What is iEvaluate 1.2?

iEvaluate 1.2 is an online evaluator approval course that is approved by the Iowa Department of Education and the Board of Educational Examiners and provided in partnership with AEA PD Online. It provides beginning and experienced evaluators an opportunity to focus on the critical elements of an educator evaluation system in Iowa:

  • Iowa’s model for Educator Quality (Chapter 83 of Iowa Administrative Rules)
  • Knowledge & Skills of a Quality Evaluator and Attributes of Effective Evaluation System:
    1. Professional Educator Standards: Iowa Teaching Standards and Criteria (ITSC) / Iowa Standards for School Leaders (ISSL)
    2. Data & Information from Multiple Sources
    3. Formal & Informal Observations
    4. Coaching for Educator Excellences
    5. Professional Development for Improving Practice & Student Learning

Throughout the course, participants must complete a series of online assignments (e.g., forum discussions, reading, scenarios, reflecting, responding, observing, planning, videotaping, etc.) during the eight-week course.
