Dr. Marzano’s Evaluation Model alignment to Arizona’s Framework for Measuring Educator Effectiveness

Learning Sciences International

As you are already aware, the Arizona State Board of Education Task Force on Teacher and Principal Evaluation has adopted the InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards as a guideline to improve student achievement.

InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards offer a set of teaching standards that describe what teachers should know and be able to do to ensure that every student is ready to enter college and today’s workforce. The State of Arizona has made it a point to provide LEAs with as much flexibility as possible when it comes to creating and implementing a research-based evaluation system in order to fit specific needs. The state has also highlighted that LEAs will ensure that the evaluation system is both fair and accurate, and that evaluations are based on multiple measures.

It is imperative that districts implement a evaluation model that is accurate, fair and fosters professional development for teachers. Dr. Marzano’s Causal Teacher Evaluation model focuses on teaching strategies identified by research to increase student learning gains. As a result of of this granular approach to evaluation, the model has proved to create a high success rate in observer accuracy and inter-rater reliability. The model also enables more effective and specific feedback to teachers, enabling them to improve professional practice and directly effect student achievement. Learning Sciences International has developing a helpful document that aligns Dr. Marzano’s Causal Teacher Evaluation Model to the Ten InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards listed Below:

  • Standard #1: Learning Development
  • Standard #2: Learning Differences
  • Standard #3: Learning Environments
  • Standard #4: Content Knowledge
  • Standard #5: Application of Content
  • Standard #6: Assessment
  • Standard #7: Planning for Instruction
  • Standard #8: Instructional Strategies
  • Standard #9: Professional Learning and Ethical Practice
  • Standard #10: Leadership and Collaboration

Download the alignment document to see how The Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model provides a means for teachers to implement the InTASC standards into their daily practice.
