OTES 1.0

The Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) Evaluator Training will prepare an evaluator of teachers, as defined by the role you serve in a Local Educational Agency (LEA), for effective, high quality and consistent staff evaluation using the OTES Model which is aligned to the OTES Framework as adopted by the State Board of Education in November 2011. To become a credentialed evaluator of teachers in the State of Ohio, an individual must be properly licensed or LEA approved as a peer evaluator, participate in the three-day state-sponsored evaluator training and pass an online credentialing assessment. Upon successful completion of the training (attendance for all three days is REQUIRED), participants will have access to the online assessment.

The three-day state-sponsored OTES training will provide a better understanding of the OTES Framework, including the Summative Matrix and Model, allow practice of skills such as scripting, evidence analysis/categorizing and coaching, and allow for sharing of resources and best practices in educator evaluation
