Evidence collected by administrators who are trained to conduct observations may be useful in the evaluation of certified personnel. The power of observation as an evidence, however, lies in its ability to catalyze growth when teachers and other professionals make intentional changes to instructional and professional practices. The underlying rationale of the observation conducted by an evaluator is to encourage continual professional growth in teaching and learning through collaboration, feedback and reflection.
Information about the specific role of observation in a district’s personnel evaluation system is included in the local district’s Certified Evaluation Plan (CEP).
