Wisconsin Schools: Implement your teacher evaluation plans




Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction & Teachscape Partnership


The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has selected Teachscape as its partner for the Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness State System. This partnership provides each educator in the state of Wisconsin with full access to the Teachscape Effectiveness Platform including observer training and certification, evaluation management, and a professional learning system.


The Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness State System is a comprehensive, performance-based system developed to provide a fair, valid, and reliable evaluation model statewide for teacher and principals that supports continuous improvement of professional practice resulting in improved student learning. The system will help evaluate teachers and principals using multiple measures across two main areas: educator practice and student outcomes.
