Oregon to Rate Teacher Success by Test Scores

Written by Jake Baez on April 22, 2014

With a may first deadline looming to comply with new Federal Guidelines the Oregon Department of Education and Teachers Union agreed to let student improvement play a role in how teachers are evaluated.

For now those test scores will comprise just a fifth of the overall ranking. 

It’s still unclear what level that improvement will need to be. The rankings won’t play a role in teacher pay and it’s unlikely any would be fired but a poorly performing teacher could be first in line to be laid off. 

According to The Oregonian top-ranked teachers could be rewarded with more independence in how they can teach.
