Purpose of PVAAS Teacher Reporting Provide a teacher specific growth measure to be used as part of Pennsylvania’s Educator Effectiveness System Provide feedback to teachers regarding their influence on the academic growth of students Provide data for teachers and administrators to guide discussions about the academic progress of groups of students – Discussions between teachers – Discussions between teachers and administrators
PVAAS Teacher Reporting: One Source of Data Teachers yielding high growth can: Mentor beginning teachers Serve as Instructional Coaches Become lead teachers Serve as members of a school-wide planning committee Participate in curricular planning Serve on professional development committees Promote differentiated instruction Tutor students in need of extra support For teachers needing extra support in improving student progress Provide mentors for these teachers Provide support from Instructional Coaches and lead teachers Provide support for planning and preparation Align professional development needs to data Model differentiated instruction Offer opportunities for observing teachers yielding high growth with students
PDE Guidance PDE is developing statewide policy and guidance for PVAAS Teacher Reporting that fairly represents the unique schedules, instructional programs, and PA certified educator contributions to student growth in the tested subjects/courses where PVAAS reporting is applicable. PDE will provide flexibility and guidance for LEAs to locally address, within the state policy and guidelines, teacher attribution to student growth via PVAAS Teacher Reporting.
PVAAS: PDE’s System for Growth PVAAS uses the EVAAS methodology from SAS EVAAS for K-12 SAS EVAAS has been providing teacher level reporting since 1996 EVAAS methodology has been published, research- based, and peer-reviewed SAS EVAAS has 3 statewide implementations of Teacher Specific Reporting (OH, TN, NC + PA) + 24 regional & district implementations across the US – PA has been learning from other states and districts in the US
Two Resources: Summary of EVAAS Research on Teacher Effectiveness Share! – District and Building Administrators – Curriculum Directors – Special Ed Directors – HR Staff – Content Leaders/Specialists – Teachers – School Board
Questions for LEAs to Ask Now – to Plan Which permanent or temporary professional employees who hold a valid PA teaching certificate have full or partial responsibility for content specific instruction of assessed eligible content as measured by: PSSA in reading, math, science, or writing? Keystone exams in Algebra I, Biology, or Literature? There will be additional criteria to determine which teachers will have an eligible PVAAS score Example, minimum N count
PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting: Which Teachers? Math & Reading – Grades 4 through 8 Science – Grades 4 & 8 Writing – Grades 5 & 8 Keystone End-of-Course Exams – Algebra I – Biology – Literature Note: Pennsylvania’s Alternate System of Assessment (PASA) is not included in PVAAS analyses as there is a very low number of students tested statewide.

Data: Prepopulating PVAAS Roster System Email Address/PPID File PIMS Course/HQT File – Student-Teacher-Subject/Grade/Course – One “teacher of record” Additional teachers will not be in PIMS Course/HQT file linked to a student for subject/grade/course Anticipate increased alignment between PIMS and Educator Effectiveness/SPP and PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting
