The system is designed to address several key questions requiring action on the part of local education agencies in order to implement an effective, locally designed educator effectiveness system. These include:
- How do we effectively link educator performance to student learning outcomes?
- How do we weight and compile multiple data sources for different educators to produce an overall proficiency score?
- How do we ensure that student performance data is reliable, valid, and useful for measuring growth?
- How do we ensure that teacher performance data is reliable, valid, and useful for guiding professional development and practice?
- How do we obtain actionable data throughout the year to inform decision-making?
- Reliable and valid educator rating scales aligned to the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) Model Core Teaching Standards, the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Educational Leadership Policy Standards, and Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
- Reliable and valid measures of student progress in state-tested subjects;
- Reliable and valid measures of student progress non-state-tested subjects;
- An Evaluation Score Compiler that weights and automatically combines educator effectiveness indicators into a single score.
