The WI Educator Effectiveness System

The Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness System provides a performance-based evaluation that leads to improved student learning by supporting the continuous improvement of educator practice.


The DPI Educator Effectiveness Team implements and improves the Wisconsin Educator Effectiveness System to ensure that educators receive quality data to identify and inform individual areas of: 1) strength; 2) needed improvement; and 3) ongoing support for professional growth

NOTICE:  Some Wisconsin districts received an email communication from an independent software provider requesting participation in a survey on the evaluation of Wisconsin’s Educator Effectiveness System. This survey is not from DPI nor will it inform existing models or the evaluation of the overall System. Read more here.
