2014-15 APPR Ratings
Below are 2014-15 Education Law §3012-c APPR data for teachers and principals.* Data has only been included for the 728 districts, BOCES, and charter schools with an approved APPR plan for the 2014-15 school year. Each classroom teacher and building principal received an overall rating of Highly Effective, Effective, Developing, or Ineffective (HEDI). This rating was based on a single composite effectiveness score (ranging from 0-100 points) that was calculated based on the scores received by the teacher or principal in each of the three subcomponents (State Growth or Other Comparable Measures, Locally Selected Measures, and Other Measures of Educator Effectiveness).
The figure below shows the percentage of educators in each rating category for the three subcomponents and the Overall Composite score: Overall Composite Rating (first row), State Growth or Other Comparable Measures (second row), Locally Selected Measures (third row), and Other Measures of Educator Effectiveness (last row).
OVERALL COMPOSITE RATING
Each classroom teacher and building principal received an overall rating based on a single composite effectiveness score that was calculated based on the scores received by the teacher or principal in each of the three subcomponents.
STATE GROWTH OR OTHER COMPARABLE MEASURES RATING
Education Law §3012-c required that 20% of a teacher's or principal's evaluation be based on State Growth or Other Comparable Measures (State-provided growth scores or Student Learning Objectives [SLOs]). A State Growth or Other Comparable Measure was the measure of student growth.
LOCALLY SELECTED MEASURES RATING
Education Law §3012-c required that 20% of a teacher's or principal's evaluation be based on Locally Selected Measures. The Locally Selected Measure could either measure growth or achievement from a selection of available assessment options.
OTHER MEASURES OF EDUCATOR EFFECTIVENESS RATING
Education Law §3012-c required that 60% of teacher and principal evaluations be based on multiple measures of teacher/principal effectiveness consistent with standards prescribed by the Commissioner in regulation. This included the extent to which the educator demonstrated proficiency in meeting New York State's teaching or leadership standards.
