How does a principal allow a teacher to score the summative evaluation?
The principal can engage in a dynamic activity with the teacher and allow the teacher to score the summative components. Ultimately, this can lead to a comparison of scores between the teacher and the principal, and they can dialog further about what constitutes quality teaching and learning. This article will provide the steps for a principal who wants to allow a teacher to score the components from the summative evaluation.
Note: the teacher's input will not be included on the final report. It will only be visible within the Evidence/Scoring screen when specifically selected.
Follow these steps:
When the principal is in the Summative Evaluation module for a teacher, s/he will see all of the tabs along the top of the module. The right end of the tab bar displays the following button:
a Sharing Sections During Draft button, which is white if no summative evaluation data has been shared with the teacher, or is black if the principal has shared any aspect of the summative evaluation with the teacher
Click on the button (whether it is white or black), and the Sharing dialog box will appear. Click on the green Setup Sharing button.
In the next window that appears:
- Click on the second button down (next to the Teacher Scoring Enabled option) and change it so that it is a green Yes.
- Then click on the green Save Options button.
When you return to the bar of tabs, the Sections Shared during Draft button will be black to indicate that some aspect of the summative evaluation data has been shared with the teacher. (It may have been black at the beginning of this process, if you have shared sections with the teacher already.)
