An Evaluation of Delaware’s Teacher Evaluation System

Released July 1, 2017

RFA served as the evaluator for Delaware’s teacher evaluation system, known as the Delaware Performance Appraisal System (DPAS-II). RFA’s mixed-methods study consisted of examinations of the system’s implementation and related outcomes. Data was drawn from a statewide survey of teachers, specialists, and administrators; interviews and focus groups from site visits to two districts that have exhibited promising practices in DPAS-II implementation; and artifacts and evidence from teachers in the site visit locations. Results were disseminated via state-level reports and district-level dashboards designed to provide timely and actionable information to local educators.
