Why are calibration tasks associated with only seven elements from the Classroom Teacher Rubric?

The elements included in OPTIC system represent those practices that are (a) observable, and (b) considered fundamental in ensuring impact on student learning, growth, and achievement regardless of teacher role or experience. Five of the seven are included in the Candidate Assessment of Performance (CAP) Rubric (the performance assessment used for teacher candidates). Limiting content on the platform to a subset of elements also allows users to more easily access comparison data across roles, schools, and the state. DESE and TeachForward anticipate requests to expand the library of elements, however, and are exploring options to make this function available in the future.
