MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new teacher evaluation system being worked on by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will take into account both how students perform and how well teachers are doing their jobs.
The DPI released a framework of the new evaluation system affecting both teachers and principals on Monday. Work has been ongoing on the system for nearly a year and plans are to gather more feedback before implementing a limited launch of the new system over the next two years. Statewide implementation is planned for the 2014 school year.
Student performance measures would include data from state and local school district tests, how well they meet learning objectives and other markers including reading at the elementary level.
Teacher measurements include instructional strategies, classroom organization and collaboration with others.
