Texas Teacher Evaluation & Support System
Texas Principal Evaluation & Support System
• Designed to support teachers in
• First statewide evaluation process
their professional development
and help teachers grow and
improve as educators
• Comprised of multiple measures of
teacher effectiveness
•
•
•
In- and out-of-classroom indicators
Student learning growth
Teacher self-reflection
for principals
• Will utilize goal-setting and a
value-added model (VAM) as part
of the evaluation process
• Aligned with T-TESS
Development of T-TESS and T-PESS
•
•
Facilitated by the Texas Comprehensive Center at SEDL and the Texas Education Agency

Induction
Key Components of the New Evaluation Systems
• Formative evaluations
• Goal is timely feedback that will allow teachers and principals to grow
professionally
• Ongoing conversations between appraiser and appraisee
• Not a one-time visit during the appraisal year but a continuous dialogue
around effective practices
• Development of relationships that foster open and collaborative
campus and district cultures
Why Leave PDAS?
• PDAS has drifted from its original intent – to be a professional
development system for teachers – and become a system
focused more on compliance with rules.
• Education has evolved since PDAS was implemented in 1997.
• T-TESS seeks to update the tools of evaluation to complement
what’s happening in classrooms and to align with what districts
are already doing – creating open, collaborative campus
environments with a constant focus on instructional and
professional improvement.
T-TESS Annual Appraisal Process Timeline
The T-TESS goal-setting process is designed to occur at the end of the school year based on a teacher’s
current performance; however, during the first year of implementation, goal-setting will occur twice:
•
•
Initial goals will be established during the first three weeks of the school year.
During the summative conference, subsequent year goals will be established.
Teacher Self-Assessment
•
•
Development is an ongoing process for all teachers, regardless of proficiency level,
to promote and track agreed upon [by teacher and appraiser] goals and professional
development.
Teachers have a say in and monitor their own goals and growth.
•
•
•
•
Track progress toward goals
Document professional development to achieve goals
Make revisions to goals as contexts change over the year
Development is not isolated in single-year snapshots but is continuous and
consistently building off prior efforts and attention.

T-TESS Rubric
PDAS Rubric
•
•
Focuses on both teachers and students in observable
domains
•
•
•
•
•
•
Strives to capture the holistic nature of teaching
Strives to capture feedback built into the rubric itself
Gauges effectiveness of teachers by collecting data on
how students respond to teacher’s instructional
practices
Allows teachers to find practices in performance levels
that they can work toward in professional development
Utilizes five performance levels
Articulates different practices between performance
levels
•
•
Focuses individually on students or
teachers in observable domains
Utilizes four performance levels
Differentiates between performance
levels based on how often a teacher
does the same practice
T-TESS Measures of Teacher Effectiveness
• Observation = 70%
• Teacher Self-Assessment = 10%
• Student Growth = 20%
Student growth will not be part of the evaluation score during the pilot or
refinement years, making the relative weight 7:1
• Observation = 87.5%
• Teacher Self-Assessment = 12.5%

Timeline
• 2014-2015
• 2015-2016
• 2016-2017
Pilot Year (approximately 65 districts)
Refinement Year (approximately 200 districts)
Statewide Rollout*
* Districts have the option of adopting a local evaluation system in lieu of using T-TESS/T-PESS.
The Pilot Year: 2014-2015
Districts provide feedback on:
•
•
•
•
Evaluation tool
Evaluation process
Training
Support
Feedback will be used to refine the system so that the purpose of supporting teachers and
principals in their pursuit of improving their craft can be realized.
Districts have the option to pilot T-TESS and T-PESS jointly or each system individually.
•
•
Entire district
Specific schools
The Refinement Year: 2015-2016
Purpose
• Allow TEA to take all 2014-2015 feedback
Considerations
• ESC-20’s capacity to train new appraisers
during Summer 2015, in addition to the need
to implement the new system with a diverse
population of districts/charters (urban vs
rural, small vs large, etc.) will impact how
many districts/charters in the region will
have the opportunity to participate.
into consideration to appropriately adjust
appraiser training materials and
evaluation tools
•
Allow districts/charters additional time to
have conversations about the role of a
formative evaluation system in teacher
and principal development
•
•
Districts/charters may choose to pilot all
campuses or select specific campuses to
participate in the pilot.
Districts/charters may choose to pilot both
T-TESS and T-PESS together or may pilot
only one of the two systems.
Refinement Year Benefits to Districts/Charters
• Begin the process of changing the culture around evaluation from one based
in compliance to one based in feedback, support, and development
• Receive focused attention and support from ESC-20 and content experts to
assist in implementation
• Provide feedback on the evaluation system(s) that will lead to improved
processes and materials
•
Receive free appraiser training
Refinement Year Requirements
• Utilize T-TESS and/or T-PESS as the district’s/charter’s locally-adopted
evaluation system
• Attend appraiser training during Summer 2015 at ESC-20
• Ensure all appraisers are certified
• Implement all components (except student growth) of the T-TESS and/or
T-PESS evaluation system(s) with fidelity
• Interact with ESC-20 to receive implementation support and provide
feedback on the evaluation system(s)
