The New Jersey Department of Education has determined Dr. Robert Marzano’s Causal Teacher Evaluation Model to meet the requirements of a research-based teacher practice evaluation system and to be eligible for the state’s $1.16 million teacher evaluation pilot grant.

The New Jersey Department of Education has determined Dr. Robert Marzano’s Causal Teacher Evaluation Model to meet the requirements of a research-based teacher practice evaluation system and to be eligible for the state’s $1.16 million teacher evaluation pilot grant. Learning Sciences International, partner of Dr. Marzano, is the model’s provider.

“New Jersey had a rigorous process for vetting teacher evaluation models requiring a strong research-base and validation studies,” said Michael Toth, CEO, Learning Sciences International. “I’m pleased New Jersey joins a growing list of states recognizing the research of Dr. Marzano’s Causal Teacher Evaluation Model.”

Dr. Marzano’s Causal Teacher Evaluation Model is a research-based system for “causing” increases in student achievement through incremental improvements in teaching. The validation studies include the linkage between teachers’ use of classroom strategies and behaviors with gains in student learning contained within the model. The model includes a field-proven classroom observation and feedback instrument to identify levels of teaching performance.

“We have implementations of Dr. Marzano’s model in a number of states with thousands of observers and tens of thousands of teachers,” said Toth. “Teacher associations have been very receptive of the model due to the accuracy of the observation tools and the way the model honors the complexity of teaching. It actually helps teachers get better and that is powerful.”

Learning Sciences International is hosting a webinar for districts, educational services agencies (ESAs) and state education department officials to learn more about products and services provided to support the implementation of Dr. Marzano’s evaluation model. Register online to attend this free webinar on Thursday, June 23 at 2pm Eastern.

Dr. Robert Marzano is an author and researcher in the field of education.

Learning Sciences International is partnered with Dr. Marzano to work with state departments of education and school districts to implement the Marzano Evaluation Model including advising on the redevelopment process, training observers, and ensuring accuracy and inter-rater reliability.
