Educator Effectiveness Methods

MAEIA assessments have the potential for use in educator evaluation plans. It is recommended that the data demonstrating student learning gleaned from the MAEIA assessments be combined with a variety of information about the individual educator. Each MAEIA assessment is marked as appropriate for Method 1, 2 or 3 in measuring educator effectiveness. For a more in-depth description of how MAEIA assessments can be used as part of educator effectiveness plans, please see the link at the end of the method descriptions.

  • Method 1: Using This MAEIA Assessment to Demonstrate Educator Effectiveness

    This assessment can be used in demonstrating arts educator effectiveness by changing the prompt(s) used, if any, and repeating the item one or more times. Sufficient instructional time on the underlying concepts assessed (not the assessment item itself) should occur so that change in student performance is possible. This is especially suitable for assessments (e.g., MAEIA events) that require less time and effort to administer.

  • Method 2: Using This MAEIA Assessment to Demonstrate Educator Effectiveness

    This assessment can be used in demonstrating arts educator effectiveness by changing the prompt(s) used, if any, and repeating the item one or more times. Sufficient instructional time on the underlying concepts assessed (not the assessment item itself) should occur so that change in student performance is possible. It is suggested that the item be used in two or more adjacent grades, administering the item once per school year. This is especially suitable for assessments (e.g., MAEIA tasks) that require more time and effort to administer.

  • Method 3: Using the MAEIA Assessments to Demonstrate Educator Effectiveness the “New Old-Fashioned way”

    This assessment can be used in demonstrating arts educator effectiveness through organizing and presenting student performance data along with information about the steps the teacher used to instruct, support, and encourage students.
