The percentage of instruction for which an individual teacher is responsible in the course by individual student. The Instructional Responsibility Weight will account for multiple instructors sharing instruction of a student in a course.
This percentage is used to appropriately weight student growth in teacher scores, given that multiple teachers may be simultaneously providing direct instruction of course material within a course.
This percentage is dependent on Instructional Relationship Weight. It answers the question: “Of the time this student and teacher were concurrently enrolled in this course, how much instructional responsibility did this teacher have for this course?"
Teachers, school administrators and districts administrators should note that PDE provided professional development sessions for PVAAS Roster Verification and PVAAS Teacher SpecificReporting the term used was “% Full/Partial Instruction.” In the PIMS, the term “Instructional Responsibility Weight” is used to represent the same data and variable.
