A Quality Teacher in Every Classroom: An Evaluation System that Works for California

We are pleased to share our first report, A Quality Teacher in Every Classroom: An Evaluation System that Works for California.

This report, one in a series to be released by ACT, examines teacher evaluation. We chose to begin here because we believe that without a common understanding of what constitutes teaching quality and how teachers should be evaluated, any further conversation about improving teaching will be inconsequential. The recommendations in this report are drawn from research, analysis of existing policies, input from academic experts, and our own experiences as promoters of quality teaching. This report offers our recommendations on making teacher evaluation a more useful tool to advance the quality of teaching across California.

If you want to leave a comment or ask a question about the report, please visit our InterACT blog.
