Events, Forums, and Trainings

The Evaluation Team provides workshops, trainings, and other direct support to educators across the state. To date we have reached more than 25,000 educators and will continue this work into 2014-15. Please contact us at educatorevaluation@doe.state.nj.us if your district or organization has training needs related to evaluation.

SGO 2.0: from Compliance to Quality The Department will offer additional SGO workshop sessions in August and September for district teams who were unable to make the May/June sessions.  This workshop will clarify the intent and nature of SGOs, and provide strategies and resources by which to increase SGO quality through better assessments and target setting .  Districts who have not yet attended a session are encouraged to bring teams of up to five educators who will be able to turnkey this information to district staff.  Please click here to view the SGO 2.0 training materials and other SGO resources.

Improving Discussion, Questioning, and Student Engagement

The Office of Evaluation is providing workshops throughout the summer that focus on elements of teacher practice.  Attendees will investigate strategies to enhance discussion and questioning techniques as well as student engagement.  Districts are invited to register: 1) Teachers that would benefit from additional support in these areas; 2) Teachers who could serve as lead teachers and provide additional support back in their district; 3) Mentor teachers interested in providing additional support to new teachers in the upcoming year.
The workshop presentation and materials are posted here for easy reference by participants (note: due to browser differences, users might need to copy and paste web links from the presentation into your browser address bar). Additional materials will be developed for use by educators wishing to replicate elements of the training or access standalone materials.

Please contact us at educatorevaluation@doe.state.nj.us if you  have any questions about the workshops. Please register for the live workshops through the registration links in the table below.
