Running in Place: How New Teacher Evaluations Fail to Live Up to Promises

January 2017

Running in Place: How New Teacher Evaluations Fail to Live Up to Promises is part of the tenth annual publication in the State Teacher Policy Yearbook report series. This report finds that within the 30 states that require student learning measures to be at least a significant factor in teacher evaluations, state guidance and rules in most states allow teachers to be rated effective even if they receive low scores on the student learning component of the evaluation.
Recommendations for how states can address this challenge are also included in the report.
