Final Employee Evaluation Rating & Score

Updated: 12-6-16

Technical Assistance Paper: Teacher Evaluation Process 2015‐2016 – Student performance

 

Updated: 9-24-16

Each employee's final evaluation is the result of the combining or averaging of the two main components of the employee's: professional practices and student growth (with each component being weighted for the final evaluation):

1. Employee professional practice rating

This rating is assessed with the Danielson framework as is applied via our Employee Appraisal Rubric through the observation/interaction process. The final appraisal scores are based on the last observation where a given component area was assessed.

The scale and rules for maintaining a given effectiveness rating are as follows: Updated: 12-15-16 

Professional Practice Rating:

Raw Score

Highly Effective (4 points)

No Unsatisfactory rating *, No Needs Improvement rating

94 - and above

Effective (3 points)

No Unsatisfactory rating *, No more than 4 Needs Improvement ratings**

77.5 - 93.9

Needs Improvement / Developing (2 point)

No Unsatisfactory rating *, No more than 4 Needs Improvement ratings**

74.5 - 77.4

Unsatisfactory (1 points)

1 or more Unsatisfactory rating*, 5 or more Needs Improvement ratings**

22 - 74.49

 

If a teacher's final rating is rated Unsatisfactory in any component at the end of the school year, the overall evaluation preliminary rating will be Unsatisfactory.

 

** If a teacher's final rating on five or more components at the end of the school year is rated Needs Improvement, the overall evaluation preliminary rating will be rated Unsatisfactory.

 

 

Updated: 4-25-16 ** If a teacher's evaluator is a START CT, and the teacher has five (5) or more components' final rating at Needs Improvement / Developing, the START CT will make a recommendation to the START Review Board to determine if the teacher is to be offered an annual contract for the next school year.

 

 

2. Student learning growth rating

Portions of each employee's evaluation are based on a measure of student performance. This rating is assessed through the value-added models adopted by the state along with other measures approved by the EEA, ESP and the district. The value-added models create an "expected performance level" for each student based on his prior academic achievement and other variables. Each teacher's rating in this area is derived from the percent of students who meet or exceed their expected performance level.

 

VAM (Value Added Model) is strictly calculated based on FSA ELA, FSA Math, and State Algebra EOC.

Other Student Growth Measure Models utilize assessments approved by the state and district.  The results of each of the non VAM assessments are scaled each year based on the FSA and State Algebra EOC results from the same year.


For this reason, the student learning growth scale is measured on a 100 point scale (though it only counts 33% of the overall evaluation). The scale for student growth data is as follows: Updated: 4-25-16 

Student Growth Scale

Non-VAM Student Growth Measure will be scaled based on VAM scores for the current school year.

 

3. Overall effectiveness rating Updated: 4-25-16 

An educator's overall effectiveness rating is the average of the two parts of the evaluation: the professional practices and student learning growth portions. For each portion of the evaluation, the rating achieved corresponds to a number (4, 3, 2, 1) that is used to calculate the sum total of the two halves of the evaluation, to yield a final, summative rating, as shown below:

Final Rating

For example, an employee with a: Updated: 4-25-16 
Highly Effective Employee Appraisal Framework Score (4 points), and an Highly Effective PDP Score, and an Effective Student Growth Score (3 points)
would be calculated as follows: (4*0.65) + (4*0.02) + (3*0.33) =   3.67 points for a summative rating of Highly Effective. 

 

Professional Practice 65% PDP 2% Student Growth 33% Final Summative Rating 100%
4 x 0.65 = 2.60 4 x 0.02 = 0.08 3 x 0.33 = 0.99 3.67 = Highly Effective
