Before We Get Started
Brainstorm with your district members:
• How are you measuring student growth
in your district?
• What assessments are you using?
Targets
I can explain why student growth
goals are included in the new
teacher effectiveness system.
 I can communicate and support the
student growth goal setting process.
 I can identify the current status of
implementation of student growth
goals in my district/school and use
available resources to determine
next steps.

Why Measure Student
Growth?
Elementary and Secondary
Education Act (ESEA)
Flexibility Waiver
Six Components
• continuous improvement of instruction
• meaningful differentiation of teacher/principal
performance using at least three performance levels
• multiple measures of effectiveness including use of
student growth data (both state standardized tests
and formative growth measures that are rigorous
and comparable across schools in a district) as a
significant factor
• regular evaluation
• clear and timely feedback to include opportunities
for professional development
• use of the system to inform personnel decisions
Kentucky Commitments
• No public reporting of individual teacher
data
• Not supporting student growth as a single
measure for personnel decisions
• Agreement that an educator effectiveness
model focused on continuous
improvement is only beneficial if the data
and information from the system are used
to improve instructional practices leading
to improved student learning outcomes
“Learning goals give meaning to
and act as a healthy check on the
traditionally untethered tendency
for public institutions to be
satisfied with processes, regardless
of outcomes.”
~Schmoker (1999, p.30)

“If a goal of evaluating teachers is
to ensure student learning, then
student learning must be a major
part of what’s measured.”

Getting a Baseline Measurement
When getting a baseline measurement, a
teacher would need to take into account:




Previous years’ data
Conversations with previous teachers
Formative assessment processes
Student work
In order to determine what assessment needs
to be administered to gather evidence of
students’ current level of performance
Which assessments work best for
goal setting for student growth?
Assessments

Be rigorous –
 Have high expectations for progress
toward college and career readiness
 Provide data toward mastery of
overarching skills/concepts based on
standard(s)
 The measures in state non-tested
subjects and grades are as rigorous
as those in tested subjects and
grades.
Assessments
Provide data between two points
in time (pre-/post-assessment)
 Provide baseline data
 Provide post data by end of goalsetting period
 Be comparable across similar
classrooms within or across
districts

•
Not a unit assessment
•
Addresses skills and concepts students
need to develop across the year
Let’s look at the list that you created at the
beginning of our time together today.
What assessments are being used in your
district that meet this criteria?
Rigorous?
Overarching skills or concepts?
In assessed and non-assessed areas?
Data between (at least) two points?
Comparable across similar classrooms?

Which assessments might your
teachers use for goal-setting
for student growth?
“Just about everyone realizes that if a teacher
does a great instructional job, that teacher’s
students will usually perform better on tests.
It’s the other side of the equation that’s less
often understood, namely that how a teacher
tests — the way a teacher designs tests and
applies test data — can profoundly affect how
well that teacher teaches.”

Conversations to have…..
1. Examine Assessments
Do we have quality assessments that
 provide data to measure student growth
meet the waiver criteria
-rigorous and comparable
-two data points in time
2. Plan for inclusion of all subject/content areas
 Common assessments
 Unique circumstances
3. Provide Training
Assessment Literacy
Identifying needs/choosing appropriate assessment
Data analysis
Use of formative assessment
SMART Goal Process
4. Utilize PLCs to support Teacher Effectiveness System
How can you structure time and facilitate
conversations to support leader and teacher
understanding of student growth?
