eTPES Help

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

There will be no changes for the 2019-2020 evaluations.

The Ohio Teacher and Principal Evaluation Systems (eTPES) is an online educator evaluation system for statewide use by Ohio districts and schools.

Evaluators can collect and store growth and improvement plans, evidence and documented observations to determine educator performance based upon defined rubrics. The electronic system will follow the frameworks for educator evaluation as adopted by the State Board of Education, which include multiple measures of teacher and principal performance and student academic growth.


User Guides



A variety of other vendors have mobile applications for educator evaluation for standard web browsers and mobile devices. These applications are at a cost to the LEA, and are not required by ODE as an addition to the eTPES system. LEAs are at liberty to download and purchase products from these vendors, but need to be aware that if an LEA chooses to use any of these other applications, eTPES is not designed for and will not support integration with other vendor created applications or products.
