Will evaluation data stored in eVAL be publicly available?
No. Evaluations and other evaluation related data can only be accessed by users with permission to view the website. The website is not publicly accessed via the web. Users of the website are directed to eVAL from a second website that manages the roles and permissions of eVAL users.
If eVAL is provided by the State of Washington, does that mean state officials can view my evaluations?
No. Only certain school and district leaders can view the contents of evaluations in eVAL. At the end of each year district officials submit a report to the state, which only contains the number of teaches and principals in each of four levels of proficiency.
Who can use eVAL right now?
eVAL is currently in use by our TPEP pilot sites. The goal is to make the system widely available for our RIG districts and others sometime in 2012.
