At least a dozen states that factor student test scores into teachers’ evaluations count the scores more than New York’s new teacher evaluation framework does.
That’s according to a chart compiled by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office comparing New York’s new teacher evaluation framework against those present in 21 other states with teacher rating systems that incorporate “student growth.” The chart suggests that the state’s framework — which dedicates 40 percent to two different measures of student growth, at least one based on state tests, and 60 percent to subjective measures such as observations — is in line with what other states are doing.
Many of the other states also adopted new evaluation systems in order to secure funding from the U.S. Department of Education.
