Student Performance Category
Consistent with research and best practices, the Department believes that well-designed and implemented evaluations are an important tool to help support educator growth and development. With this goal in mind, the measures that are used as part of an annual evaluation should provide useful information to district administrators and the educators who are being evaluated that helps support educators and leverage their expertise.
The required subcomponent of the Student Performance category for all teachers is a Student Learning Objective (SLO). SLOs are developed locally, consistent with a goal-setting process that is developed by the Commissioner. Principals will have either an SLO or an input model for the required Student Performance category.
