Levels of Performance Distinguished Accomplished Emerging Unsatisfactory Distinguished performance describes professional teaching that engages students to be highly responsible for their own learning. Performing at this level involves contributing to the professional learning of others through teacher leadership. Accomplished performance describes professional teaching that exhibits mastery of the work of teaching while improving practice and serving the professional community. Emerging performance represents teaching that demonstrates knowledge and skills to implement essential elements albeit not always successfully at times. Unsatisfactory performance describes teaching that does not convey sufficient understanding of concepts or the successful implementation of essential elements.

What is a Student Growth Percentile? • We use prior test data to determine

What is a Student Growth Percentile? • We use prior test data to determine how much students have grown over time. • We use all available data (started with 3 years of data) • We try to paint a picture of what a low, typical or high amount of growth looks for each grade. • This allows to look at 2 different things – How much growth did I see this year (How much growth? ) – How much growth do I need to make to be on target in 3 years or by 11 th grade. Whichever comes first. (Is it enough growth? ) • This amount of growth is called a Student Growth Percentile – Think of this like height or weight percentiles. – But it’s not status (how tall I am). It’s growth (how much more/less did I grow than other kids like me).

Is it enough growth? How much growth?

Is it enough growth? How much growth?

From Student to School Growth – For whom can we calculate growth? » Only

From Student to School Growth – For whom can we calculate growth? » Only students in grades 4 – 11, in tested subjects » Students must have at least 2 consecutive scores » We examine RLA and Math – How do we aggregate growth to the school? » Examine students by grade and by content for the state » Identify the amount of growth for each student in each grade across the state (this number is referred to as a Student Growth Percentile) » Identify all of the students in the school » Group all students in the school together, regardless of grade » Take the median (middle) growth percentile of all students in a school for each content.

How the 5% is calculated • • There are 3 categories of growth: – Low – Typical – High We split low into 2 categories for the educator evaluation system. This gives 4 categories – Very low (unsatisfactory) – Low (emerging) – Typical (accomplished) – High (distinguished) The 5% is for both Math and Reading performance on WESTEST 2 – 2. 5% for Math – 2. 5% for Reading For each 2. 5%, schools are assigned a point value for each category of growth that is observed.
