4 Meeting Chapter 49 Requirements Basic Skills-PPST Reading, Writing and Math (entry into Ed. Program) Basic Skills-PPST Reading, Writing and Math (entry into Ed. Program) General Knowledge- Fundamental Subjects: Content Knowledge (K-6 & K-12) General Knowledge- Fundamental Subjects: Content Knowledge (K-6 & K-12) Academic Content- Subject Areas Specialty Principles of Learning and Teaching- Pedagogical Skills

5 Assessment Choices Pennsylvania reviewed options --- Went with a district completed inventory rather than paper/pencil Praxis test.

6 New Forms Address Other Chapter 49 Requirement Instructional I to Instructional II Assessment Form Instructional I to Instructional II Assessment Form (PDE-427)…..resulting from the Semi-Annual Employee Evaluation Form for Instructional I Teachers (PDE-426) Semi-Annual Employee Evaluation Form for Instructional I Teachers (PDE-426)

9 DEBE 5501 New Forms 5501 Assessed: -Personality -Personality -Preparation -Preparation -Technique -Technique -Pupil Reaction -Pupil Reaction New PDE-426 and 427 Assess: I. Planning and Preparation II. Classroom Environment III. Instructional Delivery IV. Professionalism

10 Who’s Using PDE 427 After Sept. 2004?   Teachers with Instructional I issued after 9/1/01 – by September ’99 regulation requirements.

11 Who’s Using PDE 427 After Sept. 2004? Earlier Instructional I’s from 1987 regulations if required by schools

12 PDE 427 Changes What? Instructional I to II Assessment Form - required as part of Instructional II application as of September 1, Instructional I to II Assessment Form - required as part of Instructional II application as of September 1, Staff with Instructional I certificates, dated September 1, 2001 and later, must be evaluated to meet PDE-427 requirements.

15 PDE 426 Similarities and Differences

16 Both PDE 426 and 427 Look at 4 categories and aspects of teaching: Planning and Preparation Classroom Environment Instructional Delivery Professionalism

17 PDE 426PDE 427 Optional form Can continue to use PDE 5501 or PDE approved locally developed form. Mandatory form to be used when recommending for Instructional II. (Sept. 2004)

18 PDE 426 and 427 Connection PDE 426 Semi-Annual Evaluation of Instructional I teacher in 4 categories; Used 2 times a year for 3 years (at least). Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory Rating PDE 427 Overall Assessment of the 6 (or more) PDE 426 forms & the categories findings. Used for Instructional II recommendation by Assessor and Superintendent

19 PDE Connection PDE 426 Teacher’s Performance Criteria in each category contains content at the level of an initial instructor. PDE 426 Teacher’s Performance Criteria in each category contains content at the level of an initial instructor. Initial instructor will be gaining further skills over each of the 3 or more years.
