Easily review notes, evidence, and performance levels attached to the criterion. Create and view the Final/Summative Evaluation for the Evaluatee. It utilizes the district range calculations and Washington state-based calculations.
Summary Display Views
The Summary page itself can be seen by both the Evaluator and Evaluatee. However, only when a task has been shared will any information regarding it be seen in the Summary for the Evaluatee.
The standard display of the summary is a matrix, with rows showing the criteria and columns displaying the tasks (Self Evaluations and Evaluations/Observations). There is also a column for a Final Evaluation and an area for suggestions on each of the criteria.
Go directly to the Summary Tab.

Be sure the position level matches how the Evaluatee is being evaluated accurately so the Final Evaluation/Summary provides the correct calculation options. When the school year rolls from year to year, the Evaluatee is systematically promoted to the next position level. (This is a district configuration setting) If you need further assistance, contact email@example.com.
To see criterion detail click the caret to the left of a criterion name.
This displays all the criteria attached, rating selection, and links to open the evidence view.
From here, there are two ways to view the Evidence. (Example: Criterion 1)
- Click the Evidence link on a main/overall criterion. This will display rating options, any file charts, notes associated with the main/overall criterion, and all of the criterion components (1.1, 1.2, etc.)
- Click the Evidence link on a criterion component (1.1, 1.2, etc.) This will display rating options, any files, charts, and notes associated with the selected criterion component for that current year.
See Adding Evidence for more information.
A red corner to the right of the criterion means a criterion is required. These are pre-set up with the Evaluatee’s Position Level.
A blue corner to the right of the criterion means the criteria is Focused. These are set by either the Evaluator or Evaluatee.
See Comprehensive vs. Focus: Marking/Displaying Focus Criteria for more information.
The summary also contains access to an Evaluated Position Reference link, which opens in a new window when clicked. This can also be accessed by clicking the gear icon at the top of the summary.
Rating the Final Evaluation
To add or change a Performance Level Rating, click on an empty box under the Final/Summary Evaluation column, and select a performance level in the drop-down that appears. When selected, the color corresponds to a level, which can be customized per district. Typically it is green = Distinguished/4, blue = Proficient/3, Yellow = Basic/2, and red = Unsatisfactory/1. Repeat this for each criterion component related to the Criterion currently being rated.
This process can be done when reviewing Evidence as well. When completed, exit by clicking Done.
(OPTIONAL). Click the paper icon to the right of the performance level rating. Enter any final criterion notes desired for the selected criterion on the pop-up box, then click Save. Repeat this for any other criterion that notes are needed. These notes will display on the printout using Show Final Notes.
As performance level selections are made in the Final column for Criterion 1-8, in the Preliminary Summative Rating area (if displayed), the ratings will start adding up, and this number will be shown.
As performance level selections are made in the Final column for Sub-Criterion designated Student Growth, in the Student Growth Impact area (if displayed), the ratings will start adding up, and this number will be shown.
A Suggestion will appear when all the overall/main criterion components are given a performance level rating. This suggestion is based on a range customizable by the district per position.
The Evaluator has the choice:
- Accept the suggestion. It will become the selected rating for that criterion/domain. NOTE: Suggestions for the main criterion/domain are based on a range per criterion that can be customizable by the district.
- Dismiss (or ignore) the suggestion and select their rating for that criterion/domain.
Accepting or Dismissing one suggestion does not affect the other suggestions. However, the educator can select the Accept All Suggestions button.
Once the Preliminary Summative Rating and Student Growth Impact selections are made, the Final Summative Rating suggestion is made.
If an Evalautee's Focus is marked correctly, the Preliminary Summative Rating and Student Growth Impact areas will not display.
If the district has been using Evaluations for one or more years and the Evaluatee was at the district, the Evaluatee's 'Most Recent Comprehensive Final Summative Rating' will display.
Minutes input on individual Observations done throughout the year is totaled here to show Total Minutes Observed.
Entering Final Summative Notes
Below the rows and columns and to the left of the Final Summative section, there is an Evaluator Notes box where the Evaluator can add final summative notes.
Click the pencil icon, and it will open a note box. Once notes are entered, click save.
