Reports for completing PDE's Teacher and Principal Evaluation Survey (TPES) are available on PA-ETEP for School District Admin users.

To view and/or export the various TPES reports, School District Admin users should log on and click on the Reporting tab under the Administration menu.


Please note that there are two types of reports available for each type of completed 82 form (i.e., 82-1, 82-2, and 82-3). The data from these reports can be used to complete the information required on PDE’s Teacher and Principal Evaluation Survey (click here to access PDE’s TPES website).


1) TPES Individuals Report – This report provides all the recorded ratings and totals on completed 82 forms for individual users by building. Additional information about this report is provided at the bottom of the report. For an example of this report, see the attached screenshot.


2) TPES Buildings Report – This report identifies the number of Overall Effectiveness Ratings (Failing, Needs Improvement, Proficient, and Distinguished) and Final Ratings (Satisfactory and Unsatisfactory) for teachers, NTPEs, and/or principals. This report provides data for the purposes of completing the aggregated data portions of PDE’s Teacher and Principal Evaluation Survey.  Additional information about this report is provided at the bottom of the report. For an example of this report, see the attached screenshot.


3) ESSA Effectiveness Ratings - For the 2017-18 school year and beyond, PA-ETEP's TPES report includes the ESSA Effectiveness Rating calculation data.


The TPES Individuals tab provides individual teacher ESSA Effectiveness Rating calculations (scroll to the far right).  See attached screen grab for example.


The TPES Buildings tab 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 (82-1 forms) and principal evaluations. Only building-level aggregate totals of Effective/Ineffective classroom teachers will be reported to PDE per ESSA’s requirements.


Within PA-ETEP, the TPES report is only available to School District Admin users. The TPES report and the ESSA Effectiveness Rating calculations are not available to individual teachers or building principals.



ESSA Calculations for School Years 2019-20 and 2020-21


According to PDE and Pennsylvania’s ESSA State Plan, the following data elements are used to operationalize the definition of Effective Educator:


1. Student Growth Measure Student Learning Outcome (SLO) (20%)

2. Domain 2  Classroom Environment (30%)

3. Domain 3 – Instruction (30%)

4. Domain 4  Professional Responsibilities (20%)


With the waiver of student performance data for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years (Act 13 and Act 136), including SLO data collectionSLO data (20%) will be substituted with additional emphasis on Domain 3  Instruction, as this domain includes the component of Using Assessment in InstructionTherefore, for reporting in 2019-2020 and 2020-2021, the following data elements will operationalize the definition of effective educator for ESSA’s equitable access requirements: 


1. Student Growth Measure  Domain 3 – Instruction (20%)

2. Domain 2  Classroom Environment (30%)

3. Domain 3  Instruction (30%)

4. Domain 4  Professional Responsibilities (20%)


In practical terms, Domain 3 will comprise 50% of the weighting for ESSA purposes for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years.
