Student Learning Outcomes: DRAFT Guidance
Step 2: Determine how student learning is currently measured in your district
Teachers use a variety of assessments/measures to assess student learning every day. They use the information to inform instruction and assign grades to students. Districts are encouraged to conduct an assessment inventory to identify what is being used to measure student learning and what assessments are appropriate to include in an educatorís body of evidence for evaluation. Once the assessment inventory has been conducted, districts can use the results to identify where additional assessments are needed in Step 3.
Tools/resources to assist with Step 2:
Assessment Inventories: The assessment inventory template is created for use in a traditional elementary, middle school and high school models. The inventories allow educators to determine what assessments they currently have in place and to identify areas where there may be gaps. This is a first step that district/schools can take in order to use multiple assessments for educator evaluation. Districts are encouraged to synthesize the inventories and may prioritize assessments that are used for progress monitoring as a part of their Unified Improvement Plans (UIP).
