Although evaluation rubrics for educators other than teachers and principals (e.g. nurses, librarians, supervisors, etc.) may differ based on their specific roles, all educators in certificated positions in New Jersey must be appropriately evaluated.
Teacher evaluation consists of two primary components:
- Teacher Practice – measured primarily by classroom observations; and
- Student Achievement – measured by Student Growth Objectives, and, additionally, Student Growth Percentiles for teachers of students who take state tests.
