Educators for Excellence - Beyond Satisfactory: A New Teacher Evaluation System for New York

Educators for Excellence - Beyond Satisfactory: A New Teacher Evaluation System for New York | @iSchoolLeader Magazine | Scoop.it

In 2010, New York passed a law to overhaul the teacher evaluation system before 2013. By law, student achievement will have to make up 40 percent of a teacher’s yearly evaluation: 25 percent will be value-added data, or the amount of growth
a teacher’s students experience while in her classroom, and the other 15 percent will be another measure of student achievement, still left to be collectively bargained. Most of the details are yet to be finalized, but in the meantime, the New York City Department of Education and The New Teacher Project have collaborated on a pilot evaluation program that has been tested in a few city schools. Beyond the initial law, however, nothing is set in stone.

East Haven schools invest in reading technology

East Haven schools invest in reading technology | @iSchoolLeader Magazine | Scoop.it
Reading specialist Gina Tomassi sits with second-grader Isaac Florentino for a quick reading evaluation, listening to him read a short story about a riverside village.

 

She’s conducted these informal, frequent assessments countless times with other students in her career, having nailed down a stop-watch monitoring, hand-tapping, note-taking routine that certainly seems a challenge for the uncoordinated or inexperienced multi-taskers. But on this recent morning at D.C. Moore Elementary School, it’s all done with the touch of an iPad.
