Galileo Instructional Effectiveness Technology

Galileo K-12 Online contains a flexible instructional effectiveness system. With its easy-to-use technology, Galileo provides support to districts and charters as they develop and implement local instructional effectiveness initiatives. 

Included in the Galileo instructional effectiveness system are educator rating scales aligned to the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTasc) and Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISSLC). Additionally, the state, local, or with permission, third party rating scales may be imported for use in Galileo. 

Galileo is capable of coupling data from student assessments with that of specific educator assessments, and combining assessment results into a single rating score. This is accomplished using the Score Compiler component of the Galileo instructional effectiveness system. Data from multiple sources (e.g., student performance data, educator proficiency ratings, surveys) can be combined and weighted to generate an individual instructional effectiveness score. The scores can be generated at the teacher, school, or district level and are accompanied by a detailed explanation of how the scores were compiled. 

Instructional effectiveness data from Galileo can be used to inform professional development for the purpose of enhancing teaching and leadership skills and elevating student performance. To learn more about Galileo instructional effectiveness technology, schedule a Galileo Overview.

The Score Compiler widget combines district-determined indicators of student achievement with district-determined indicators of instructor proficiency along with other indicators. Click to enlarge image.
