A rigorous, transparent, and fair evaluation system using multiple observations and student growth measures to determine effectiveness.
Educator Observation Instruments
Educators are observed in multiple settings during multiple cycles using the REIL observation instruments. The REIL Observation Instruments are three separate yet related tools that clearly describe effective classroom instruction, instructional leadership, and professional development.
Effectiveness is determined by combining the educator's multiple observation scores with multiple student growth calculations into an effectiveness rating called the REIL Score. The REIL Score Webcast gives an overview of the effectiveness calculations. Download the REIL Guidebook for a full description of how effectiveness is determined.
