What kind of score will the new evaluation system generate? What do the scores mean?

Posted by:
Educators' final evaluation rating will be an average of their student growth scores (quantitative scores) and professional practice scores (qualitative scores)- reported on a 1 to 5 point scale. Scores from 1.0-1.9 will be labeled as Ineffective, 2.0-4.0 Effective, and 4.1-5.0 as Highly Effective.  Educators who are identified as Ineffective based upon student growth measures or qualitative measures will be rated as Ineffective overall.
