Claiming Instructional Responsibility

Users claim instructional responsibility by using two columns: Student + Teacher Assignment and Your % of Instruction. The resources in this section describe how to determine what to enter in each column in a variety of instructional situations.

NCDPI provides worksheets that facilitate calculating instructional responsibility. One is for semester-long courses and the other is for year-long courses.

If you need additional assistance after reviewing these resources, follow these guidelines on whom to contact.

  • Teachers: Contact a school admin or school testing/RV coordinator.
  • School admins: Contact a district admin or district testing coordinator.
  • District admins: Contact a regional case manager (RCM).
  • RCMs: Contact NCDPI.
About the importance of data accuracy
After Roster Verification ends, EVAAS uses the data in the submitted rosters to calculate teachers' value-added measures. In addition, state legislation increasingly relies on growth data for making policy decisions that have an impact on schools and teachers. Therefore, it is critical that the data in the rosters is accurate and teachers personally approve their rosters instead of letting them auto-submit.
  • Teachers, school administrators, and district administrators should work together to ensure that the final verified rosters are accurate.
  • The final verified rosters in Roster Verification are the authoritative source for teacher-student linkages and for the percentage of instructional responsibility each teacher has for each student in subjects tested with a state assessment.
  • Pre-populated rosters that have not been verified by teachers and administrators are neither definitive nor accurate in representing how instruction is delivered in classrooms.
  • Roster Verification is the only way to ensure accurate representation of instructional responsibility.
  • To ensure data integrity, teachers should be proactive in reviewing rosters before they are submitted by the district admin and should communicate with others in the district to ensure that the final verified rosters are accurate. Once Roster Verification ends, roster data cannot be changed by either NCDPI or EVAAS.
