Associated Teacher Evaluation Classifications

Description of Data:

Ohio's system for evaluating teachers (Ohio's Teacher Evaluation System) provides educators with a detailed view of their performance, with a focus on specific strengths and opportunities for improvement. The system is research-based and designed to be transparent, fair, and adaptable to the specific contexts of Ohio's school districts. Furthermore, it builds on what educators know about the importance of ongoing assessment and feedback as a powerful vehicle to support improved practice. Teacher performance and student academic growth are the two key components of Ohio's evaluation system. Reporting period from September 1, 2021 to August 31, 2022. (Data Source: Ohio Department of Education.)

An apparent dip in evaluations for the most recent "Initial License Effective Year" cohort comes from the perception that any given year's evaluation results are actually a chronological view of evaluations. Rather, it's a view of the evaluations from that school year, showing four different cohorts of licensed educators. The most recently licensed cohort will eventually have more evaluation results in its second year as more educators find employment as teachers or principals.

Limitations of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) Data:

  1. The information in the report is for those individuals receiving their licenses with effective years of 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
  2. The teacher evaluation data in this report are provided by the Ohio Department of Education. 3. Due to ORC 3333.041(B), annual results must be masked for institutions with fewer than 10 completers with OTES data.
