Ohio implements law on how teachers are rated

06/10/2014 | Plain Dealer (Cleveland), The

A new law allows Ohio school districts to minimize the use of student test scores in grading teacher performance. Districts can use tests to account for 42.5% of a teacher's assessment with another 42.5% coming from classroom observations and lesson evaluations. The remaining 15% will be made up of parent and student surveys and other feedback. The law also will not use scores during the first year of Common Core State Standards testing in 2014-15 as a measure for teacher performance.
