Improved Teacher Evaluations

January 12, 2010 at 4:30 pm Leave a comment

We wouldn’t expect a students year-long academic performance to be evaluated based on a single test, so why would we evaluate a teacher’s performance based on a single observation?  Isn’t the goal of evaluating and assessing to identify areas of strength as well as weakness? 

It is time for teachers to be evaluated based on clear standards through the use of multiple observations and multiple factors – including their ability to impact student academic growth.

Read about how one teacher’s union, The American Federation of Teachers, is standing up for improved evaluations that support effective teaching.
