The 5-Step Cycle
The 5-Step Cycle is the heart of MA's educator evaluation framework. It positions educators as the drivers of their evaluations by prioritizing self-reflection and goal setting. Being cyclical reiterates that, like students, educators should have continuous opportunities to learn and grow as professionals.
Below are key ESE resources associated with each step in the cycle to assist educators and evaluators throughout the process.
