The Educator Effectiveness System was designed for the purpose of promoting growth and professional development of educators that leads to improved student outcomes. Evaluators have extremely valuable roles in the evaluation process as facilitators of coaching conversations around reflective practices, as well as providers of formative feedback and direct support.
Evaluators should objectively evaluate current practice and provide valuable, respectful formative and summative feedback to inform professional growth. Evaluators of teachers and principals must hold an active administrator's license in the state of Wisconsin, as required within PI 34.
Evaluators of teachers must complete rigorous training and obtain certification in the 2013 Danielson Framework for Teaching. The training program and certification assessment is provided online in Teachscape Focus. Certification is valid for 4 years and is transferable between job placements. Calibration activities must also be completed in Teachscape Focus every semester between recertification.
