State Supt: Test Results Should Be Minimized in Educator Evaluations

eversState Superintendent Tony Evers issued a statement Dec. 21 asking for change in state law to minimize the use of state standardized test results in the evaluation of educators.

In the statement Evers says he believes there is too much emphasis on standardized tests and the new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act, gives states the option to use local data in place of state test results in the Educator Effectiveness System.
