SURVEY 2019: OT & PT Evaluation System SURVEY 2019
Attention Wisconsin OTs, PTs and the school administrators who conduct evaluations. We need your feedback on how your district implements the different OT and PT evaluations, and it will also help us to more accurately compose the OT and PT Evaluation User Guide. Please complete the survey by Monday, February 4th. Thank you!
The Wisconsin OT and PT Evaluation Rubric is intended as a guide for practitioners to plan and implement therapy, and to reflect and apply the process to advance their skills. It is also designed to provide evaluators with an understanding of the individual domains and components, aligned to the corresponding levels of performance.
The rubric is not intended to be used as a stand-alone evaluation tool, rather as a part of the Wisconsin OT and PT Evaluation System. It is part of a collaborative effort to demonstrate an individual professional’s growth and development over time. We anticipate the OT and PT Evaluation User Guide will be available during the month of June 2019.
The rating scale is an optional tool for the evaluator to use when summarizing practitioner observations per domain and component and/or when recording the practitioner’s final evaluation.
Student or Program Outcomes (SPOs)
SPOs are rigorous, achievable goals developed by OT and PT practitioners and their evaluators, based on identified student or program needs across a specified period of time. OT and PT practitioners will develop one SPO annually, with a minimum of one to three SPOs available as evidence toward their final SPO score in their Summary Year, depending on how many years are in their Evaluation Cycle.

OT/PT Goal Setting
Completed annually by the practitioner.
Completed annually by the practitioner in collaboration with evaluator or peer/coach. Practitioner may choose to write a change goal for student learning or a program based on need and role of the practitioner.
Used to collect evidence from all observations throughout evaluation cycle. May also be used to collect evidence in unannounced observations, known as Mini-Observations, if appropriate to the practitioner role.
Completed by the practitioner and shared with the evaluator prior to the End-of-Cycle Conference.
Completed by the evaluator after reviewing all forms, observation evidence, practitioner artifact evidence aligned to rubric components, as well as practitioner self-scores and reflections. Evaluator documents summary practice component scores and a holistic SPO score on this form.
We recognize and extend thanks to the small writing group of statewide OTs, PTs, and Special Education Directors who committed extensive time, energy, and expertise to make this evaluation system available to OTs and PTs statewide.
