​Roster Verification

Roster verification is a process used to provide PVAAS teacher-specific reporting based on accurate data. This process is for teachers and administrators to document and verify that each student is linked accurately to one or more teachers – for the correct state assessment(s) and the appropriate proportion of instructional responsibility. The roster verification process is completed using the PVAAS web-based roster verification system, provided to LEAs by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Individual school districts, intermediate units, and area career and technical schools use roster verification to meet the requirements of teacher specific data as defined in Act 13.  Other LEAs can use the roster verification process to yield growth and achievement metrics based on PSSAs and Keystone exams.
