Multiple Measures

  • LEAP gives teachers and leaders the opportunity to reflect on practice and to make shifts in instruction and support based on a variety of data. The system is designed to look holistically at multiple factors contributing to a teacher's effectiveness.

  • Observation


    School leaders and/or peers observe a teacher’s classroom practice, collect evidence, align the evidence to the Framework for Effective Teaching, arrive at an indicator score to help capture the level of performance, and identify strengths and opportunities for growth.
