Evaluation Snapshot

In Massachusetts, teachers have a multifaceted evaluation system including:
  • Goal setting
  • Evidence collection
  • Observations
  • Evaluator write-ups
  • Narratives
  • Test scores
As we collect evidence in this information age, much of what we do can no longer fit into a binder since we regularly teach and learn with video, websites, blog posts, online documents, and presentations.

One way to efficiently demonstrate evidence is to write a letter to your evaluator highlighting how you met your student/professional learning goals and the standards. Then you could simply use a chart like the one below with the standards, elements, indicators and links to your online evidence.

This might be an efficient, low cost, less paper way to demonstrate a year's work for both the educator and his/her evaluator. What do you think?
