Local Measures

Per SB 216, the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System will change beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. Districts and schools, other than the limited number of districts participating in the voluntary pilot program, will continue to use the current OTES system for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020.

There will be no changes for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 evaluations.


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.
