Value-Added Student Growth Measure
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.
Value-added analysis helps educators measure the impact schools and teachers have on students’ academic progress rates from year to year. Ohio selected a value-added measure that provides educators with information on how they can use data to focus instruction.
Using Value-Added in 2015-2016 and Beyond
Original evaluation framework – If value-added data is available for teachers from state tests, districts using this framework may use the value-added rating in the student growth measures calculation at 10-50 percent, depending upon how much of the individual’s teaching assignment is dedicated to value-added courses. See the original evaluation framework here.
Alternative framework – When value-added data is available for teachers, districts using this framework will select from 10-35 percent, depending upon how much of the individual’s teaching assignment is dedicated to value-added courses. See details here.
Value-Added Access and Information
About Ohio’s Value-Added Model
Value-added measures differ from state to state. Ohio selected its value-added model after thousands of the state’s educators used this analytical approach to see how students were progressing and which teaching methods were having the greatest impact.
Because many teachers began using value-added information years before it was incorporated into the teacher evaluation system, Ohio laid a firm foundation for using this information to support professional learning and student achievement.
