Framework for Evaluation and Professional Growth Frequently Asked Questions

Who must be evaluated?
All classroom teachers, including special needs teachers, vocational teachers, and specialist area teachers such as art, PE, or music teachers, as well as Library Media Specialist, Counselors, psychologists, etc.

What evaluation model must be used?
The State Framework for Evaluation and Professional Growth must be used according to state law and State Board of Education Policy.

How often must a teacher be evaluated?
A teacher with an Apprentice License must be evaluated every year. A teacher with a Professional License must be evaluated at least two times during the ten-year period of the license.

How often must a teacher be evaluated? A teacher with an Apprentice License must be evaluated every year. A teacher with a Professional License shall be evaluated once every five years.

As stated in the Teacher Performance Assessment Guide: "Pursuant to Public Chapter No. 376, House Bill 472, of Public Acts, 2007, Section 10, Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 49-5-5205, principals are to conduct a performance assessment two times within a five-year period for each teacher in the principal's school.  This performance assessment guide is designed to provide support for schools and school systems to that end.  This guide provides principals with a tool which incorporates the domains of the approved Framework for Evaluation and Professional Growth and is designed to review data collected over time on individual teachers.  It further incorporates the Future Growth Plan from the teacher's most recent formal evaluation to maintain a focus on areas to be strengthened.  It is designed to insure a focused effort on specific areas that teachers need to improve which directly impact student achievement and overall success."

Are student achievement outcomes or student growth data included as part of the teacher evaluation criteria? Yes

Of what does an evaluation consist?

  • Apprentice Teachers, year 1&2: minimum of 3 observations per year with feedback and accompanying documentation.
  • Apprentice Teachers, year 3: minimum of 2 observations per year with feedback and accompanying documentation.
  • Professional Level Teachers: minimum of 2 observations or Focused Assessment

The Tennessee Framework for Evaluation is the required assessment component for all teachers. This state model provides a comprehensive picture of the performance and effectiveness of educators with their students, as well as a focus for future growth.

All teachers without a Professional license and/or tenure must be observed three (3) times a year using the Frameworks for Evaluation.

Tennessee law requires teachers with a Professional license to have completed two evaluation cycles during the 10 year period of the license using the Framework for Evaluation.  In September 2007, Tennessee Code Annotated added a new element--Instructional Assessment Walk-throughs:  "Principals are to conduct a performance assessment two times within a five year period for each teacher in the principal's school."  This instructional walk-through assessment is designed to incorporate the domains of the Framework and collects data over time on individual teachers. 

Of what does an evaluation consist?
Apprentice Teachers, year 1&2: minimum of 3 observations per year with feedback and accompanying documentation. Apprentice Teachers, year 3: minimum of 2 observations per year with feedback and accompanying documentation. Professional Level Teachers: minimum of 2 observations or Focused Assessment

What is the training?
No one may evaluate a teacher until he or she has been trained in the Framework for Evaluation model. The training consists of 3 days spread over several months. After Day 1 training, the evaluator may begin the evaluation process.

How do we evaluate Library Media Specialists, Counselors, School Psychologists, Social Workers, etc?
These educators are evaluated through the Special Groups Model and the Library Media Specialist Model, both of which are taught during a special half-day training.
