Evaluation feedback
Sharing models and processes of appraisal (within and across
settings) - share the results, the successes and the issues still to be
further worked on
Your appraisal . What is the process? How does it link to the
conceptual frame?

Evidence of practice

•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Indicators criteria to show what good practice looks like
Peer appraisal
School Professional Learning Groups (PLGs)
Peer observations and feedback
E-portfolios
Reflective journals
Teacher portfolios
Feedback from learners
Using video evidence

Sharing models and processes of appraisal
So if effective appraisal is what we are aiming at, how far
have you got?

Alignment of systems and processes
Developing evaluative capability in your place
Strengthening an open to learning culture
Promoting self and joint responsibility
Your own appraisal (think about Professional Standards and
the RTCs)
Work with someone who has similar responsibilities as you.
Talk about your process for your own appraisal:
• To what extent does your process parallel the process used
for your staff?
• What , if anything, needs to be different?
• To what extent does it reflect the conceptual frame for
appraisal
So if effective appraisal is what we are aiming at, how far have you
got?

Alignment of RTCs and Professional Standards
Evidence of practice that demonstrates the RTCs
Examples of practice
Which RTC could you explore with the teacher based on the
example?
Analysing the example of practice: significant content
How does this meet the
RTC/Tataiako?
Reflection: What does this mean for
next steps teaching and learning?
Identification: What stands out? Where are the
patterns? For me, my group of akonga and
individual akonga/priority learners?
From everyday practice: What is available as evidence?
Evidence : A range of sources and perspectives
Sources
Learner
outcomes,
RTCS and
Tātaiako
Compilation
of examples
of practice
over time
Perspectives
What evidence of meeting the RTCs would the teacher bring to
the appraisal discussion?
Check this against the sources of evidence triangle
What might I do with my evidence?
I need to:
• Know where the evidence can be found (planning,
assessment information…)
• Compile some of it in some way to show my learning over
time (sound bites, video, photos, notes)
I can:
• Map it to the RTCs/Tātaiako/ our school indicators of
effective practice
• Bring the evidence I have to an appraisal meeting
• Talk about my practice and its effect on my learners
• Affirm what is going well and identify my learning needs

Self and joint responsibility
Awareness
• growing awareness changes the game. It moves us from
being acted upon to being in a position to act on the issue or
challenge.
Responsibility
• commitment and performance arises from choice
• taking responsibility and ownership for change
In your PLGs discuss
What evidence might teachers use to identify the learning needs
of their learners and consequently for themselves?
How would you help a teacher to discover their blind spot?
Goal…
When setting goals a clear and motivating endpoint in relation
to the needs of priority learners must be identified by the
teacher and appraiser.

By........ (timeframe)
I am/have........ (changed practice)
With the intention that/so that........ (learner outcomes/benefits)
Smarter goals
Using the goal frame how might these general intentions be expressed
as smarter goals
1. I want my teachers to do a better job of teaching as inquiry
2. I want my teachers/learners to be more independent
3. I want my learners to be able to socialise with each other
4. I want all of my learners to accelerate their learning in reading
5. I want the learners at this school to choose my subject for NCEA
6. My assessments and planning will show how I am meeting the
needs of my learners
7. My assessments will capture the continuity and complexity of
learning
8. Your choice…
Demonstration - goal setting session
Do the goals reflect…
1. The learning needs of learners?
2. The learning needs of teachers?
3. The outcome that will be achieved if the goal, is met?

What will the
outcome be if I

and the

The key questions for the focusing inquiry are:
What is important (and therefore worth spending time on),
given where my learners are at?
What strategies (evidence-based) are most likely to help my
learners learn what they need to learn?
What will I notice about my changed practice and the impact on
my learners?
Inquiry is about problem solving (an evaluative process)

What is the criteria for success?
How will I know I am meeting the criteria?

What is the relationship between what I am striving to achieve and my
current practice?
