One of the most important factors in a successful evaluation process is ensuring that appraisers understand the rubric they are using to evaluate their staff. With appraisal analysis, a district or school leader can view evaluation data at different levels and drill in and out of the data to help them identify skew and areas they might need to address. This will ultimately assist in identifying coaching needs for both evaluators and teachers.
Make sure you are set up for success! See how to connect your evaluation documents to the framework to maximize your Analysis results.
To access Appraisal Analysis, navigate to Strive, then select Appraisal Analysis under the Reports tab.
- Select the data and dates to be included in the report.
- Select the columns and row filters.
- Include an optional group by field if desired.
Note: The Focus is currently limited to Observation, Evaluation, and Summative documents due to the fact that it is only analyzing matrix items at this time. As we continue to develop the tool, we will include additional types of analysis.
The data can be further refined by school, appraiser, appraisee type, grade level, and subject using the filter option on the next page.
Note: Subject and Grade levels are captured directly in evaluation documents. If the appraiser does not add those fields to the evaluations, no data will appear in the Subject or Grade column; the data will appear as 'Not Set'.
Getting Started: Filter Suggestions
To create basic, high level views, district leaders could filter:
- Appraisers by School
- Subject by School
Campus leaders could filter:
- Appraisees by Appraiser
- Appraisees by Subject or Grade
- Subjects or Grade by Appraisers
Any combination of filters can provide valuable information depending on need.
For example, the dimensions filter might be used by a district leader who wants to check rubric calibration across the district, or by a campus leader checking across departments.
