University of Missouri - NEE

The Network for Educator Effectiveness (NEE) is a comprehensive system for enhancing the effectiveness of K-12 educators.

NEE is a comprehensive evaluation system based on new Missouri standards for educators and including a web-based platform for storing and managing data on each educator in the building/district.

Beginning in 2012 the system was pilot tested by 22 Missouri school districts, with training and implementation completed for approximately 180 school districts and 900 evaluators by the summer of 2013. NEE currently includes evaluation management for classroom instructors, but is currently being piloted for principals, with pilots for library/media specialists, speech and language pathologists, and school counselors soon to follow.

The Network for Educator Effectiveness (NEE) trains evaluators to make consistent and reliable assessments of educators’ professional effectiveness, engagement with students, professional development activities, and achievement of goals. It creates a common understanding among all educators and administrators of the criteria, standards, and rubrics used for evaluation.

 NEE focuses on helping educators grow and improve. It assists principals in developing the skills of each teacher from the beginning, first-year instructor through and including mid-career and experienced practitioners. The NEE is a cohesive system helping administrators fulfill their responsibility to improve effectiveness in their buildings and districts.

The Network for Educator Effectiveness (NEE) is a collaborative effort of two auxiliary units of the College of Education at the University of Missouri: the Heart of Missouri Regional Professional Development Center (RPDC) and the Assessment Resource Center (ARC).
