Educator Effectiveness was established by action of the Wisconsin State Legislature and with the guidance of the Wisconsin DPI in 2011.
2011 Wisconsin Act 166
115.415 Educator effectiveness. (1) The department shall develop an educator effectiveness evaluation system and an equivalency process aligned with the department's evaluation system for the evaluation of teachers and principals of public schools, including teachers and principals of a charter school established under s. 118.40 (2r), as provided in this section. Each school board and the governing body of each charter school established under s. 118.40 (2r) shall evaluate teachers and principals in the school district or charter school beginning in the 2014-15 school year.
Educator Practice and Student Outcomes
The Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness System (EE System) includes two equally important measures: educator practice and student outcomes.
1. The scores do not label a teacher as “effective” or “ineffective,” but rather identify a place along a growth spectrum.
2. The separate scores help identify specific areas of strengths and potential growth.
