When teacher evaluation systems are implemented with fidelity and with certain tactics, good teachers are more likely to stay, and low-performing teachers are likely to either leave the district or improve.

That's the conclusion of a new study by the National Council on Teacher Quality, a Washington-based think tank that advocates for measuring teacher effectiveness through objective data like test scores. It studied evidence of the outcomes of teacher-evaluation reform in Denver; the Dallas Independent school district; the District of Columbia; Newark, N.J.; New Mexico; and Tennessee.

Teacher ratings in all of the sites improved, it found, and highly effective teachers were likely to stay, while low-rated teachers left.
