Intensifying Implementation Support: An Interactive Guide to Successful Teacher Evaluation for Professional Growth

The Center on Great Teachers & Leaders released a guide providing practitioners with information that can be used to refine teacher evaluation implementation. This interactive guide is structured around the five common implementation challenges:

  • Time
  • Communication and Stakeholder Engagement
  • Educator Development and Support
  • Alignment With Other Initiatives
  • Data Availability and Use

For each challenge, teachers can explore up to three common components of teacher evaluation: teaching practice, student growth in tested and nontested subjects, and summative ratings. To navigate this guide, teachers can start by taking a self-assessment to help determine which of the five implementation challenges to focus on first, based on their own unique district needs.
