Teacher - Measures of Student Learning S.B. 10-191 requires that 50 percent of an educator’s evaluation be based on educator impact on multiple measures of student learning in relation to the Colorado Academic Standards. In Colorado, the term academic growth is closely associated with results from the Colorado Growth Model (CGM) in the School and District Performance Frameworks. Evaluating student learning is not confined to results from the CGM, but is inclusive of results from multiple types of measures. Measures of student learning may include Colorado Growth Model (CGM) results as well as results from other state assessments, district assessments and teacher-developed assessments.
There are four basic requirements outlined in State Board Rules that districts should consider when designing educator evaluation systems to incorporate the results from multiple measures of student learning.
1. Individual Attribution
2. Collective Attribution
3. Statewide Summative Exam, where available
4. Results from Colorado Growth Model, where available
