End of Year Educator Evaluation Overview
Educator Self-Assessment (Form L) - The educator reviews all information and data collected during the year and completes a self-assessment for review by the evaluator. This self-assessment should focus specifically on the areas for development established in the goal-setting conference, and elements adjusted during the mid-year conference.
The educator will self-assess:
- Each SLO
- Educator Practice Goal
- Parent Engagement Goal
- *Whole School Indicator
This is an example of FORM L in PD360 for SLO #1. You will see a text-box for your self-reflection followed by the rating scale. Provide an overall assessment of your progress on SLO #1 using the guiding statements below within the text-box. Then, use the scale below to rate yourself on SLO #1. A definition of each scale indicator can be found below; as well as a video tutorial of how to access and complete Form L.
Watch this video to learn how to access and complete Form L.
The following guiding statements should be considered when completing the self-reflection write-up:
- provide your overall assessment of progress toward the goal/objective and/or action steps,
- describe what you have done that produced these results,
- describe what you have learned and how you will use it going forward
- what professional learning and/or other type of support would help you to achieve your goals.
When self-rating each SLO, use the following scale:
The next section is the Educator Performance and Practice Goal. When self-rating your Educator Practice Goal, use the following scale:
To obtain numeric information regarding your Educator Performance and Practice Goal, you will need to run an Educator Practice Report in PD360. The video tutorial below shows you how to obtain and use this report.
You can analyze this information first looking for Growth Over Time. Where Growth Over Time, or trend data, does not exist, you will want to simply calculate an Overall Average. The report below shows how to calculate the Overall Average for Domain 2 performance; and how to calculate the Growth Over Time, or trend data, for Domain 3 performance. Examples A and B below describe this further.
Example A (Overall Average using Domain 2 performance data): When analyzing this report, you will want to look at each of the domains, such as Domain 2 below, and their corresponding indicators (2a-2e). First look for Growth Over Time, or Trend Data. With the absence of trend data, you can now move to find the Overall Average. To do this, divide the Domain 2 Average (15.25) by the number of indicators in that domain (5) so that (15.25/5 = 3.1). 3.1 is your average for Domain 2. Doing this for each domain where trend data is not evident, then placing your domain average score into the chart below and calculating the Weighting to get the Weighted Score, will provide an Educator Practice Overall Average Score.
PLEASE NOTE, however, that other evidence outside of the numeric value should be considered when determining your Educator Practice self-assessment rating, which may alter your final level of performance; such as lesson and unit plans, SMART Goals, etc.
Example B (Growth Over Time, or Trend Data, using Domain 3 performance data): When analyzing this report, you will want to look at each of the domains indicator ratings, and before simply calculating each indicator average, you will want to consider the "trend data" and "growth model" perspective. For example, this domain varies significantly compared to Example A. In Example A, the scores were inconstant, lacking trend data. Conversely, such as in 3a, you can see that the "average" is 2.60, however the trend data would indicates consistent 3.0 (or Proficient level performance) based on the last three data points. Therefore, you would add 3.0 into the equation for 3a instead of 2.6. You would look at each of the domain indicators in this way to determine if performance would increase or decrease based on the growth model perspective. This is shown in the "Trend Data" column below. PLEASE NOTE, however, that other evidence outside of the numeric value should be considered when determining your Educator Practice self-assessment rating, which may alter your final level of performance; such as lesson and unit plans, SMART Goals, etc.
When self-rating your Parent Engagement Goal, use the following scale:
*The Whole School Learning Goal is a section on the self-rating form. Because of changes to the Educator Evaluation System and Development Plan this year based on the State Department of Education's flexibility waivers, you will not have to provide a self-rating in this area. As a result, your rating in this area will be the outcome of your building principal’s SLO rating as (Principal's Overall SLO Rating x 0.5) = Educator's Whole School Indicator Rating.
