Developer
This product was developed by Denver Public Schools.

Product Description

Although not specifically developed for teacher evaluation, SPF is used to inform teacher and principal compensation through the evaluation of school performance using multiple measures that examine student achievement and school organization. The measures include student achievement data. SPF is used to identify the accrediation rating of each school in the Denver Public School system and to inform teacher and principal compensation. The Professional Compensation for Teachers (ProComp) in Denver uses SPF to measure student growth as part of its calculations to determine which ProComp teachers receive bonuses. Although this measure was developed for school evaluation, the measures within this assessment system can be used for teacher evaluation as in the ProComp System.
