The Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness System is a performance-based evaluation system designed to improve the education of all students in the state of Wisconsin by supporting guided, individualized, self-determined professional growth and development of educators.

Teacher Evaluation Process
Per state law, teachers and principals are to be evaluated by the Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness System their first year of employment and every third year thereafter. A district can choose to evaluate more frequently. This final year in an evaluation cycle is referred to as the Summary Year.
Districts have expressed a strong desire to have options available to them to complete the positive, meaningful, and important work of the Educator Effectiveness system outside of Teachscape Reflect. To meet that need, DPI has developed several options, including using Teachscape Reflect, to complete EE tasks and activities throughout the school year.
The School District of Ashland has chosen to use Option 2: Implement a shared folder structure within Google Drive. Using Google Drive and the forms provided by DPI as suggested sample resources, create a shared file structure between educators and evaluators that each use to house relevant documents for the Effectiveness Cycle process.
There are 8 steps in the Teacher Evaluation Process:
Step 1: Teacher Evaluation System Orientation
Step 2: Data Review, Reflection, and Goal Setting
Step 3: Evaluation Planning Session
Step 4: Observations, Evidence Collection & On-going Feedback
Step 5: Mid-Year Review
Step 6: Final Teacher Evaluation
Step 7: Final Evaluation Conference
Step 8: Use of Evaluation Results
