Research tells us that employee evaluation systems work best when evaluation is not something we do to people, but rather when it is a shared process of adaptive learning and growth. An effective evaluation system allows employees to take responsibility for their own learning, growth, and performance.
Performance evaluation systems will be easier to implement in districts that have:
- Answered the WHY…connecting the educator evaluation system to the district’s vision/goals
- Reframed educator evaluation around the 10 Assumptions and 6 Principles of a performance-driven, research-supported system.
- Aligned their evaluation standards, tools, and processes district wide, for all educators in all roles.
- A proactive plan to provide targeted professional learning to help educators adapt and grow.
