Watch a video preview of the State Model Online Performance Management System:
CDE is working in partnership with RANDA Solutions, Inc. (RANDA) to create an online performance management system to support districts in the implementation of the Colorado State Model Evaluation System. The development of the State Model Online Performance Management System will be completed in four stages, each defined as a module. The four modules are:
- Module 1: Creating web-based evaluation rubrics (the 50 percent professional practices)
- Module 2: Creating web-based way to capture the measures of student learning (50 percent student learning/growth)
- Module 3: Automating the overall calculation for the final effectiveness rating
- Module 4: Creating and automating reports to include useful and actionable feedback for educators
The State Model Online Performance Management System, pending no major development issues, will be ready for the 2014-2015 school year.* A beta-test will be conducted in spring 2014. The current development schedule anticipates Local Access Managers (LAMs) access in July 2014 to set up CDE identity management. (For more information on LAMs and their roles, please visit the CDE Identity Management webpage.) Educators and districts using the State Model Online Performance Management System are anticipated to be able to use the system in early August 2014. For more information, please dowload our fact sheet.
Status Update (as of January 2014)*
*All these dates are contingent on user feedback and development and product testing.
In May 2013, CDE asked educators invested in the Colorado Model Evaluation system to join the State Model Online Performance Management System Advisory Council to better inform the development of this tool. Advisory Council participants have had the opportunity to learn more about the online system development and participate in quarterly feedback sessions via webinar.
The beta-test application was available through Feb. 14, 2014 and is currently full.
As an integral part of the development process, CDE and RANDA are currently conducting a beta-test that will run through June 2014. Districts that are beta-testing the system will suggest improvements to the system for the statewide rollout and test and respond to needed changes. In the beta-test, participants will be simulating an evaluation cycle in a compressed manner (three months or less).
