10Understanding DPAS II(R): Components I-IV What changed in ?Use of rubrics during the evaluation process to guide discussion and appraisalAddition of “expectations” and definition of recommendation versus expectationAdded classroom assessment criterion in Teacher and Specialist Components 1 and 3Shifted to Component 4 being assessed throughout the evaluation processCreated DOE Supports/Structures: DOE monitoring of DPAS II documentation, Development Coaches, & Expert Evaluators
11Understanding DPAS II(R): Components I-IV What’s new in ?Educators should continue to move forward with Components I-IV, building upon the rigor/focus from last year.Component V as described here today, and its overall impact on an educator’s evaluation, is the major shift in DPAS II (R) for
12Goal 2: Review the Policies and Implementation of Component V
13Background: How we got here… National Conversation…Race to the Top…Educator involvement…
14Understanding DPAS II(R): Component V Purpose/PhilosophyFocus on building a school climate where everyone is focused on the improvement of student achievement.Bringing back a focus on conferences and conversation between educators and administrators.
15Understanding policy and implementation for Component V. What’s New?Three Educator GroupsThree Measures
16Who are the educator groups? Teacher of Record – The teacher of record is a full-time teacher, as defined in the DPAS II regulation 106A (revised), who has been assigned the primary responsibility for a student’s learning in a course/class, provided the student has been enrolled at least 85% of the time that the class is in session.GroupsGeneralizations about the categoryGroup IAre you the reading and/or math Teacher of Record and give grades for at least 10 students in a DCAS – tested grade 3-10?Group IIAre you the Teacher of Record and give grades for at least 10 students at any grade level or subject other than DCAS reading and/or math?Group IIIAny educator who does not meet the criteria for Group I or Group II will defer to Group III
17ExamplesI am a third grade teacher of record for 22 students – which group?I am a ninth grade science teacher of record for 6 different classes – which group?I am a fourth grade special education teacher in a TAM classroom – which group?I am a second grade Music teacher who only reports “S” or “U” for students – which group?
18What are the three (3) types of Measures? MEASURE AMEASURE BMEASURE C
19Measure ABased upon DCAS instructional scale scores for reading and/or math in grades three (3) through ten (10)
20Measure B Two (2) different assessments External Assessment DDOE approved, standardized assessments that can be used at the discretion of the districtDIBELS, STAR Math, STAR ReadingInternal AssessmentDDOE approved, educator developed assessments specific to subject and grade levelPre/Post Student Assessments
21Measure C Growth Goals DDOE approved, educator developed goals Specific to content area and/or job assignmentIncludes a mix of: student growth and professional outcomes
22How do we match educator groups to the measures? Measure AMeasure BMeasure CGroup I50%Group IIGroup III100%
23Group I Educators and Measures Measure A – DCASMeasure B – External/InternalGroup I50%Group I Teachers:MUST use a minimum of two (2) measuresMUST use Measure A for all students assessed by DCAS in reading and/or math for grades three (3) through (10)MUST use at least one (1) Measure BMeasure A and Measure B weighted 50% each
24Group II Educators and Measures Group II Teachers:MUST use a minimum of four (4) measuresMUST use at least one (1) Measure B and one (1) Measure CMeasure B and Measure C weighted 50% eachMeasure B – External/InternalMeasure C – Growth GoalsGroup II50%
25Group III Educators and Measures MUST use a minimum of four (4) Measure C’sMeasure C weighted 100%Measure C – Growth GoalsGroup III100%
26ExamplesI am a third grade teacher of record for 22 students – Group 1, which measures?I am a ninth grade science teacher of record for 6 different classes – Group 2, which measures?I am a fourth grade special education teacher in a TAM classroom – Group 1, which measures?I am a second grade Music teacher who only reports “S” or “U” for students – Group 2, which measures?
27Other Considerations Alternative Internal Measures Internal Measure Rubric will serve as a guide to provide feedback about the alternative measure.Form must be submitted to DDOE for approvalAlternative Growth Goal MeasuresGrowth Goal Template used as a guide for development of alternative growth goal(s).
