Update on new school staff evaluation survey

As originally noted in a dispatch dated June 4, changes to the MEDMS Educator Quality and Effectiveness (EQE) Survey are still in progress. The changes discussed in June have since evolved.

The revised and newly renamed “EDFacts School Academic Staff Evaluation Survey” was originally slated for migration to the Department’s NEO platform sometime in August. To provide the best possible survey experience, the new instrument is now scheduled for later this month for school year 2013-14  data collection.

One week prior to the rollout, a separate notice will formally announce the open data entry schedule and survey access information for the collection of EDFacts School Academic Staff Evaluation Survey data for school year 2013-14.
