Are Ohio teachers making the grade?

Alissa Widman Neese • Feb 4, 2013 at 4:22 PM

Educators statewide are preparing for an overhaul of Ohio’s teacher evaluation system, which for the first time will rate teachers based on how much their students learn.

Evaluations currently follow no strict guidelines and are based almost entirely on a teacher’s performance.

Two components will now equally factor into a teacher’s yearly final grade:

• Teacher performance, or how well teachers perform during observations and on an evaluator’s rubric and written assessment.

• Student growth, or how well students perform on standardized tests and in other measurable areas.