28DPAS II Ratings Remember… Component V acts as a gate-keeper Criterion RatingsUnsatisfactory, Basic, Proficient, DistinguishedComponent I-IV RatingsSatisfactory or UnsatisfactoryComponent V RatingsExceeds, Satisfactory, UnsatisfactorySummative RatingsHighly Effective, Effective, Needs Improvement, IneffectiveComponent V acts as a gate-keeper
29How will Measure A be rated? ExceedsSatisfactoryUnsatisfactory (with administrator discretion)Unsatisfactory65% or more of a teacher’s DCAS student growth targets are met50-64% of a teacher’s DCAS student growth targets are met35-49% of a teacher’s DCAS student growth targets are met (conference between administrator and teacher could provide option to upgrade to a “Satisfactory” rating)Less than 35% of a teacher’s DCAS student growth targets are met
30How are Measure A Growth Targets set? Growth Targets will be provided by the Department of EducationFor the school years, Growth Targets will be determined based on DCAS instructional scale score growth achieved by “similar students” in and school years.Similar students are:Students in the same grade and subjectSame fall scoreSame ELL (English Language Learner)Same SWD (Student with Disability); or,Non-SWD/ELLStudents who achieve PL4s in the spring will count as having met their growth targets for that school year.
31How will Measure B and C be rated? ExceedsSatisfactoryUnsatisfactoryThe agreed upon “exceeds” target is met or surpassed.The agreed upon “satisfactory” target is met or surpassed, but the “exceeds” target is not met.The agreed upon “satisfactory” target is not met.
32How are Measure B and Measure C Growth Targets set? Based on professional conversations between the administrator and educatorAgree upon measures usedAgree upon a “satisfactory” target and an “exceeds” target
33Example for Measure BIn the Fall, administrator and educator agreed upon:Grade 2 ELA pre/post assessment80% of the targeted group will show improvement in fluency within the last six weeks of the school year as compared to the first six weeks of the school year.Achievement ranges:Exceeds: 90% of all students received a 70 or higher on the spring post-test compared to 55% receiving a 70 or higher on the fall pre-test.Satisfactory: 80% of all students received a 70 or higher on the spring post-test compared to 55% receiving a 70 or higher on the fall pre-test.Version
34Example for Measure CIn the Fall, administrator and educator agreed upon:Standard 5 – Implementation (for access to learning)Indicator – Absences Due to IllnessStudents will demonstrate decreased absenteeismTarget Goal: 50% improvement – Number of students showing improvement at the end of selected time divided by total number of students in cohortAchievement ranges:Exceeds: 60% of targeted number of students showing improvement at the end of the selected time period compared to the beginning time period (i.e., current school year compared to previous school year or identified marking period)Satisfactory: 50% of targeted number of students showing improvement at the end of the selected time period compared to the beginning time period
35Component Five Ratings Possible Rating CombinationsOverall Component V RatingExceedsSatisfactoryUnsatisfactoryUnsatisfactory – administrator can upgrade to “Satisfactory” rating
36Summative Ratings Total # of Satisfactory ratings in Components I-IV Component FiveSummative Rating4/4ExceedsHighly EffectiveSatisfactoryEffectiveUnsatisfactoryNeeds Improvement3/42/4Ineffective1/40/4
37How does my Component V rating impact my Evaluation in a year when my evaluator does not complete a Summative Evaluation for me?Novice educators receive a full evaluation cycle annually (complete Summative). A previous year's Summative Evaluation rating of "Needs Improvement" or "Ineffective" mandates a Summative Evaluation for that educator be completed the following year. LEAs have the option of conducting Summative Evaluations for all educators on a annual basis.
38How does my Component V rating impact my Evaluation in a year when my evaluator does not complete a Summative Evaluation for me?For Experienced educators, Regulation 106A denotes that only when a Summative Evaluation is completed can Component V impact the educator's summative rating. Component V is conducted, calculated and shared for each educator each year even when a Summative Evaluation is not being completed.The Department, and LEAs, can promulgate programs that utilize the Component V rating (standing alone) such as the state’s Talent Retention/Attraction program(s).
