IU Study: Teachers More Skeptical of Evaluations Than Administrators

A new survey has yielded perhaps unsurprising results on educators’ sentiments about controversial teacher evaluations — but it likely will add some weight to ongoing criticisms of the state’s evaluation system.

The responses from about 2,000 Indiana educators also reveal the usual disapproval of test scores as a metric of teacher performance and ratings determining raises.
