The purpose of this Professional Pathways for Teachers (PPfT) evaluation was to examine the measurement validity and reliability of PPfT appraisal data from the 2017–2018 school year. The PPfT appraisal is a multi-measure system that covers three areas: instructional practices (IP), professional growth and responsibilities (PGR), and two student growth measures: a teacher-level student learning objective (SLO) measure and a campus-level school-wide value-added (SWVA) measure.
Professional Pathways for Teachers (PPfT) is a human capital system that blends three primary components: appraisal, compensation, and professional development (PD) opportunities. The purpose of PPfT is to build the capacity of Austin Independent School District (AISD) teachers through a comprehensive system of supports and compensation with the ultimate goal of having a positive impact on teacher retention and student achievement. The current evaluation document presents descriptive analyses of the 2017–2018 PPfT appraisal and compensation data.
