It has limited resources and time to focus on the post-observation conference step in the teacher evaluation cycle. This impact study will examine whether an enhanced feedback guide relative to business-as-usual guidance to principals and teachers improves the structure and content of the principal-teacher SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 feedback conversation, improves quality of teacher instruction as measured by subsequent formal observation ratings, and increases student achievement and state standardized tests.
