||This is the one required student growth retraining course for teacher and administrator evaluators who
are renewing their designations required to evaluate educators. Participants will learn how to: 1. 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; 2. 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; 3. 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 4. Communicate evaluation outcomes and findings in constructive and
supportive ways that enable teachers/principals to set goals and improve practice. NOTE: Participants
will have to complete their A/D Component and send their completed E-Template, if used, to the
presenter during the Academy for review and comment.
Refunds will be issued only to participants who call the ROE seven (7) business days before the start date of the program or if the program is canceled.
