The culmination of a complex three year project is finally here. After three years of interviewing, analyzing, and writing, my co-authors, Audrey Amrein-Beardsley and Clarin Collins, and I just published a journal article called “Putting teacher evaluation systems on the map: an overview of states’ teacher evaluation systems post–every student succeeds act” that lays out an overview teacher evaluation systems after the Every Student Succeeds Act passed.
For this article we interviewed state education personnel from every state then combined that information into accessible and impactful tables and maps. Our goal was to present information about the current state of teacher evaluation systems, but also gather the opinions from local policy makers about the strengths and weaknesses of their states’ system.
The article, published in Education Policy Analysis Archives, is open access (see article here: https://epaa.asu.edu/ojs/article/view/5252)
