Tennessee was one of the first two states to win this funding and a big part of our proposal was that 50% of teacher evaluations would be based on student achievement. They have now decreed that 35% will be standardized test scores and 15% will be other student achievement factors (they haven't told us what that means yet.) NOW....Get this!!!!! For teachers who teach classes that don't have a standardized test from the State, 35% of their evaluation will be based on the school's average test scores in courses that do have standardized tests. You heard right, 35% of the evaluation of their effectiveness as teachers is going to be based on student performance in classes that they don't teach.
