Rater Agreement in Washington State
To assist districts through the collaborative learning process, ESD 112 can provide information or supports for all the stages of implementation as defined by OSPI.
Understanding the “Big Ideas” of the Instructional or Leadership Framework.
- For Teachers: An Overview of Your District’s Instructional Framework. A one-day introduction to the structure of your district’s selected instructional framework.
- For Principals: An Overview of Your District’s Instructional Framework A two-day introduction to the structure of your district’s selected instructional framework.
This stage is the application of the framework as a formative tool through the use of self-assessment, goal setting, gathering evidence and using multiple measures of performance. OSPI has assigned districts to an Instructional Framework Specialist who can provide up to 24 hours of ongoing support for all who evaluate classroom teachers.
Utilizing the framework for summative purposes. Participants will explore ways to assess artifacts and observation data, provide high-quality feedback for growth and combine multiple measures of evidence into a summative score in order to maximize rater agreement.
Train the Trainer: Teacher Leadership Framework Training
ESD 112 is offering a Train the Trainer professional learning opportunity for the CEL5D and Danielson Teacher Overviews. It is recognized that although the six-hour Teacher Overview is required by the state, most districts lack the capacity to send their teachers to training during the school year due to sub shortages. As a solution, the TOTT is being offered statewide to assist districts in building internal capacity. Also, having a staff member in-district or school allows for a roll out that matches your district PD calendars, late starts, and early releases.
To take advantage of this opportunity, we ask that you select teacher leaders from your district who have strong communication skills and a willingness to train your teacher on the state-required Teacher Overview. Utilization of your 664 funds to provide compensation to your teacher is allowable.
Contact Kathy Whitlock to schedule this training for your district.
