An Examination of Performance-Based Teacher Evaluation Systems in Five States

Full Description: 

A combination of research and federal and state interest in measuring teacher effectiveness has galvanized support for reform of teacher evaluation systems. In this study, EDC researchers found considerable variation in the performance-based teacher evaluation systems in the five states that had implemented statewide systems as of 2010/11. At the same time, all five systems include observations, self-assessments, and multiple rating categories. In addition, the evaluation rubrics in each state reflect most of the teaching standards set out by the Inter-state Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium.
