|Educational Management Information System||The Education Management Information System is a statewide data collection system for Ohio’s primary and secondary education, including demographic information, attendance, course information, financial data, and test results.|
|Electronic Teacher Principal Evaluation System||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 framework* for educator evaluation as adopted by the State Board of Education.
|Highly Qualified Teacher||The actual definition and teacher requirements of highly qualified teacher can be found in §9101 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), otherwise known as NCLB.
Requires all core academic teachers and instructional paraprofessionals especially those whose positions are paid by Title I targeted assistance funds to meet requirements designated by ODE to meet federal standards.
Starting in 2016-2017, intervention specialists of students eligible for the Alternate Assessment for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities in Grades 7-12 will need to comply.
Shift to HET with ESSA*
|Multivariate Response Model||Multivariate Response Model (MRM) is used for tests given in consecutive grades, like the OAA math and reading assessments in grades three through eight.|
|Ohio Achievement Assessments||The Ohio Achievement Assessments for grades 3-8 measure students’ achievement levels in Reading, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
Previously known as OAPs, OATs, and proficiency tests. Replaced by PARCC in Spring 2014-2015.
|Ohio Principal Evaluation System||ODE suggests the following model-
Two components, each weighted at 50 percent:
1. Principal performance rating, determined from:
2. Student academic growth rating
3. Reported via eTPES
|Ohio Teacher Evaluation System||Standard 50/50 Framework–
Two components, each weighted at 50 percent:
New Alternative Framework– optional (effective 9/11/14)
|Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College Careers||One of two consortiums which developed online K-12 assessments in English and math. Will also supply assessments for Science grades 5 and 8, Social Studies grades 4 and 6. End-of-course tests to meet Ohio high school graduation requirements. They are ELA 1 and 2, algebra I, geometry (or integrated math 1 and 2), American history and American government and physical science. All will begin administration in Spring 2015.|
|Race to the Top||Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), provides funding to States to
|Student Growth Measure||Measures student growth which Ohio requires within teacher evaluation, principal evaluation and district grade card reports. Ohio law allows three types: Value Added, Approved Vendor Assessment and Local Measure (s).|
|Teacher Student Linkage||An online process which ‘links’ teachers to the students to whom they have provided instruction. Also known as Roster Verification (RV)|
|Student Learning Objective||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.|
|Teacher of Record||The teacher to which student learning is attributed. However definitions differ based upon procedure, purpose and politics.|
|Univariate Response Model||Univariate Response Model (URM) is used when a test is given in non-consecutive grades, such as OAA science assessments in grades five and eight or any End-of-Course tests.|
|Vendor Assessment||A commercial product used to assess student growth. Law requires ODE to select and approve vendor assessments. If a local uses the vendor’s product, the data must be used within student growth measures.|
|Value Added Method||Value-added analysis, which originated in economics, is a statistical method which purports to measure the impact schools and teachers have on students’ academic progress rates from year to year. Various models exist.|
|Education Value Added Assessment System (SAS)||EVAAS and SAS builds on methodology developed by Dr. William L. Sanders, and provides software, data analytics and management to a wide variety of industries including education, government and insurance.|
|RANDA||“ RANDA acquires, manages and utilizes data providing a variety of education intelligence: Student Data (student identification, student demographics, assessments, student growth, course completion, and college readiness), Educator Data (educator identification, educator demographics, professional development/continuing education, Teacher/Student Data Link (TSDL), value added assessment alignment, and teacher effectiveness), and third-party data (community demographics, school climate, early warning data).”|
|Local Measures||Provided for student growth measure purposes. Currently SLOs and shared attribution have been provided via ODE and eTPES.|
|Shared Attribution||Teachers ‘share’ student assessment results for purposes of evaluation.|
