||This is the one required student growth retraining course for teacher and administrator evaluators who are renewing their designations required to evaluate educators.
Participants will learn how to: 1. Use assessments and measurement models identified by the joint committee in determining the student growth attributable to individual teachers/principals and understand how different types of assessments are used for measuring growth; 2. Use data from the evaluation rubric, other evidence collected, and best practices relative to evaluating student growth to link teacher/principal and school-level professional development plans to evaluation results; 3. Create, in collaboration with teachers/principals, supportive, targeted professional development plans that consider past results, contribute to professional growth, and assist teachers/principals in aligning professional development and goal setting to school improvement goals; and 4. Communicate evaluation outcomes and findings in constructive and supportive ways that enable teachers/principals to set goals and improve practice. (Lunch is provided.)
NOTE: Participants will have to complete their A/D Component and send their completed E-Template, if used, to the presenter during the Academy for review and comment.
NOTE: Per Casey Wills at ISBE, any educator completing INITIAL evaluator certification between 9/1 and 12/31 MUST complete BOTH AA #1865 and AA #3000 REGARDLESS of previous completion of AA #3000 or attending the trainer refresher sessions this summer!