39Goal 3: Understand Tools and Resources for Implementing Component V
40DPAS II(R) Component V Process Teacher of Record The teacher of record is a full-time teacher, as defined in the DPAS II regulation 106A (revised), who has been assigned the responsibility for a student’s learning in a course/class, provided the student has been enrolled at least 85% of the time that the class is in session.Version
41DPAS II(R) Component V Process Measures / Target Process Review: Educator Groups • Group 1: Includes any teacher who instructs reading and/or mathematics in DCAS grades three (3) through (10). • Group 2: Includes any teacher who reports student grades in any grade or subject where DCAS reading and math is not administered. • Group 3: Includes any teacher who generally does NOT report student grades and any educator who cannot otherwise be categorized into Groups I or 2.Version
42DPAS II(R) Component V Process Educator Groups 1 & 2 ONLY: Roster Verification Due to the nature of Measure A & B and their alignment with student growth, it is necessary to ensure valid class rosters.Educator Groups 1 & 2 will be measuring student growth across all classes, a class and/or a cohort of students within a class.To ensure an accurate account of the students an educator is responsible for, it is necessary to verify an educator’s roster.Version
43DPAS II(R) Component V Process Educator Groups 1 & 2 ONLY: Roster Verification Teacher reviews class rosters for all classes in PerformancePLUS.If a student is listed on roster and is not attending class, the teacher will notify the school administrator in writing and request the change(s) be made in eSchool.Remember, a student attending a program such as SCOPE or PEAK cannot be removed from a teacher’s roster even though they are not attending class.If this is the case, the teacher should print out roster, note the discrepancy including the reason, and discuss with administrator.Version
44DPAS II(R) Component V Process Measures Selection Review: GuidelinesGroup 1 educators:MUST use Measure A and at least one (1) Measure BGroup 2 educators:MUST use a minimum of four (4) measuresMUST use at least one (1) Measure B and at least one (1) Measure CGroup 3 educators:MUST use Measure CVersion
45DPAS II(R) Component V Process Review: Measures Measure A:Based upon DCAS instructional scale scores for reading and/or mathematics in grades three (3) through ten (10)Measure B:Comprised of two types of alternate measures: 1) internal assessments that are educator-developed and DDOE-approved specific to subjects and grade levels; and 2) external measures that are DDOE-approved and can be used at the discretion of each district.Measure C:Growth goals are educator-developed and DDOE-approved goals specific to content areas and job assignments.Version

56DPAS II(R) Component V Process What does a good Student Growth Target look like?Version
57DPAS II(R) Component V Process Student Growth Target Guiding Principles 1Setting ambitious, achievable goals for students is good instructional practice. Goals establish a vision for what students should be able to accomplish at the end of the year.2Strong goals share certain characteristics. However, no single goal or assessment is appropriate for all grades, content areas, or students.3Therefore, it is not the intent of the state to prescribe how educators set student growth targets. This practice should be driven by those closest to students.Version
58DPAS II(R) Component V Process What is a Student Growth Target? A Student Growth Target is a measurable goal for student achievement over a given period of time.Strong student growth targets share three key characteristics:Priority ContentFocuses on learning content that is aligned to state and/or common core standards (when applicable).RigorRepresents an appropriate amount of student learning (challenging, yet attainable) for the specified interval of instruction and specified set of students.High-Quality EvidenceAssessment provides data from the beginning and end of students’ time with teacher and is based on a common assessment when available.Version
59A good goal statement is one that is… DPAS II(R) Component V Process What Do Strong Student Growth Targets Look Like?Goal Statement:Increase the percentage of students who are proficient (above 70%) in Integrated Mathematics I from 33% in September, 2012 to 75% in June, 2012, as measured by the Department of Education Internal Measure B: Integrated Mathematics I. A good goal statement is one that is…SpecificMeasurableAppropriateRealisticTime-boundVersion
60DPAS II(R) Component V Process What Do Strong Student Growth Targets Look Like? During the school year, my sixth grade physical education students will improve performance by 20% on each of the Presidential Fitness Test sub areas.Specific: Focused on physical education, specifically the Presidential Fitness sub areasMeasurable: Identified Presidential Fitness Test to be used to assess goalAppropriate: The teacher teaches the content and skills contained in the Presidential Fitness Tests.Realistic: The goal of increasing student performance by 20% is realistic. It is not out of reach and yet not too easy.Time-bound: Goal attainment can be addressed by the end of the year with the final Presidential Fitness Test.Version

