Introducing the 5D+™ Rubric for Instructional Growth and Teacher Evaluation, Version 3

Recorded: May 17, 2016 (57 minutes)

Over the last four years, school districts across the country have used the Center for Educational Leadership’s (CEL) 5D+ Teacher Evaluation Rubric to build evaluation systems that help teachers grow and improve instruction.

Working side-by-side with our partners, we have reviewed ongoing research and collected feedback to make the 5D+ Rubric even more precise and practical for school leaders, coaches and teachers. 

In this webinar, Patty Maxfield, CEL’s director of teacher evaluation, introduces version three of the 5D+ Rubric, highlights changes from the previous version and explains what educators using the tool in their practice need to keep in mind when switching to the updated rubric.

Note: This webinar will be most valuable for educators who are already familiar with the 5D+ Rubric. If you are looking for a more general introduction to CEL's teacher evaluation system, check extensive resources on our website or contact us.
