West Springfield's Directory of Evidence Form
Template used by educators and evaluators to develop a "list" of anticipated evidence discussed during the goal-setting and plan development step of the 5-Step Cycle. The template identifies the Standard and allows the educator and evaluator to write in the Indicator and provide a bulleted list and a brief description of the artifacts that will be collected over the course of the evaluation cycle.

District Implementation Surveys

Implementation Survey for Principals/Administrators
Designed to provide schools and districts with information about the status of their educator evaluation implementation. Originally developed by SRI International, an independent non-profit organization studying implementation of the new Educator Evaluation framework in Massachusetts, the surveys have been adapted into tools for schools and districts to use to capture educator perceptions about and experiences with the evaluation framework. Information from these surveys can be used to target district resources and supports where most needed to strengthen implementation.

Note: ESE is providing these surveys to districts as optional tools. Schools and districts may implement these surveys "as is" or adapt them to better fit their purposes. ESE is not collecting any data related to these surveys. ESE can make the surveys available to districts and schools through SurveyGizmo. If you have a SurveyGizmo account and would like to request access to the surveys, please email EducatorEvaluation@doe.mass.edu.
