This annual Symposium provides an opportunity for participants from around
the world to come together to learn about effective practices and
discuss issues related to teacher induction, to create a new vision for
the teaching profession, and to consider how induction systems and
mentoring practices can move our classrooms and schools towards
excellence and equity.
What is the Value of Evaluation?
Evaluation is critical to an induction program’s fidelity, improvement and sustainability. Mentoring programs are viewed as a value-added educational strategy that builds capacity toward a culture of leadership, professionalism, continuous improvement and excellence for beginning teachers and administrators. How does evaluation assist the Oregon Mentoring Program with these three foundational components in order to meet the program goals?
This presentation discussed the evaluation of a state-wide mentoring program that demonstrates increases in student learning and growth, improvement in instructional practices, and retention of effective teachers and administrators.
