Teacher Evaluation and Special Educators: Trends and Issues from the Field

Challenges and experiences as the State shifts from a teacher evaluation system that used a four-factor student characteristic growth model to a multi factor value-added model. We also examine the impact of teacher evaluation systems on collaboration with general education teachers and the potential placement of students with disabilities in general education contexts. This session presents special education teachers’ experiences of one State’s teacher evaluation system.
