Two major state-wide programs in Florida have adopted the Florida Performance Measurement System (FPMS) for the formative and/or summative evaluation of instruction--The Beginning Teacher Program and the Master Teacher Program. Since the state is responsible for compiling and reporting scores in a state-wide system, the Teacher Evaluation Assessment Center (TEAC) was established at the University of South Florida to process data for the Master Teacher Program. Observers using the FPMS in the Master Teacher Program must be trained and certified. Two criterion measures are used as the basis for observer certification: (1) a passing score on a cognitive examination on teacher effectiveness research; and (2) a passing score on two criterion observations using the FPMS summative instrument. The TEAC is responsible for security and maintenance of the cognitive examination and the criterion observation videotapes, their distribution to testing sites, and for scoring and reporting results. This document describes the training of observers, the evaluation methods and criteria used, and the dissemination of results. The appendices present data collected from the Master Teacher component of the program. (JD)
