How States Evaluate Teachers Varies Widely
States are ramping up their evaluation of teachers. But what they measure is very different across the states.
In the drive to hold teachers more accountable for student learning, states are revolutionizing how they evaluate teachers.
This year, for example, 34 school districts in Illinois will begin evaluating teachers based in part on student test scores for the first time. (Some Chicago teachers have already been evaluated this way.)
Tennessee recently joined a handful of other states in tying student scores to whether their teachers’ keep their licenses.
A new report from the Center for Public Education, an initiative of the National School Boards Association, found that states are tackling teacher evaluation in a variety of ways.
