Measuring Learning, Supporting Teaching: Classroom Experts' Recommendations for an Effective Educator Evaluation System
Center for Teaching Quality
The Illinois New Millennium Initiative (NMI) is a statewide team of accomplished, early-career teachers and educators focused on classroom- and community-based solutions to improve public schools. In virtual and face-to-face collaborations, the NMI works to connect research findings with its own teaching experiences in order to design policies and practices that advance its vision of a student-centered, effective teaching profession. This report details recommendations the Illinois New Millennium Initiative has made for transforming teacher evaluations and student assessment in their state. While these recommendations could be implemented in any American public school, they have special importance in Illinois, where the new Performance Evaluation Reform Act (PERA) will be implemented over the next several years. The NMI urges state policymakers to take these into account in implementation design. [This report was produced by the Teachers of the Illinois New Millennium Initiative.]
