Evaluation for Library Media Specialists

This is an exciting year! This year we will be piloting our new evaluation tools. All of our tools are in draft form. Thank you to our School Library Media Evaluation Task Force for your work on this document. Below you will find:
The Evaluation Tool is divided into 4 Standards: (These 4 documents will be added soon.)
  1. Planning and Preparation of Daily Instruction and the School Library Program
  2. Learning Climate for Daily instruction and to Ensure the Flexibility of the School Library Program
  3. Instruction and Professional Development of Staff and Administration
  4. Instruction and Professionalism of the School Librarian
Each Standard has two focuses: Instruction and Program

  • Instruction focuses on the library media specialist's ability to plan, develop, organize, teach, reflect and assess all the components of effective teaching - as it relates to the Standard (1-4).
  • Program focuses on the day to day function of planning, developing, organizing, sharing, reflecting and assessing all the components of an effective school library program as it relates to the Standard (104).
Each Standard (1-4) is explained in detail by providing a comprehensive explanation for each rating level of the rubric: Unsatisfactory, Basic, Proficient, and Distinguished.
More documents will be added. Please remember that is one is in draft form.
