Building an Improvement-Focused System of Educator Evaluation in Michigan

Publication date: 
July, 2013

The Michigan Council for Educator Effectiveness worked for 18 months to develop recommendations for a statewide evaluation system to give public school teachers and administrators substantive feedback to help them build their skills and, ultimately, improve student learning. The independent commission of education experts was created by Governor Rick Snyder and the legislature in 2011 as part of the state’s teacher tenure reform efforts. This report details their recommendations of a fair, transparent, and feasible evaluation system for teachers and school administrators. The system is based on rigorous standards of professional practice and of measurement. The goals of this system are to contribute to enhanced instruction, improve student achievement, and support ongoing professional learning.
