Organizing for Evaluations

When preparing to be evaluated (or when getting ready for the ProCert/National Boards), list all the criteria you’ll be assessed on and make a file for each part. As you teach and the year progresses, put copies of student work and other pieces of evidence (photographs, notes, etc.) into the appropriate file.

Standards and Data

So this is my life now – thinking and blogging about standards and data.

Here’s an idea about making sure you reach most (all?) standards and have evidence thereof: make a list of all standards (in a spreadsheet?) and write the summative assessments for each. Make sure grading is standards-based and then use the grades to collect data about who and how many have met which standards.
