Oregon Framework for Teacher & Administrator Evaluation and Support Systems
Undertaking the work of designing, implementing, and monitoring an effective evaluation and support system for educators is both complex and time consuming; however, based upon the powerful correlation between teacher and principal effectiveness to student learning and growth, this work is imperative and of the utmost importance.
The Oregon Framework for Teacher and Administrator Evaluation and Support Systems has been updated to reflect the changes brought about by the passage of ESSA and recommendations from the Educator Effectiveness Workgroup. Districts should use this version of the Framework to guide their evaluation and support systems beginning this school year.
In June 2017 the state Board of Education adopted revisions to OAR 581-022-1723, which describes the requirements for teacher and administrator evaluation and support. These revisions were informed by recommendations provided by the ESSA Educator Effectiveness Work Group
. The following guidance is provided to aid districts in their planning for evaluations for the 2017-18 school year.
This PowerPoint describes the five required elements of teacher and administrator evaluation systems as outlined in the Oregon Framework.
The Oregon Matrix may be used by districts in determining the summative score for an educators evaluation. In the Oregon Matrix, Professional Practice (PP) and Professional Responsibilities (PR) intersects with Student Learning and Growth (SLG) to identify the educator's Professional Growth Path (Facilitative, Collegial, Consulting, Directed) and summative performance level.
The state adopted Model Core Teaching Standards and Educational Leadership/Administrator Standards define what teachers and administrators should know and be able to do to ensure that every student is ready for college, careers and engaged citizenship in today’s world. Districts are required to build their evaluation and support systems using these adopted standards.
Oregon’s framework for evaluation is designed to assess teacher and administrator performance with respect to the Model Core Teaching Standards and Educational Leadership/Administrator Standards (i.e., standards of professional practice). To assess performance, evaluators use a rubric.
