  1. Educator Evaluation Systems & Effectiveness Labels Venessa Keesler, Ph.D. & Carla Howe Office of Psychometrics, Accountability, Research & Evaluation Michigan Department of Education

  2. Overview of Current Plan and Issues • November release date for the aggregate effectiveness labels by school (number of teachers reported as highly effective, effective, minimally effective, ineffective) • Key important messages: • This is the FIRST YEAR; 800+ different systems (we have data to show this) • Districts did MASSIVE amounts of work to accomplish this • We do not believe that huge numbers of MI teachers are ineffective

  3. Current Circumstances Our current legislation has allowed for local systems of evaluations, which has given districts flexibility to design systems that work best for them. • Over 800 systems across the state • Varying degrees of implementation across the state Public reporting of effectiveness labels is required by SFSF • Scheduled for release in November via • Teachers labels reported in aggregate by school (number of teachers in each of the four categories) • Principals/Administrators reported at the district level.

  4. Important Context for the 2011-12 Results • First year of implementation of NEW systems based on student growth measures • State provided student growth measures are only available in grades 4-8 for reading and mathematics • Varying components across systems (i.e. between districts) • Varying percentages of growth across systems (i.e. between districts) • Some districts on prior contract (i.e. No new system, but reporting labels was required)

  5. K-12 Educator Evaluation Survey • 792 districts completed the survey about their Evaluation systems from April to August • Required to be completed by SFSF • Results provide valuable insight into local systems • The types of frameworks used • The % of student growth as a component (law states “significant”, but it isn’t defined until 2013-14) • Types of growth measures included • Types of decisions informed by the results of evaluations

  6. 54 districts with a prior contract did not have to incorporate growth or a new system in 2011-12 50% of reporting districts # of districts Other Frameworks reported include: Charlotte Danielson Framework AND a local component, Teacher Advancement Program, My Learning Plan, 5 Dimensions of Teaching and Learning, Local District or ISD framework, McREL, STAGES, Kim Marshall Rubrics PRELIMINARY/DRAFT FINDINGS

  7. Appropriate given the FIRST year of local evaluation systems # of districts

  8. # of districts Other ways growth data are measures include: Combination of data from multiple assessments, pre/post test data, combination of local, state, national measures, benchmark testing, several sources as agreed upon in the professional growth plan

  9. # of districts Others types of assessment data reported that factor into educator evaluations include: AIMSweb, DRA, Ed Performance Series, Fontes & Pinnell, STAR Reading and Math, CBM for Math, DELTA Math

  10. # of districts Others types of assessment data reported that factor into educator evaluations include : AIMSweb, DRA, Ed Performance Series, Fontes & Pinnell, STAR Reading and Math, TerraNova, ITBS, DELTA Math

  11. # of districts Others types of assessment data reported that factor into educator evaluations include : AIMsweb, Ed Performance Series, STAR Reading and Math, Study Island

  12. # of districts Others types of assessment data reported that factor into educator evaluations include : common assessments, district benchmark assessments, Scantron Performance Series PRELIMINARY/DRAFT FINDINGS

  13. # of districts Others types of decisions include: Assignment to committees or roles beyond the classroom, classroom support and assistance, layoff/recall/transfer, mentoring, staff placement, scheduling, setting improvement goals, merit pay

  14. Other Factors Reported As Part of Evaluations PRELIMINARY/DRAFT FINDINGS

  15. Overview of Statewide Results Understanding educator evaluation labels in MI

  16. Caveat…. • Labels are not EQUAL across districts • However, we know that people will want this type of analysis and we want it done appropriately

  17. Statewide Results • IMPORTANT NOTES: • Based on the labels as determined by the local evaluation system; rigor of label designation is not consistent across districts • THERE is differentiation in label reporting  now, 22% of teachers are reported as “highly effective”  moving away from a satisfactory/unsatisfactory system • We do not believe that 1% of teachers labeled as “ineffective” is unreasonable in the first year

  18. Impact of growth • Law required districts to implement systems based in “significant part” on student growth • How do the labels look different when the district used growth in greater percentages?

  19. Growth and eval labels More differentiation in labels when growth counts at a higher rate LESS differentiation without growth

  20. Distribution of Labels By Percent of Evaluation Based on Growth

  21. Key Takeaways • Distribution of labels (i.e. number of teachers in each category): • Is appropriate in Year 1 of implementation • Reflects differentiation (esp highly effective/effective) • BUT we also see that systems using higher proportions of growth are able to make those differentiations more accurately • The statewide evaluation system will move us toward more growth measures at higher rates

  22. Who is more likely to be rated as highly effective or effective? Teachers more likely to appear in highly effective category (versus other three) and in effective category (versus other two): • Female teachers • Those with more time in the same district • Teachers with a professional certificate (as opposed to all others) • Those with a master’s degree or higher • Teachers in districts with growth over 40% in their system

  23. Who is less likely to be rated as effective or highly effective? • Older teachers • New teachers (those in their first year of teaching) • Mathematics, science, social science, special education and world language teachers (relative elementary teachers) • Teachers in systems where growth is less than 10% of the evaluation system

  24. Relationship between effectiveness labels and Priority/Focus/Reward • Important to remember: • A school-level designation does not mean that all teachers within that school are in a given level of effectiveness • Example: In a Priority School, there will be effective teachers as well as ineffective teachers

  25. Effectiveness Labels in Priority, Focus and Reward Schools Notes: There are significantly more teachers reported as ineffective and minimally effective in Priority Schools than the statewide number, and in Focus or Reward schools.

  26. Key Takeaways from the Results • These results are reasonable for the first year; represent a huge effort on the part of districts • There is differentiation in the system; there will be more as growth becomes a higher component; but we still do not believe large numbers of Michigan teachers are “ineffective”
