Local Measures

The COVID-19 ordered school-building closure affects educator evaluation systems. Specifically, this impacts decisions around completion of 2019-2020 educator evaluations and implementation of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) 2.0. Please access additional information here.

A major percentage of each teacher's evaluation comes from how much their students learn over the course of the year. For educators with no Value-Added data and no approved vendor data, schools should establish local measures, including student learning objectives, to measure student growth.

Types of Local Measures

  • Student Learning Objectives
  • Shared Attribution
  • Approved Vendor Assessments (for Category A teachers only)

Student Learning Objectives

A student learning objective is a measurable, long-term academic growth target that a teacher sets at the beginning of the year for all students or for subgroups of students. Student learning objectives demonstrate a teacher’s impact on student learning.
