Making Meaningful Use of Teacher Effectiveness Data


April 2015

Changes in federal policy have sparked a change in focus from teacher qualifications to teacher effectiveness. To respond to this change, states and districts have developed new systems for teacher evaluation comprised of multiple measures. REL West has developed a resource that school and district leaders can use to help consider various approaches.

The two-page logic model looks at the benefits and challenges of different tools of measurement - observation, measures derived from student test results, and student and parent survey ratings - and raises important considerations regarding the collection and use of data. It also provides a rich collection of resources. Please download the tool and visit the Educator Effectiveness Alliance page for more information.
