Putting the Value in Teacher Evaluation
Culbertson, Jason
Phi Delta Kappan, v94 n3 p14-18 Nov 2012
Managed and supported by the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET), TAP: The System for Teacher and Student Advancement was introduced in 1999 to attract, motivate, and retain talent in teaching by providing opportunities for career advancement, professional development, evaluation, and performance-based compensation. Each of TAP's four elements reinforces the others to form an aligned, interconnected support system for educators with the ultimate goal of improving learning gains for all students. TAP's approach to teacher evaluation has two equally important goals: accurately measuring teacher performance and improving teacher skills through individualized and intensive support.
