Special Educator Evaluation Resources

Under the MA Educator Evaluation Framework, all educators receive two ratings: a Summative Performance Rating Download PDF Document  Download MS WORD Document and a Student Impact Rating Download PDF Document  Download MS WORD Document. Performance ratings are based on common Standards for Effective Teaching and Administrative Leadership, and Impact Ratings are determined using information from multiple measures of student learning, growth and achievement.

Because of the complex job responsibilities of many special educators, the evaluation of these educators within the Framework can represent a unique set of challenges and opportunities. The resources on this page are designed to support an effective and meaningful application of the Educator Evaluation Framework to Special Education administrators, teachers, and SISP educators. All resources can also be found on the MA Educator Evaluation website.
