Student Learning Pilot 2017-18

Students demonstrate balancing

On July 27, 2017 we held our Student Learning Pilot information session at RIDE to engage stakeholders in the newly developed models for student learning. This session provided more details related to each of the three models, including an infographic and narrative scenario to depict each process, developed through the guiding principles that act as a foundation for student learning. Feedback was gathered at this session from participants to inform the collaborative team of initial reactions, further questions, and levels of interest in participation. This will be used to address the needs of local districts to meet the intended goal of supporting student learning through the authentic processes that occur throughout best instructional practices.

Furthermore, our Collaborative has developed a new element/component to add to the existing Professional Practice Rubric which will enable evaluators to rate teachers’ impact on student learning more holistically and more in line with the purpose of educator evaluation: to provide feedback and support to improve teaching and learning. Further information will be shared with the field on this innovative scoring approach and how it will be utilized. Please reach out to edeval@ride.ri.gov for general questions and concerns.
