Award winning Principal Carrol Burris from Long Island has dissected the entire new and not so improved teacher and principal evaluation system in New York State. Read her critique,of the newly released Regents regulations. Also, be sure to study the matrix on page 21 and you will pretty much understand the basics.
The short version: Student test score results will make up 50% of teacher ratings.
From Carrol Burris:
Half of a teacher’s evaluation will be dependent on the performance of her students. For 3-8 teachers of Common Core English and/or mathematics, that rating (Ineffective, Developing, Effective of High Effective) will be either 100% dependent on Common Core tests, or 80% dependent on Common Core tests.
The complex question and fuzzy details concern how each of the test score and observation parts will be decided.
In addition, the observations from someone outside the school will only make up a small percentage of the rating.
