Events, Forums, and Trainings

The Evaluation Team provides workshops, trainings, and other direct support to educators across the state. To date we have reached more than 25,000 educators and will continue this work into 2014-15. Please contact us at educatorevaluation@doe.state.nj.us if your district or organization has training needs related to evaluation.

SGO 2.0: from Compliance to Quality The Department will offer additional SGO workshop sessions in August and September for district teams who were unable to make the May/June sessions.  This workshop will clarify the intent and nature of SGOs, and provide strategies and resources by which to increase SGO quality through better assessments and target setting .  Districts who have not yet attended a session are encouraged to bring teams of up to five educators who will be able to turnkey this information to district staff.  Please click here to view the SGO 2.0 training materials and other SGO resources.

Improving Discussion, Questioning, and Student Engagement
The Office of Evaluation has concluded its summer series for this workshop and would like to thank the participants and our gracious hosts.  While this summer series has concluded, the Office will be providing targeted support in these areas. 

As districts look to provide additional support and further investigate the components of Discussion, Questioning and Student Engagement, the office is providing the materials for district use.  (note: due to browser differences, users might need to copy and paste web links from the presentation into your browser address bar).
