New SLO Resources Available on EngageNY
SED is very pleased to announce an exciting new resource for the field -- a brand new, multi-state SLO rubric. This rubric, co-developed by New York State and other Race to the Top states, is now being used across a number of Race to the Top States.
The rubric and a webinar on how to use the rubric are now posted on EngageNY:
- DRAFT Multistate SLO Rubric - Evaluators and educators are encouraged to use this rubric to measure the quality of the information provided by educators on the NYS SLO Template. Please view the webinar "SLO 102 for Teachers" to see how to use the rubric with a sample SLO. This draft rubric was developed by a national SLO Work Group convened by the Reform Support Network (RSN) that includes representatives from many of the Race to the Top States, including New York State. The goal of the effort was to produce a rubric that multiple states can use to evaluate the quality of SLOs. The group examined a wide range of rubrics from school districts and states across the country, looking for strengths and weaknesses, similarities and differences. The rubric that resulted from the efforts of the group uses one performance level -- meets expectations -- as the decision was made that an SLO should not be approved if it does not meet the expectations set forth in the rubric. Future tools created by the RSN work group will be posted here as they become available.
