Data Fields for Teacher/Principal Eval Survey

Instructions for completing the Teacher and Principal Evaluation Survey. Subrecipients that received ARRA State Fiscal Stabilization Funds must complete the survey.

Great Teachers and Principal Survey. States receiving funds under the SFSF must provide assurances in four key areas of education reform. This survey will be used to collect data required for the first reform area, achieving equity in teacher and principal distribution. It is important that data be reported completely and accurately, as it will be made publicly available, as required by statutory assurances.

Teacher Information per School. SFSF indicator (a)(4) requires that each LEA indicate the number and percentage of teachers rated at each performance level or rating. To enter this information, begin by selecting “Manage Teacher Categories.” Use the “Add a Category” button to enter the first rating level of the teacher evaluation system. For example, this category might be named “Satisfactory.” The ranking order indicates the level of performance for that category. The highest rank, 1, would be used to indicate the highest level of performance a teacher can demonstrate. Click the “Save Changes” button. Continue to add categories until the number and descriptions of categories exactly matches those used in the teacher evaluation system. After saving the changes, select the “School Level Data-Teachers” button. Enter the total numbers of teachers that are rated in each category for each school in the LEA. Include all teachers at the site regardless of the last date of evaluation. The sum of all categories should equal the total number of teachers at the site.

Principal Information per School. SFSF indicator (a)(7) requires that each LEA indicate the number and percentage of principals rated at each performance level or rating. To enter this information, begin by selecting “Manage Principal Categories.” Use the “Add a Category” button to enter the first rating level of the teacher evaluation system. For example, this category might be named “Satisfactory.” The ranking order indicates the level of performance for that category. The highest rank, 1, would be used to indicate the highest level of performance a principal can demonstrate. Click the “Save Changes” button. Continue to add categories until the number and descriptions of categories exactly matches those used in the principal evaluation system. After saving the changes, select the “School Level Data-Principals” button. Enter the number of principals in the LEA that are rated in each category.
