60 percent: Measures of Teacher Practice (MOTP)

All teachers receive:

  • Assessment of their practice using Charlotte Danielson’s 2013 Framework for Teaching, including a greater emphasis on components of teaching related to their classroom environment and instruction.
  • Multiple classroom observations by their principal or other administrator, with teachers having a choice between two options for length and frequency of observations.
  • Review of up to eight artifacts (or documents) demonstrating their efforts to plan and prepare instruction and participate in their professional community.
  • Feedback on all observations and artifacts of teacher practice.
  • Student Feedback via the Advance Student Survey (for teachers in grades 3-12 only; will not count towards annual rating in 2014-15 school year).
