40 percent: State and Local Measures of Student Learning (MOSL)

Every teacher will have two measures of student learning, each worth 20 percent of the overall rating:

  • State Measure – Selected by the principal, this measure is based on student growth on state assessments (whenever available) or results on other assessments with comparable rigor taken by their students.
  • Local Measure – Recommended by a school committee appointed by the principal and UFT Chapter Chair and approved by the principal*, each teacher’s local measure will be based on student growth on assessments and growth measures selected from a menu of approved options  for each grade and subject.

 

* If the Committee and principal do not agree on measures, the local measure for all teachers in the school will default to schoolwide growth on the State assessments administered in that school.
