The National Association of Secondary School Principals is calling for more-comprehensive teacher evaluations and training for school leaders who conduct them. In a position statement, the NAASP's board of directors recommended that teacher-performance appraisals be based on research-supported best practices and include multiple measures of performance, such as student portfolios. The group also encouraged Congress to establish a federal definition for a "highly effective" teacher based on multiple measures of performance.
