In a recent article published by the National Council on Teacher Quality, there are new trends on how states are proceeding with evaluations for the 2020-2021 school year. COVID-19 has affected nearly every aspect of the education system and schools have had to quickly adapt to new teaching and learning environments. Whether in person or remote, how are schools properly evaluating teachers?
NCTQ ongoing research tracks how states will proceed with evaluating teachers. Their analysis examines topics like whether summative evaluations will be required, whether states that required objective measures of student growth prior to the pandemic will continue to require them this year, and whether any modifications have been made to the measure of professional practice. As of mid-October, almost half of all states released teacher evaluation plans for 2020-2021. Below are some of the trends worth noting.
