Report: Most states ineffective in using teacher evaluations to inform policy, practice

The majority of states use student achievement as a major criterion for evaluating teachers, according to a new report released Wednesday by the National Council on Teacher Quality.

But the report contends that most states are “lagging in efforts to use this new information about teacher performance to better inform policy and practice and improve student performance.”

President of NCTQ Kate Walsh said, “Until we connect the dots between the evaluations and stronger policies that improve teacher performance, we will be missing the point of teacher evaluation and selling teachers and students short.”
