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

LEA evaluation data will be reported for all educators at the end of SY22-23 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 SY22-23. 

LEAs that would like more information or technical assistance with implementing SY22-23 evaluation should email with a request.

2022-23 End-of-Year Evaluation Data Collection Guidance

Below you can find more information about the end-of-year (EOY) data collection guidance for the 2022-23 school year.

For EEM Users:

In June 2023 DCAs will 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:

For non-EEM users:

DCAs should read the Educator Evaluation Data Collection Specifications document in detail.

For questions regarding submitting educator evaluation data via CSV file, including the upload to eRIDE, please email

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.
