State Board of Education postpones SLOs, SOOs in TLE evaluation
Thu, 02/26/2015 - 3:30pm

 OKLAHOMA CITY (Feb. 26, 2015) — The Oklahoma State Board of Education today voted unanimously to postpone one element of the quantitative portion of the state’s Teacher and Leader Effectiveness (TLE) system that recently had been discredited by research.

As a result of the board vote, Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) and Student Outcome Objectives (SOOs) will not be used this school year as a proxy for Value-Added Models (VAMs). Other recommendations for research-based improvement must be made legislatively.
