To complete a summative evaluation you must first create a New Evaluation.
To create a summative evaluation:
- Select a teacher in the My Staff list.
- Click the New Evaluation button in the Teacher Options list.
- The New Evaluation wizard will appear, requesting the following:
- The type of evaluation
- The date of the summative
- Whether to copy an observation, average observations, or start with a blank summative
Remember that averaging more than one observation will always average UP in favor of the teacher and it averages each criteria separately rather than Domain total.
To complete a summative evaluation:
- Select an evaluation in the Teacher Documents list
- Select a rating for each objective in the list, which automatically updates the teacher's domain score
- Navigate through each PDAS domain by using the 1 - 8 navigation buttons. Your selections will auto-save as you move between domains
- Add remarks for Comments, Strengths, and Areas to Address for each domain or use predetermined district comments
- Click Save after completing the evaluation
