Developer

Product Description
The Dallas Professional Development and Appraisal System (PDAS) takes into account student performance (determined using the district-created classroom effectiveness index), classroom observation(s), professional development participation, and teacher attendance. There are eight domains on which teachers are evaluated: student participation in learning, learner-centered instruction, evaluation and feedback on student progress, management, professional communication, professional development, compliance with requirements, and improving the academic performance of all students at the school. The district uses results from the PDAS to make decisions concerning the optional pay-for-performance compensation system that exists in the district; the Dallas pay-for-performance system includes compensation for schoolwide improvement.
