On November 20 at approximately 8:00 pm, teachers across North Carolina will have access to their EVAAS Educator Effectiveness Data. In 2012, the State Board of Education adopted policy TCP-C-006 – Policy on Standards and Criteria for Evaluation of School Professional Employees. This policy introduced Standard 6 – Teachers contribute to the academic success of students – to the teacher evaluation instrument.
EVAAS data from the 2013-14 school year was slated to be released in October of this year. However, due to verification issues regarding NC Final Exams, the data release was postponed. It is important to note that teachers who taught courses where NC Final Exams were used as their effectiveness measure should know that NC Final Exams growth has not yet been verified as reliable. However, EOGs and EOCs in grades 3-12 and mClass data used in K-2 have been tested for validity and reliability and approved. More information will be forthcoming regarding the validity of NC Final Exam data.
To log into EVAAS, teachers should go to https://ncdpi.sas.com/. Effectiveness data can be accessed by clicking on the Teacher Dashboard.
