Paet Oct07

  1. 1. THE PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL OF EXPERIENCED TEACHERS The Technical Requirements and MORE AN OECTA PRODUCTION
  2. 2. When did this new appraisal process start and why? <ul><li>The Ministry of Education initiated the process of Performance Appraisal of Experienced Teachers (PAET) in April 2007. </li></ul><ul><li>The intent was to create seamless transition between the new teachers’ (NTIP) and PAET, to strengthen the government’s PD directions, to improve student learning, and to respond to criticisms of the previous TPA. </li></ul>
  3. 3. OK, what are the key changes that impact me? <ul><li>1. A compulsory appraisal for experienced teacher only occurs every 5 years. </li></ul><ul><li>2. The Summative Rating Scale levels are “ satisfactory ” or “ unsatisfactory ”. </li></ul><ul><li>3. In an appraisal year, when a “satisfactory” rating is achieved on the first PAET, the appraisal process is completed. </li></ul><ul><li>4. The ALP – Annual Learning Plan, is teacher authored and directed, with more emphasis placed on goals, growth and PD. </li></ul><ul><li>5. The Parent and Student Surveys no longer exist. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Who is an Experienced Teacher? <ul><li>An experienced teacher is any certified teacher recognized by the College of Teachers who has successfully completed NTIP/TPA </li></ul><ul><li>OR </li></ul><ul><li>a certified teacher recognized by the College of Teachers who was in a permanent teaching position prior to the date of the mandated NTIP and is not in their first year of employment with his/her present board. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Key Components of PAET <ul><li>1. Domains and Competencies 2. The Annual Learning Plan </li></ul><ul><li>3. Appraisal Meetings </li></ul><ul><li>4. The Summative Report </li></ul><ul><li>5. The Rating Scale </li></ul><ul><li>6. Additional Supports </li></ul>
  6. 6. The components of PAET seem to be the same as the “old TPA”, are they? <ul><li>MOSTLY </li></ul><ul><li>HOWEVER </li></ul><ul><li>… the damage is in the details and the changes </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Domains and Competencies <ul><li>There are 5 domains from the College of Teachers: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Commitment To Pupils </li></ul><ul><li>2. Professional Knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>3. Teaching Practice </li></ul><ul><li>4. Leadership and Community </li></ul><ul><li>5. Professional Learning </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Competencies flow from the Domains <ul><li>There are a total of 16 competencies broken down as follows: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Commitment To Pupils (4) </li></ul><ul><li>2. Professional Knowledge (4) </li></ul><ul><li>3. Teaching Practice (5) </li></ul><ul><li>4. Leadership and Community (2) </li></ul><ul><li>5. Professional Learning (1) </li></ul><ul><li>SEE Page 22 of the Technical Requirements Manual for PAET </li></ul>
  9. 9. Where do the “Look-fors” come in? <ul><li>The “look-fors” are objective observations made by the principal or designate that show that the teacher has command of the Competency(s) and therefore the Domain. </li></ul><ul><li>See page 59-75 of the Technical Requirements Manual for PAET for examples </li></ul>
  10. 10. So how are the Domains, Competencies and “Look-fors” used in my PAET? <ul><li>In the pre-observation meeting held with the principal, discussions will occur to narrow the focus and number of competencies to be appraised in that observation. </li></ul><ul><li>HOWEVER </li></ul><ul><li>The principal is free to take into consideration all 16 competencies in the Summative Report. </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Annual Learning Plan (ALP) <ul><li>1. Every teacher must have an ALP. </li></ul><ul><li>2. The ALP is teacher authored and directed. </li></ul><ul><li>3. The ALP is developed in consultation and collaboration with the principal. </li></ul><ul><li>4. The original ALP is updated and revised each year taking into consideration the comments from the Summative Report of the most recent PAET. </li></ul>
  12. 12. The Annual Learning Plan (ALP) (continued) <ul><li>5. In an appraisal year, the ALP is reviewed by the teacher and principal as part of the pre and post observation meeting and updated as necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>6. In non-appraisal years, the teacher is required, in consultation with the principal, to review his/her professional growth goals and strategies for that year. A meeting is not required. </li></ul><ul><li>7. Teachers are encouraged to consider parent and student input for their ALP. </li></ul>
  13. 13. The ALP Form <ul><li>An ALP Form may be developed by each board based on the Sample Form. This is a role for the TPA Board Resource Team, of which OECTA is a member. </li></ul><ul><li>Pages 51 – 54 of the Manual </li></ul>

  16. 16. Taking Possession of Your ALP <ul><li>It is essential that each teacher takes ownership and possession for their personal professional ALP. </li></ul><ul><li>An ALP is not a vehicle to drive a principal’s agenda or a mechanism for a board to implement or mandate it’s strategic goals or plans. It is a professional growth document. </li></ul>
  17. 17. The Appraisal Meetings <ul><li>There are 4 appraisal meetings: </li></ul><ul><li>a pre-observation meeting </li></ul><ul><li>a classroom observation </li></ul><ul><li>a post observation meeting </li></ul><ul><li>a Summative Report meeting </li></ul><ul><li>(optional) </li></ul>
