Measuring Student Growth
Student Growth, for the purpose of educator evaluation, is measured in two ways.  All teachers are required to write Student Learning Objectives (SLOs), and teachers in federally-mandated tested grades and subjects also use the Educator Value-Added Assessment System (EVAAS).  The ADEPT Overview Presentation (above) further explains these requirements.
