Pilot program makes teacher evaluations more ‘developmental than judgmental’
Sunday, February 3, 2013
The state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has embarked on a significant new pilot project designed to improve the state’s system for evaluating educators, in hopes it will lead to improved student test scores and an enhanced educational experience for Missouri’s children.
Paul Katnik, who serves as interim assistant commissioner for the Office of Educator Quality, said hundreds of people have helped develop the pilot program. “But the most important aspect is that the people involved in the work are a part of this,” he said.
