How Should Summative Performance Ratings Be Determined?

Summative Rating Beliefs & Best Practices: A Guide to Effective Performance Ratings within the EP Framework

Determining summative performance ratings requires careful consideration and reflection on multiple evidence sources. Effective practices include scheduling focused time for evaluation, using performance rubrics to ensure consistency, and considering both documented and additional evidence. Evaluators should base ratings on the preponderance of evidence collected throughout the evaluation cycle, giving equal weight to various data sources such as observations, artifacts, reflections, and survey analyses. Clear communication of ratings with supporting evidence during summative conferences is essential for a transparent and fair evaluation process.
