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