Report: 21 States Include Student Achievement
Alexander Russo | September 10, 2012
We’re waiting for the district and teachers union to come up with some sort of deal to comply with the Stull Act’s requirement that teacher evaluations include some measure of pupil progress (see our most recent update here). In the meantime, you might want to know that 21 states — not including California — have already moved to include student achievement as part of teacher evaluation over the past three years, according to this new SI&A article (Student scores at heart of new teacher ratings nationally) based on a Washington DC think tank survey of states. The details vary widely, and there’s no single best way, but clearly it can be done.
