What menus show up in eVAL for a teacher?
A teacher has four primary responsibilities when using eVAL for formative growth and evaluation:
- Conducting a quality self-assessment (according to the district’s selected instructional framework);
- Engaging in goal-setting;
- Interacting with the evaluating principal during the observation process; and
- Managing artifacts and evidence of professional growth, proficiency, and student achievement.
To carry out these responsibilities, a teacher interacts with menus for specific tasks/activities (shown below):
- Dashboard - The teacher can monitor activity in which s/he has engaged.
- Artifacts - The teacher uploads and describes resources that can be shared with his/her evaluating principal, and that might be used as evidence.
- YTD Evidence - The teacher manages resources that serve as evidence in his/her evaluation.
- Student Growth Goals - The teacher writes his/her own goals, as well as writes goals in response to the principal’s prompts.
- Observations - The teacher participates in the three events around the observation cycle.
- Self-Assessments - The teacher completes his or her self-assessment.
- Summative Evaluation - The teacher views and prints the summative scores of the evaluations.
- Resources - The teacher has access to pertinent resources that have been provided by the district or school administrator of eVAL.
