AA 3000 – Illinois Performance Evaluation Retraining: Student Growth
April 29 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
This is the one required student growth retraining course for teacher and administrator evaluators who are renewing their designations required to evaluate educators.
This one-day administrative academy focuses on the use of assessments and measurement models in determining student growth attributable to individual educators.
* This AA must be paired with 1 of the AAs focused on Professional Practice for the population you evaluate to fulfill the entire retraining requirements.
Participants will learn how to:
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;
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;
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
Communicate evaluation outcomes and findings in constructive and supportive ways that enable teachers/principals to set goals and improve practice.
The training aligns to the Illinois School Code competencies defined by Administrative Code Part 50, Section 50.420 (a-b).
