A new reportRequires Adobe Acrobat Reader, drawing lessons from government agencies, business, and nonprofit organizations, lays out steps education administrators can take to develop better systems for evaluating the performance of teachers and principals.

The six steps include: determining the purposes of performance measurement, choosing job objectives that align with the organization’s overall mission, designing performance measures, setting standards for performance, creating a measurement process, and then using the results to take action—whether that means making decisions about training or dismissal.

The report was produced by Public Impact, a Chapel Hill, N.C.-based consulting firm, and funded by the Joyce Foundation, which also supports coverage of policy efforts to improve teaching in Education Week.
