Danielson Framework
Teacher Evaluation Administrator Recertification Course


In order to recertify, administrators are required by Idaho law to complete a three-credit course in the statewide Danielson framework for teacher evaluation. NNU Center for Professional Development is providing these courses, in-person, throughout the state of Idaho.

Successful completion of the two courses listed below satisfies the Framework to Evaluate Teaching Performance requirement for administrator recertification:

  • Framework: Calibration and Collaborative Self-Assessment of Observation Skills - 1 credit
  • Framework: Observation Skills Using the Framework for Teaching - 2 credits

Framework: Calibration and Collaborative Self-Assessment of Observation Skills

This two-day workshop supports observers and evaluators with an opportunity to calibrate their skills with other professionals and Danielson Consultants. Written observation reports will be analyzed. These workshop credits will be accepted towards the renewal requirement for administrative certification.
