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.

!  The most up-to-date Educator Effectiveness System information can be found in our System-At-A-Glance infographic.
