Teacher Evaluation: Overview

Teacher evaluation consists of two primary components:

  • Teacher Practice - measured primarily by classroom observations; and
  • Student Achievement  - measured by Student Growth Objectives, and, additionally, Student Growth Percentiles for teachers of students who take state tests.

Components of Teacher Evaluation

A one page description of teacher evaluation is available in Teacher Evaluation and Support.
