How Often are Teachers Evaluated?

All but seven states and the District of Columbia formally evaluate teachers for their performance in the classroom. Although such evaluations occur on a periodic basis, some states require that they occur more frequently than others. In Quality Counts 2008, the EPE Research Center reported that only 12 states performed these evaluations at least annually for tenured and non-tenured teachers alike during the 2007-08 school year. Among those states, Arizona, Idaho, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Washington evaluate non-tenured teachers semiannually, while Nevada and New Jersey evaluate non-tenured teachers three times per year.

For more information about the teaching profession and other state-by-state data, search EPE’s Education Counts database.
