Educator Evaluation

Evaluation Systems are an integral part of a comprehensive talent management system which seeks to develop, support, and grow educators through observation of practice and high-quality feedback.

Your questions and comments are welcome at EdEval@ride.ri.gov.

RIDE shares SY21-22 evaluation options for LEAs

Last year, RIDE worked collaboratively with professional associations to provide evaluation options for SY20-21. These options afforded LEAs flexibility while also maintaining the integrity of local evaluation systems. The selection of options 1 or 2 meant that evaluation cycles remained unchanged and all educators due for a SY20-21 evaluation would have received one. Option 3, however, allowed LEAs to postpone the evaluations of Highly Effective and Effective educators to SY21-22. 
 

If your LEA utilized Option 3 in SY20-21, your evaluation plan for SY21-22 should be as follows: 

  • Conduct evaluations for educators whose evaluations were postponed from SY20-21 and 
  • Conduct evaluations for educators who received Final Effectiveness Ratings of Developing or Ineffective in SY20-21 and 
  • Conduct evaluations for non-tenured teachers and 
  • Conduct evaluations for educators due for a SY21-22 evaluation based on their evaluation cycle 
  • Optional: Postpone evaluating Highly Effective and Effective educators due for a SY21-22 evaluation based on their evaluation cycle

More detailed information can be found in this SY21-22 Educator Evaluation Slide Deck.

LEA evaluation data will be reported for all educators at the end of SY21-22 indicating whether educators were fully evaluated, postponed due to being Highly Effective/Effective, or "Cyclical" to indicate the educator was not due for an evaluation in SY21-22. 

LEAs that would like more information or technical assistance with implementing SY21-22 evaluation should email EdEval@ride.ri.gov with a request.

2021-22 End-of-Year Evaluation Data Collection Guidance

Below you can find more information about the end-of-year (EOY) data collection guidance for the 2021-22 school year. Additionally, District Evaluation Committees (DECs) should review the details of the options in RIDE’s slide deck presentation and then choose which options may meet local needs.

For EEM Users:

DCAs have until Thursday, June 30, 2022 to upload their educator evaluation data to RIDE’s submission portal via the eRIDE system. Like last year, the Final Effectiveness Rating Report (FERR) and related data must first be extracted from EEM by each District Configuration Administrator (DCA) before being uploaded to RIDE’s submission portal via the eRIDE system.

For questions regarding the data extract process, please reach out directly to Frontline for support: pgsupport@frontlineed.com.

For non-EEM users:

DCAs should read the Educator Evaluation Data Collection Specifications document in detail, as it provides important information regarding the 2021-22 school year.

You cannot use last year’s template. To locate the new template:

  • Go to eRIDE and click on the ‘Data Dictionary’ link under Data Collections in the left side menu.
  • Use the ‘Preformatted Record Layouts’ link on the right to locate the file layout.
  • In the dropdown, select ‘K12 Staff - Evaluation’.
  • Click ‘Display File Layout’ button.
  • Click on 'Download Sample CSV Template' to download the template. You may also use the XLS Template to prepare your data.

The uploaded file will need to be in Excel (Version 2010 or later). LEAs have until Thursday, June 30, 2022 to upload their educator evaluation data to RIDE’s submission portal via the eRIDE system.

For questions regarding submitting educator evaluation data via CSV file, including the upload to eRIDE, please email edeval@ride.ri.gov.

Employee Evaluation Management (EEM) Training

Rhode Island districts who used EPSS transitioned to a new Frontline system called Employee Evaluation Management (EEM) in the 2017-18 school year. Frontline provided initial training on the new system to both District Configuration Administrators (DCAs) and evaluators and provided the following materials to support this transition. More information and training resources can be found directly through Frontline's online resources.
