PAETEP provides clients with the summative data needed to complete the Educator Effectiveness Annual Report (EEAR).

To view and/or export the data, School District Admin users should log into PAETEP and click on the Administration tab --> Reporting tab.  

Note - Within PAETEP, the Educator Effectiveness Annual Report is only available to School District Admin users. The Educator Effectiveness Annual Report and the ESSA Effectiveness Rating calculations are not available to individual teachers or building principals.

PDE is holding mandatory trainings to ensure LEAs understand and are aware of the changes to this year's EEAR report.  The Chief School Administrator or a designee must attend one of the webinars offiered. Please see the attached document for more information including dates, times and training links.

ESSA Effectiveness Ratings
For the 2017-18 school year and beyond, PAETEP's Educator Effectiveness Annual Report includes the ESSA Effectiveness Rating calculation data.

Educator Effectiveness Annual Report by Building - provides aggregate totals, including the total number of teachers considered Ineffective and Effective by building. According to the new calculation, teachers with an ESSA Effectiveness Rating calculation of (0.00-1.99) are considered Ineffective and (2.00-3.00) Effective.  See attached screen grab for example.

Note from PDE: Please note that federally-required, building-level reporting on rates of inexperienced, ineffective, and out of field educators is separate and distinct from educator evaluation data, and therefore has no impact on the completion of teacher (13-1 forms) and principal evaluations. Only building-level aggregate totals of Effective/Ineffective classroom teachers will be reported to PDE per ESSA’s requirements.

Educator Effectiveness Annual Report by Individual - provides individual teacher ESSA Effectiveness Rating calculations (scroll to the far right).
