Learning Target process; An initial library of model Student Learning Targets; and A revised rubric for rating Student Learning Targets.

17 Goal-Setting Decision Points Educator Support & Evaluation Which common assessments should be selected to measure Student Learning Targets? To what extent should Student Learning Targets be standardized across the district? The school? 17 Louisiana Department of Education

18 What Does This Look Like For a School Leadership Team? Educator Support & Evaluation Set Goals -For educators -For students Observe Teacher Performance Provide Timely Feedback and Aligned Support Evaluate Performance -Student Growth -Prof. Practice Use Data to Inform Human Capital Decisions 18 Louisiana Department of Education

19 Observation/Feedback Educator Support & Evaluation During the observation/feedback phase, school leadership teams will: With ALL Teachers: Observe Instruction Document observed performance corresponding to performance standards. Share Feedback Share observations with teachers, including areas of strength and recommendations for improvement. Provide Targeted Support Aligned professional development and support to identified areas for improvement. 19 Louisiana Department of Education

20 Additional Policy Guidance: Observations Educator Support & Evaluation One formal observation: includes viewing a complete lesson and pre/post observation conferences One informal observation School leadership team members can be certified to conduct evaluations; additional staff can be leveraged to support observations 20 Louisiana Department of Education

21 Compass Model Observation Rubric: Modified Danielson Framework Educator Support & Evaluation Rationale for selecting Danielson: Narrow number of performance standards to focus on core competencies. Move to a 4 point scale to make effectiveness levels more distinct. Leverage resources available nationally. 21 Louisiana Department of Education

22 Compass Model Observation Rubric: Modified Danielson Framework Educator Support & Evaluation Selected Components of Danielson: 1c: Setting Instructional Outcomes 2c: Managing Classroom Procedures 3b: Questioning & Discussion Techniques 3c: Engaging Students in Learning 3d: Using Assessment in Instruction 22 Louisiana Department of Education

23 Observation/Feedback Decision Points Educator Support & Evaluation Which tool will our LEA use for observing and evaluating teacher and leader professional practice? State-Adopted COMPASS Rubric (to be released 4/23) TAP Instructional Rubric (current TAP districts only) Alternate Rubric (must be approved by the LDOE) 23 Louisiana Department of Education
