Accepting the Challenge: Developing Meaningful District Determined Measures (DDMs)
Overview: District Determined Measures (DDMs) measure student impact and are a required part of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Educator Evaluation. As OTs, PTs, SLPs and other Specialized Institutional Support Personnel (SISP) working in Massachusetts Public Schools, we have been challenged to identify DDMs that provide meaningful information and are appropriately aligned to the work that we do. This workshop will begin with an overview of DDMs and will then provide an opportunity for sharing, discussion, and problem solving in order to develop ideas for the elusive SISP DDM! Participants who have DDMs in place and/or in process should come prepared to share these with the group.
