On Nov. 7, the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) released a broadcast stating that the NJDOE is releasing mSGP reports, opening the window for districts to finalize and certify their 2017-18 evaluation scores.
These 2017-18 mSGP scores will count for 30 percent of tested subject area teacher summative evaluation scores. mSGP scores will drop to 5 percent of educator evaluation scores for the 2018-2019 statewide testing cycle.
In June/July of each school year, school districts upload each teacher’s course roster to the NJSmart system, indicating which students are attributed to qualifying teachers. Students are to be included on a teacher’s roster ONLY if:
At the conclusion of each school year, non-mSGP teachers receive their Annual Summative Evaluation Rating, which is composed of their TEACHER PRACTICE and STUDENT GROWTH OBJECTIVE scores. However, mSGP teachers’ scores cannot be completed until release of the mSGP data. The NJDOE releases mSGP scores in the year following testing, which results in delaying the receipt of Annual Summative Evaluation Ratings for qualifying teachers.
If the teacher’s roster and score are accurate, the district may certify his/her summative score. If discrepancies are present, these must be resolved prior to the district score certification process.
Any educator who receives a summative score less than 2.65 must be placed on Corrective Action Plan (CAP). Teachers placed on corrective action, should be advised to contact their local president and NJEA UniServ field representative for guidance and support.
Local leaders should encourage building principals who are responsible for Grades 4 through 8 to initiate discussions and schedule meetings for a review of mSGP score and course rosters. The NJDOE has shared this protocol for sharing teacher mSGP reports.
If you have additional questions, please reach out to your NJEA UniServ Field Representative who can gather information from the NJEA Professional Development and Instructional Issues Division.
