NEW!! Apply to be a Master Scorer!
RIDE is working to identify additional videos of instructional practice that can be used in future trainings. As part of this effort, RIDE is seeking volunteers to become master scorers for a series of videos. Master scorers will be responsible for viewing the videos, scoring them using the Rhode Island Model Teacher Professional Practice Rubric, and developing rationales for the ratings. The time commitment is up to five hours of pre-work and attendance at three in-person three-hour calibration work sessions at RIDE. In return for their commitment, master scorers will receive a $450 stipend. Interested evaluators, evaluation coordinators, induction coaches, and intermediary-service providers can review the desired qualifications and complete the application here:
All applications are due by April 25, 2015 (extended from the previous deadline of April 18). Please contact Lauren Matlach, at email@example.com, if you have any questions about this opportunity.
Establishing Teacher-Course-Student Connections
Teacher-course-student (TCS) rosters allow the Rhode Island Department of Education to connect student-level data with specific courses and teachers. These data provide teachers and administrators with classroom-level data that can be used to inform school, district and state-level decisions about policy, practice, and resources. This document provides information about the systems using TCS rosters and outlines the requirements and considerations for creating a district-level contributing educator policy, which helps ensure that TCS connections are made consistently throughout the district.

Developed by a working group comprised of teachers, administrators, and other educators from throughout the state, the RI Code of Professional Responsibilities, along with the Rhode Island Educational Leadership Standards, were used to develop the Professional Responsibilities Rubric for the RI Model Educator Evaluation System.

The Common Core State Standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education careers so that they will graduate from high school able to succeed in college, careers and life. The Standards were developed as a state-led effort of 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia and coordinated by the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State School Officers.
