- Data verification guide for Teachers: This guide explains how teachers should verify their student rosters to ensure accuracy of their value-added scores.
Compass Data Verification (April 8th - May 3rd)
Teachers who receive value-added data may begin verifying student rosters on April 8th, through the Curriculum Verification and Reporting Portal (CVR). Verifying student rosters is a critically important, required process, as it ensures that the value-added data teachers receive accurately reflect the learning of the specific students whom they taught.
Teachers will have the opportunity to verify rosters between April 8th and May 3rd. After this time, teachers will no longer be able to make changes to rosters.
Instructions on how to verify rosters can be found here. If you have more detailed questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
Clarification Regarding Value-Added Data for Geometry Teachers
As noted in the end-of-year Compass guide, we have clarified the content areas and grades that will receive value-added scores. Geometry teachers through 9th grade will receive value-added scores as part of their Compass evaluation for the 2012-13 school year. 10th grade Geometry teachers will have access to value-added data for their students for informational purposes only. Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, 10th grade Geometry teachers' value-added scores will be included in their Compass evaluation.
