Observation and Feedback: Best Practice

Presented by: Bev Pratt, Chalkboard Project, and Julie Smith, Chalkboard Project

This series of three training videos will walk you through the observation and feedback process that is essential to gathering evidence for a professional growth and evaluation system. You will be familiarizing yourself with your standards of practice, gathering evidence towards standards of practice from observation, creating an evidence base to help provide practitioners with evidence-based feedback in order to promote a culture of learning and growth, creating summative performance statements based on standards to start the process of Inter-Rater Reliability and calibration amongst observers and evaluators which is key to a more objective and balanced formative and summative evaluation process.

Multiple Measures: Gathering Evidence

Presented by: Cec Amuchastegui, Chalkboard Project, and Erin Whitlock, Oregon Education Association

This series of four training videos will walk you through the development of an educator growth plan (including examples of professional and student growth goals), familiarizing yourself with your standards of practice, gathering evidence towards standards of practice from multiple measures including observation and artifact analysis, gathering evidence towards completion of goals, and creating an evidence base to help facilitate a more objective and balanced formative and summative evaluation process.
