Important Elevate NM Update–April 29, 2021

[For support or help with logging in contact:]

Anyone observing teachers for evaluation purposes in SY21-22 will be required to complete three requirements: two via Canvas – self-paced and one live three-hour session. 

Step 1: Earn a badge (e-certificate of completion) in our self-paced, asynchronous Elevate NM Training for Administrators Course in Canvas 

Step 2: Attend one session of the Elevate NM Canvas Training during the week of June 7-11 or August 9-13 (10 options available to attend one 3-hour live session). When you have completed the Elevate NM Admin Training course, click this link to register for one 3-hour live session training that is convenient for you:

[On this page, you will see 10 opportunities (June or August) for the live Canvas training, please register for only one training because space is limited for each session.]

Step 3: Successfully complete Teacher Evaluation Calibration per state law (in Canvas). You will only be able to access the Calibration once you have completed both the Elevate NM Training Course and attended one (3-hour) live session with Canvas. At the Canvas live training you will receive information on how to access the Calibration.


There will be NO Teacher Evaluation Summative Reports generated by the New Mexico Public Education Department for the school year 2020-2021. This year the New Mexico Public Education Department is asking all educators (both administrators and teachers) to “test drive” the new teacher evaluation called Elevate NM.