62DPAS II(R) Component V Process SCENARIO: Hypothetical Classroom Data Suppose you’re teaching mathematics to a class of 20 fourth grade students. You know that students from this school have had trouble with measurement items on the state test in previous years, and you’re wondering whether you need to do more teaching in this area. After reviewing Measure B for fourth grade mathematics, you discover that the assessment targets the Domain: Measurement and Data. You received approval from your evaluator to use the Internal Measure developed by educators to identify the strengths and/or weaknesses of your students in measurement, and administered the assessment to your entire class. Your students obtained the scores shown in Table 1.Version
63DPAS II(R) Component V Process SCENARIO: Hypothetical Classroom Data Version
64DPAS II(R) Component V Process Fall Conference The teacher and administrator will meet (Fall Conference) to discuss the growth expectations for students.Using the Measures / Target Form, the teacher and administrator will agree upon the identified areas of need and focus for the school year.Version

67Why SunGard? Pupil Accounting contracted in1999 with SunGard eSchoolPLUS and IEPPlusStudent Longitudinal Data Systems Grant$5 million for three yearsPerformance PLUS products for curriculum and assessment managementComponent VGrowth ModuleDelivery mechanism
68Performance Plus software The software is hosted at SunGard and is currently being set up so that Delaware may use itThe goal is to be live by August 27, 2012This week in the DOE we are setting up agents which will synchronize the eSchoolPLUS databases with the Performance PLUS databases
69Component V Assessments SunGard has received most of the assessments from DOE and are entering them into the Performance Plus softwareThe goal is to be live by August 27, 2012The DOE will work with contributors to verify the assessments in the software before going live
70Growth Goal ModuleThe Growth Goal Module is currently being programmed into Performance PLUS and will be available by August 27
71ImplementationPhase 1 is going on now with the purpose of delivering the Component V assessments in SeptemberPhase 2 will begin in October. This will be the full implementation of Performance Plus (Assessment Builder, Performance Tracker, Curriculum Connector)The planning has not begun with SunGard yet on Phase 2
72TrainingTechnical training schedule has been sent out to the districts and charters:There are two parts to the training:printing, scanning, and uploading bubble sheets; and entering growth goals (early September)bubble sheet scanning and uploading onsite assistance; and entering growth goals assistance (mid to late September)
73CostThe DOE will provide the districts and charters $3.00 per student to defray the costs of printing and scanningYou may use these funds as you wish for this project
74Access to Performance Plus There will be a link in eSchoolPLUS or Teacher Access Module which will take you to Performance PLUSThere is no need to log into Performance PLUS separately
75Bubble SheetsThe DOE decided to use bubble sheets this September for the Component V assessments because there was not enough time to set up online testingHowever in Phase 2 implementation you will have the ability to use the online moduleThe bubble sheets and test booklets will be printed out in your school/districtThe teacher/specialist will log into Performance Plus, pick the class, and print the bubble sheets and test bookletsThe printer must be a laser printerThe DOE is currently testing printing and scanning and will send an update next week
76Scanners The DOE is not recommending a particular scanner or vendor I have tested scanning and have been successful. But I have not gotten to the point of saving to a file on a computerBasic scanner settings:scan black and white imagessave as TIFF format200 DPI
77HelpdeskThe helpdesk for Performance Plus will be the same as eSchoolPLUS or IEPPlusDistrict and Charter pupil accounting coordinators will be the primary contactFor policy questions please refer to your curriculum officeFor assistance during the September Component V assessments we will provide the pupil accounting coordinators with a phone number to directly call SunGard if our helpdesk cannot assist you
78Scheduling in eSchoolPLUS For teachers/specialists to print out bubble sheets they must have a class and students enrolled in that classThe DOE is currently in the process of assisting the districts and charters in scheduling primarily elementary schools and special schoolsThis must be completed before you can use the Component V module in Performance PLUS
