Resources for Teacher Evaluations

The NMTEACH Summative Report has been expanded with more detailed information to better understand how to use the evaluation as a professional development tool.

The NMTEACH District Educator Effectiveness Summative Teacher’s Report 2014-2015 is available to principals in electronic format.

Each teacher’s report contains four color pages. In order to avoid additional costs to the school, the reports are being printed by the district. The goal is to have the reports delivered to the schools this week. At minimum, teachers will get a summary page. Principals will let teachers know the process for distribution and review at their school.

The APS Educator Effectiveness Plan is composed of:

  • Student achievement
    (K-2 label says DIBELS but data based on DRA, EOC with 100 possible points means you were awarded points based on the Q1 growth from 2013-2014 School Report Card)
  • Observation of Domain 2 & 3
  • Multiple Measures consisting of Domain 1 & 4 and Attendance.

The report will have a summary page that contains sub-scores for each area of the evaluation and a total score with the corresponding overall effectiveness rating.

In addition to the summary page there is a glossary of terms page and pages with

  • a chart of your specific value added score and what groups of students were used each year to determine the score and a narrative on how to interpret the chart
  • a scatter plot specific to your students showing prior achievement compared to growth and a narrative on how to interpret the scatter plot
  • a graph comparing your average raw scores in Domain 2 & 3 and Domain 1 & 4 to others in your school, district, and state and a narrative on how to interpret the graphs
  • a graph showing strengths and improvement areas based on your scores
  • a graph comparing your attendance to others in your school, district, and state and a narrative on how to interpret the graph.

Completion of the 2014-15 Evaluation Process

To complete the evaluation process for the 2014-2015 school year, teachers and principals will sign the NMTEACH District Educator Effectiveness Summative Teacher’s Report 2014-2015. The signed original will be sent to Human Resources and will become a part of the teacher's permanent personnel record.  Principals will keep a copy of the summary page and teachers will keep a copy of the summary page and the three informational pages for their records.
