TLE Quantitative Components

Everything you need to know about the quantitative portion of the TLE including:


Other Academic Measures (OAM)

Other Academic Measures will comprise fifteen percent of the teacher/leader total evaluation score under the TLE system; are additional alternative instruments ensuring a robust evaluation and capture unique facets of effective teaching; reflect student academic performance impacted by the teacher; and are specific to teachers’ job assignments.


Value Added Measures (VAM)

“Value added” is a measure of a teacher’s contributions to students’ academic growth.  The value-added model is designed to isolate a teacher’s value added from other factors that might affect a student’s scores but that are outside the teacher’s control.  The Student Academic Growth (SAG) will comprise 35 percent of the total teacher/leader evaluation score.




Student Learning Objectives (SLO) and Student Outcome Objectives (SOO)

Student Learning Objectives/Student Outcome Objectives (SLO/SOO) are a set of goals that measure educators’ progress in achieving student growth targets.


Roster Verification

Roster Verification (RV) is a teacher/student linkage process that securely and effectively collects essential data for teacher-level measures of effectiveness to ensure reliability and accuracy in classroom-level growth reports.  School support teams and principals work together to ensure the most reliable data is captured and used to determine the impact of instructional practices on student progress.
