So why does teacher evaluation matter? Because teaching matters. Simply put, high quality evaluation systems help ensure high quality teachers. To establish quality teacher evaluation practices, evaluators must be fair, their work must be valid, and the judgments they reach about a teacher’s practice must be reliable and defensible.

This webinar will discuss the role of observer calibration and certification in determining teacher effectiveness. You will learn about:

· The difference between inter-rater reliability and inter-rater agreement
· Measures of reliability
· Assessment of observer evidence
· Master scored videos
· Calibration events
· Analysis of results

Hear first-hand from Los Angeles Unified School District about their annual observer certification process and results, and why it’s important to them.

All attendees will receive a free copy of the white paper The Role of Calibration in Determining Educator Effectiveness.
