A rigorous, transparent, and fair evaluation system using multiple observations and student growth measures to determine effectiveness.
Educator Observation InstrumentsEducators 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.
Learning Observation Instruments (LOI)Grounded in the belief that the best instruction occurs when students construct their own understanding and knowledge of the world, this instrument clearly describes what individualized teaching and conceptual learning looks like.
Six rubrics and 26 elements break down the clear descriptions into manageable tasks that teachers can master over time. The LOI is the foundational component of MCEA's observation instrument suite.
Coaching Observation Instruments (COI)Instructional coaching positively impacts the professional development of teachers and the learning of students. This instrument honors that important position and clearly describes what it takes to provide the right amount and type of support for professional growth to occur. The COI perfectly aligns to t he LOI and even shares several elements in order to connect the coach role to the success of a teacher and students.
Three rubrics and 23 elements break down the clear descriptions into manageable tasks that instructional coaches can master over time.
Leading Observation Instruments (LdOI)Teaching and learning significantly improve with great leadership. The instrument clearly describes the varied and complex roles of the school leader. The LdOI perfectly aligns to the LOI and COI. Common language is used throughout all instruments in order to connect the leader role to the success of a teacher and students.
Five rubrics and 22 elements break down the clear descriptions into manageable tasks that school leaders can master over time.
