Educator Evaluation and the Use of the Early Warning Indicator System (EWIS). Updated September 9, 2013
Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education first released the Early Warning Indicator System (EWIS) data for grades 1-12 in the 2012-13 school year. The Department created the EWIS in direct response to educators' requests for early indicator data across multiple grade levels. The EWIS is a "tool to systematically identify students that may need additional attention in order to reach an upcoming academic goal" (expected student outcome). The EWIS was developed by looking at the actual outcomes of Massachusetts students in prior years and statistically validating a wide range of student level data to best predict whether current students are on track to meet upcoming academic goals. The information provided in this document may be helpful as districts continue to roll out educator evaluation systems aligned to the Massachusetts Educator Evaluation Framework.
