Improving Evaluation in the Elm City

2 min read

As Connecticut relaunches a teacher evaluation system ReVIEW Talent Feedback can help districts prepare for the greater emphasis on classroom observation.

We serve dozens of districts across the nation.

In fact New Haven Public Schools now uses our  Video Based Calibrations to help ensure teachers in the district can trust their observations. Earlier this year ReVIEW Talent Feedback System signed on with New Haven Public Schools to complete over 240 Video Based Calibrations between January and June of 2017.

Video Based Calibrations, our most poular service, provide a pre and post assessment to districts looking to improve evaluator capacity. Adminsitrators watch a video from our professional development library and then score it against a district framework. New Haven will then get a report on their inter rater agreement to check for validity and reliability of their system.

But we do not stop there. Simply measuring administrators is not enough. Our unique approach to video based calibration actually coach administrators on how to observe and provide feedback.

We work with ReVIEW’s team of coaches to provide New Haven evaluators and new administrators with comprehensive narrative reports using the six standards of the ReVision Learning Supervisory Continuum to analyze feedback provided to teachers. This data will support the development of an on-going professional learning plan driven to ensure quality observation and feedback practice forevery teacher in New Haven Public Schools.

Patrick Flynn, co-founder of ReVIEW Talent Feedback System stated, "New Haven was an early adopter of newer evaluation practice and have recognized the need for continuous learning for all its evaluators. Their decision is commendable. ReVIEW provides provide evaluators at all levels of implementation with impactful feedback to support a deepening of their learning."

Greg McVerry notes that "We have made user center design the heart of ReVIEW Talent Feedback System. The coaches and evaluators of New Haven Public Schools will get the same high quality narrative feedback we expect them to deliver to teachers."
