eVAL is a web-based tool designed to manage and document professional growth and evaluation. Developed in partnership with the Washington Education Association, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Gates Foundation, and Educational Service District 113, eVAL is:
- A free resource used by more than 140 districts in the state of Washington;
- Personalized for each district for their instructional and leadership frameworks, resources, and documents;
- Voluntary for all districts, who can use as many or as few of eVAL’s features as they’d like (or none at all); and
- Extremely secure, with limited physical and virtual access to its servers.
OSPI, the WEA, and ESD 113 continue to fund the development of eVAL. Among the many improvements planned throughout the year, you can expect to see expanded support for instructional frameworks, increased partnerships for evidence gathering, and increased usability on mobile devices.
