Teacher Advancement Program (TAP) at Wilburn Elementary School: Year 3 Evaluation Report. Eye on Evaluation. D&A Report No. 11.02
Baenen, Nancy
Wake County Public School System
The Teacher Advancement Program (TAP) is a model for training, teacher advancement, and instructional strategies. Based on interviews and observations, the four TAP principles were implemented with fidelity during the 2010-11 school year, with one exception--teacher evaluations. Feedback was slow, and teachers had concerns about the reliability of the ratings. The impact on teachers was negative. Compared to 2009-10, reading and math proficiency improved in grades 3 and 5 in 2010-11 but not grade 4. However, compared to proficiency before TAP began, only Grade 5 had improved reading proficiency and none of the grades (3, 4, and 5) had higher proficiency in math. Grade 4 had positive trends for Academic Change (growth) in both reading and math. The following appendices are included: (1) Wilburn Elementary School TIF Evaluation Semi-Structured Interview Protocol--Teachers; (2) Wilburn Elementary School TIF Evaluation Semi-Structured Interview Protocol--Mentor Teachers; (3) Wilburn Elementary School TIF Evaluation Semi-Structured Interview Protocol--Master Teacher; and (4) Wilburn Elementary School TIF Evaluation Semi-Structured Interview Protocol--Principal. [Amy Germuth of EvalWorks, contractor on this project, provided extensive contributions to this evaluation and report.]
