Using the MAEIA Assessments to Demonstrate Educator Effectiveness
MAEIA Demonstrating Educator Effectiveness tools and resources support teachers and administrators through the process of: 1) planning; 2) measuring student growth with the use of the MAEIA assessments; and 3) presenting and reviewing student growth data and portfolio materials as evidence of student growth and teacher effectiveness. Additional resources support in understanding Michigan’s evaluation law.
Our Demonstrating Educator Effectiveness videos provide guidance on how to successfully use the Evaluation and Observation processes as well as how to prepare administrators for the unique qualities of teaching and learning in arts classrooms.
Our Edupaths course on Demonstrating Educator Effectiveness is also a useful resource for understanding legislative requirements and how MAEIA assessments can meet the needs of arts educators, the three methods for demonstrating educator effectiveness using the MAEIA assessments, ways to document instruction, and how teachers can have a voice in the educator evaluation process.
What does Michigan law allow?
PA 173 of 2015 requires annual evaluation for all teachers and administrators based on demonstrated effectiveness in two areas: Professional Practice and Student Growth. MAEIA’s catalogue of 360 performance assessments are aligned to Michigan standards; data that results from using MAEIA’s assessments are allowable as a local student growth measure when determining teacher effectiveness in the arts.
